The last thing you want to do as an NHL player or executive is have your career cut short over things you can't control, like injuries or declining health. Last April, the latter happened to the San Jose Sharks general manager, Doug Wilson. Now, he could be nearing an NHL return.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman and Mercury News, Wilson's health has improved to the point that he's looking to get back in the game. Take a look:

Wilson stepped away from the Sharks Organization last April to care for an undisclosed health issue.

The fact that Wilson, at the age of 65, is not only feeling better but wants to continue his career is a good sign. He was seen with his son, a scout for the Seattle Kraken, at an Arizona Coyotes game not too long ago.

The question is, where does he fit? Does he go back to the Sharks? If so, in what capacity?

No matter how Wilson returns to the National Hockey League, it's amazing he's in a position to be able to look into continuing his career.
