  • His dad, Carey, played 12 seasons in the NHL (Calgary, Hartford and NY Rangers), played for Team Canada at the 1984 Olympics and also helped Team Canada win their first-ever World Junior Championships in 1982.
  • His grandfather, Gerry Wilson, had a brief stint in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens and later was the Winnipeg Jets team doctor.
  • His nickname is ‘Willy’ and he wears the same number that his dad wore in the NHL – 33.
  • Credits his dad – “he taught me until I was 15” and his coach in Ann Arbor, Ron Rolston – “he developed me into a hockey player”, as having had the most influence in his career.
  • The best advice he has every received came from his dad – “it’s all about winning the little battles”.
  • Patterns his game after Colorado’s Peter Forsberg – “he is a gritty player with great vision”.
  • His most embarrassing hockey moment was after scoring a hat trick in an all-star game at the age of 12 – “ I got excited and I did the moon walk. My dad came into the bench telling me if I ever did that again he would take me off the ice”.
  • The one thing he couldn’t live without is his cell phone and if he wasn’t playing hockey he would be living in Winnipeg going to the University of Manitoba.
