Observations

April 2018 – Adam Wilcox is appeared in his first NHL games at the tail end of March against his former team, the Panthers. He came in for relief and saved all 14 shots he faced in a loss. In the AHL he put up a 2.79 GAA along with a .903 save percentage this year with Rochester in 29 games on a weak team. Wilcox will look to get some more looks in the NHL next year and improve his play. Marcus Griep

March 2017 – The Panthers have done a minor-league goalie swap with their Florida state rival, trading Mike McKenna to Tampa Bay for Wilcox. The 24-year-old was clearly stuck behind Andrei Vasilevskiy and Kristers Gudlevskis on Tampa’s depth chart. Time will tell whether he will see any time in the Panthers’ crease. Wilcox had an 18-9-2 record with Syracuse this season while posting a save percentage of .895 and GAA of 2.87. Joel Gluss

September 2016 – Adam Wilcox had a rather poor year in net this past season with the Syracuse Crunch, posting a 3.34 GAA and .891 SV%. With the Lightning taking yet another goalie in the draft this past June in Connor Ingram, Wilcox could see his time running short with the Tampa Bay Lightning organization. The terrific play of Andrei Vasilevskiy and Kristers Gudlevskis does not help his case either. Max Marko

June 2015 – A cousin of San Jose Sharks’ netminder Alex Stalock, Wilcox emulates Stalock by aggressively challenging shooters. Confident in his ability, Wilcox progressed nicely during three seasons at the University of Minnesota, signing a two-year entry-level contract with the Lightning in April. In 38 games with the Golden Gophers in his last season of college hockey, he had a 22-12-3 record that included six shutouts with a 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage. The Gophers earned their second consecutive Big 10 regular-season title before falling 4-1 to Minnesota-Duluth in the northeast regional semi-finals. Wilcox made a brief, undistinguished pro debut with Tampa’s AHL affiliate in Syracuse, losing both late-season starts with the Crunch while posting a 3.18 GAA and .875 save percentage. Wilcox then stopped 14 of 15 shots in 32 minutes of relief in his lone post-season appearance. – Mark Allan
