The Nashville Predators have traded Colin Wilson to the Colorado Avalanche for a fourth-round pick in 2019.

Wilson has spent his entire career with the Predators after being drafted seventh overall in 2008.

“Colin brings experience and depth to our lineup,” Avalanche GM Joe Sakic said in a press release. “He’s a two-way player who plays a strong game and is a good pro.”

The 27-year-old had 35 points in 70 regular-season games for the Predators in 2016-17. In 502 career games he has 95 goals and 142 assists, plus 24 points in 47 carer playoff contests.
