Report: Predators, Colin Wilson $1.25M apart in contract talks ahead of arbitration
The Nashville Predators have been down this road before.
With forward Colin Wilson's arbitration hearing set for Tuesday, the two sides are believed to be $1.25 million apart in contract talks.
The player is seeking $4.25 million, while the team is offering $3 million, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.
It's a similar situation to the one the Predators faced with Craig Smith, who agreed to terms on a five-year, $21.25-million deal in advance of his hearing.
Wilson, 25, set career highs in goals (20), points (42) and shots (172) in 2014-15, and scored five goals in the club's six playoff games.
He was drafted seventh overall by the Predators in 2008.
