We had the pleasure of interviewing Colin Wilson of the Nashville Predators. He was drafted 7th Overall in the 2008 NHL Draft. He has also represented Team USA multiple times, whether it be the World Under 18 (2006,2007), World Junior Championships (2008,2009) or the World Championships (2009), Colin Wilson has a plethora of international experience.

Go to the rink from 8:30-1:00 then grab lunch with the guys and play video games or read the rest of the day.
I am just a laid back person who is generally focused on hockey. I am extremely into music and have mixed a few of my own songs.
It was very exciting, I had been anticipating the draft since the end of the season that year. I just remember hugging my family and thinking to myself to not fall.
I enjoy playing with anyone on my current team. When I was younger I really enjoyed playing with James Van Riemsdyk.
Highest point was reaching the NHL and becoming a regular.
Probably just when I was sent to the minors the first time, I hadn’t been cut from a team since I was 14, so it was tough to handle.
I am just a huge fan of the classic leaner against the hotel room door. Seen it done various ways and it is funny every time.
To always enjoy the game because it turns into a job when you don’t. If you want to be a top player do everything within your power to be the best.
