Wilson (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for most of training camp, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Even fully fit, Wilson was going to be hard pressed to break into the Leafs' lineup for Opening Night against the Senators on Oct. 2. There is an outside chance he could still end up on the 23-man roster, but fellow new additions Pontus Aberg, Ilya Mikheyev and Kalle Kossila, not to mention returner Frederik Gauthier, will likely pass Wilson over while he is recovering. Look for Wilson to begin the year in the minors with AHL Toronto, and likely spend the bulk of the season there as well.
Wilson will miss part of Toronto's training camp due to a hamstring injury, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Wilson was already a longshot to be included in the lineup for the Maple Leafs' regular-season opener against the Senators on Oct. 2, and this injury certainly won't help his chances. Another update on the 28-year-old winger's status should emerge once he's cleared to join his teammates on the ice at camp, which will get underway Sept. 13.
