Predators prospect to get 'carded'

Colin Wilson, one of the Nashville Predators’ top prospects, is one of 14 National Hockey League prospects invited to take part in the Upper Deck NHL Rookie Debut next Wednesday at Missassauga, Ontario.

The event provides Upper Deck, a trading card and memorabilia company, the opportunity to photograph the players in their NHL uniforms for use in its products.

Wilson was the Predators’ top pick (seventh overall) in 2008. He signed an entry level contract in April shortly after he helped Boston University to the NCAA championship.

He is viewed as a candidate to make the NHL roster this season.

This is the first time Upper Deck will conduct an event such as this in conjunction with the NHL.
