News: Capitals head coach Barry Trotz indicated there was an "outside chance" that Wilson (ankle) would return to action during the team's upcoming three-game road trip in Western Canada, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports. Impact: Wilson (ankle) has yet to play this season as he rehabs from surgery to repair a broken leg sustained during the offseason. Although Wilson might "catch the tail end" of the trip, he is also just as likely to be sent to AHL Hershey for a conditioning assignment, so he's still a risk to add in single-season leagues at this time, although the time for his season debut appears to be drawing closer.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Barry Trotz said that Wilson (leg) will not return to action for at least two more games, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Wilson resumed practicing earlier this week, but it still sounds like he's a little behind the rest of his mates in terms of conditioning work. Look for the Capitals to send him to AHL Hershey for a rehab assignment before activating him from injured reserve.(RotoWire, )

News: Wilson (leg), who was officially placed on injured reserve, was able to practice Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Wilson appears to be trending toward the finishing line in his recovery from a broken fibula, but it seems likely he'll have to begin his campaign at AHL Hershey, either for rehab action or as a straight-up assignment. The young winger was in the lineup for all 82 games last season, but didn't make much of an impact while averaging less than eight minutes per night.(RotoWire, )

News: Wilson (leg) may not be ready to play until November, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' website reports. Impact: Wilson may plan an expanded role for the Capitals at some point this season, but he has not recovered from offseason surgery as quickly as hoped, and it remains to be seen when he will be able to take the ice next.(RotoWire, )
