Wilson played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League, and competed for the 2011 Memorial Cup as a member of the Owen Sound Attack. His outstanding play during the 2010–11 OHL season was recognized when he was named to the OHL First All-Star Team.
In the 2015–16 season, Wilson split the year between the Panthers and AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates. Wilson was scoreless in a career-best 29 games with Florida. He registered his first NHL point in the post-season, assisting Alex Petrovic's game-winning goal in Game 4 against the New York Islanders.
At the conclusion of the season, Wilson was not tendered a contract to remain with the Panthers. On July 7, 2016, he was signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Stanley Cup champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Wilson joined the Penguins AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, where he was named an alternate captain. He re-signed with the Penguins on July 1, 2017.
Wilson began the 2018–19 season in the AHL where he was named the captain of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He was recalled to the Penguins on November 6 but after going pointless in four games he was assigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Wilson scored his first NHL career goal on February 9, 2019 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
As a free agent from the Penguins, Wilson agreed to a one-year, $725,000 contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 23, 2019.
