The Nashville Predators on Tuesday signed former first round pick Colin Wilson to a three-year contract worth $6 million.
The Greenwich, Connecticut native will make $1.5 million in 2012-13, $2 million in 2013-14 and $2.5 million in 2014-15.
Wilson, 22, was selected in the first round, 7th overall, by the Predators in the 2008 NHL Draft.
He set career highs in assists at 20 while scoring 16 goals last season. The six foot-one, 212-pounder also tied for second on the Predators in game-winning goals and fourth on the club in power-play goals this past season.
In 185 career NHL contests since the start of the 2009-10 season Wilson has 39 goals and 45 assists.
