Predators Ink Kelsey Wilson
Milwaukee, WI–Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Kelsey Wilson to a one-year, two-way deall.
Wilson returns to North America after one season with EC Red Bull Salzburg, which he helped win the Erste Bank Liga (Austria) title in 2009-10. The Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., native led the Austrian League in penalty minutes (265) while amassing 40 points (16g-33a) in 70 games a season ago. Prior to his season abroad, Wilson spent three campaigns with Milwaukee (AHL), leading the Admirals in penalty minutes in all three seasons (2006-09). In 2008-09, the Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., native was one of just four AHLers to post at least 30 points (15g-17a-32pts) and 150 penalty minutes (160), and in 2006-07, he led all AHL rookies in penalty minutes (215).
Originally signed by Nashville as an amateur free agent on Oct. 6, 2006, the 6-1, 214-pound left winger has 70 points (32g-38a) and 554 penalty minutes in 220 American Hockey League contests.
