RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Wilson is as young as they come in the NHL. He saw three games last postseason at the ripe young age of 19. The Caps will test him during camp this offseason, seeing how well he matches up against larger and more experienced NHL players but the 6í 4Ē 210 pound winger should be able to hold his own. Fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on Wilsonís status as their draft approaches since power forwards with offensive upside are always in demand. He is well worth a long look in keeper leagues but he is several years away from the NHL.
