August 2013 – Wellwood suffered a gruesome skate cut in April 2013. The injury severed 3 tendons, an artery, and 70% of his Achilles. The long rehabilitation process began in May 2013, leaving hope of a full recovery by hockey season uncertain. Jenn Lardani


January 2013 – He has had a disappointing season thus far after showing upside last season. Was recently reassigned to Adirondack where he has only compiled nine points in 29 games thus far on a team that featured Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier for three months. His AHL coach plans on shaking him up and getting him back to working hard again. Jason Banks


May 2012 – Eric Wellwood is an undersized forward who works hard and constantly exceeds expectations.  The former sixth-round pick has never posted great numbers at any level, yet at age 22 he has already worked his way onto the Philadelphia Flyers’ roster.  This season he posted 21 points in 33 games in the AHL for Adrionack and also potted nine points in 24 games in the NHL.  Additionally, he suited up for 11 playoff contests with the Flyers but was held without a point.  Wellwood’s history shows that he may have a pretty limited offensive ceiling but he has already proved that he can play good depth minutes in the NHL.



Fantasy Outlook: E

Limited upside, but Wellwood is ready to contribute in the NHL in a depth role.
