The Nashville Predators’ Colin Wilson thinks a lot about thinking.
Wilson, a 25-year-old forward, worked with a sports psychologist early in his pro career, found he liked it and has focused more on the mental part of his game in recent years. For him, it’s a way of comprehending why he has certain thoughts and trying to use that to make him a better player.
“I really like it,” said Wilson, who uses a sports psychologist outside of the Predators’ organization. “I think in the beginning when you start realizing how your thoughts can create this reality, I think it kind of is a little bit of a shock to you at the beginning. I think it’s an important part of life.
“I’m getting more into it now. It’s more just understanding your thought. I think there’s times where you know you can make a situation out to be too much pressure on yourself; you can make it however you want it to. It’s just something I’ve been focusing on. It seems to be working right now.”

Predators prospect Colin Wilson appears close to making his NHL debut, thanks in part to a relatively new sports medical procedure.
Wilson suffered a strained groin early in training camp but underwent a blood platelet treatment a couple of weeks ago that has apparently helped the healing process.
Coach Barry Trotz didn’t specify the name of the treatment, but the process he described — in which platelets were removed from the injured area, mixed and then returned to the body — sounds identical to platelet-rich plasma.
In PRP, which has only been used in the sports field in recent years, a small sampling of the patient’s blood is placed into a centrifuge that rotates at high speed.
