Nashville Predators forward Colin Wilson was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and could return to the lineup for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVA Sports).

The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2.

Wilson joined fourth-line center center Frederick Gaudreau during line rushes and drills, with Harry Zolnierczyk and PA Parenteau rotating on the oppsoite wing.

"[Wilson] has been coming along good," forward James Neal said. "He looked good out there."

During a 3-on-2 drill in practice, Wilson constantly was with Gaudreau, and Zolnierczyk and Parenteau sharing time. Wilson has been out with an undisclosed injury and hasn't played in the Stanley Cup Final.

"He's one of those guys who can really bring a lot to the table," forward Filip Forsberg said. "He's a really hardworking guy with a lot of skill and can bring the physicality as well, so he's definitely one of those guys that can really make a difference."

Wilson has two goals and two assists in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He missed the entire Western Conference First Round against the Chicago Blackhawks with a lower-body injury.

During the regular season, he had 35 points (12 goals, 23 assists) in 70 games.
