Colin Wilson is an American, not Canadian

From John Glennon of the Tennessean:

Colin Wilson calls Canada home, but the U.S. is his nation of choice.

Wilson was born in a Connecticut hospital and spent his first three years in New York, but has lived ever since in Winnipeg, where his father — former NHL player Carey Wilson — grew up.

The younger Wilson was in the midst of trying out for a Canadian national junior team at age 15 when U.S. National Training and Development Program officials spotted him.

Wilson will probably have an easier time making international teams for the US than he would for Canada.
