NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rookie Colin Wilson had a goal and two assists, and Nashville captain Jason Arnott had a goal and an assist in a 5-0 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Thursday night in the pre-season opener for both.

Wilson signed with the Predators in the off-season after capping his sophomore season at Boston University with a national championship.

Arnott gave Nashville a 2-0 lead at 17:43 of the first. On Nashville's third goal, Steve Sullivan slid a pass to Arnott, who sent a cross-ice pass to J.P. Dumont, who scored on a wrist shot.

Nashville defencemen Teemu Laakso and Shea Weber also scored.

Dan Ellis started in goal for Nashville, stopping 13 shots. Mark Dekanich replaced him midway through the second period.
