Is the signing of collegiate prospect Adam Wilcox in the immediate future?

This tweet by Lindsay Kramer of Syracuse.com follows rumblings that have been around today since the signing of Matthew Peca by the Lightning (with his ATO also signed so he can join the Crunch). If Adam Wilcox ends up unsigned this week, there is a much more prominent chance the goalie will become a unrestricted free agent over the summer. Wilcox has played three seasons with the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. This past season he posted a 2.42 GAA and a .912 save percentage in 38 game, his record was 22-12-3. Like Peca, Wilcox was taken during the 2011 NHL draft; in Wilcox's case he was selected in the 6th round (178th overall).
