Description: Kyle Wellwood broke his foot in Saturday's game against the Lightning. Wellwood's injury will sideline him for the remainder of the season.
Insight: Wellwood was playing some of his best hockey of the season before his unfortunate foot injury (six points in his final four games). Either way it was a nice comeback year for Wellwood, who tallied a career-high 47 points in 2011-12. He'll be back for more at the start of 2012-2013.

Description: The Winnipeg Jets have signed Kyle Wellwood to a one-year, one-way contract worth $700,000. Winnipeg Sun
Insight: Since he doesn't score consistenly enough, Wellwood will likely assume a spot on the Jets' third or fourth line. Ignore him in fantasy leagues.
 
4/5/2011 1:04:00 AM
Description: Kyle Wellwood scored a goal and added two assists with a +3 in the Sharks' 6-1 win over Los Angeles on Monday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Since joining the Sharks from the KHL via the St. Louis Blues, Wellwood has ten points (5g-5a) in 32 games. This might be stating the obvious, but he's not a player who should be considered for fantasy rosters.

Description: The San Jose Sharks have claimed forward Kyle Wellwood off waivers from the St. Louis Blues. TSN
Insight: Wellwood was already thought to be clearing waivers, as he was already at the Blues' facility practicing with the team. The struggling Sharks have been busy on Tuesday, adding both Wellwood and Ben Eager to the fold. It will be interesting to see where Wellwood fits in with the Sharks, although he'll likely be used as a third-line forward.
 
1/17/2011 12:08:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Blues have officially announced the signing of Kyle Wellwood. Louie Korac
Insight: A story last week revealed that the Blues were about to sign Wellwood, but he had to be officially released from his KHL contract first. He will need to clear waivers over the next 24 hours before he can join the Blues. Don't expect any team to claim Wellwood, even though he has only signed for the rest of the season.
 
1/11/2011 12:52:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Blues have reportedly signed Kyle Wellwood to a one-year contract, although the announcement is pending his official release from the KHL. TSN
Insight: Wellwood was recently released from his KHL contract after scoring just eight points in 25 games. He will need to clear waivers before he is officially on the Blues' roster, but it seems unlikely that another team will claim him given his recent production.
 
10/3/2010 8:59:00 PM
Description: Kyle Wellwood has signed a one-year contract with Atlant Moscow Oblast of the KHL. Sportsnet
Insight: Wellwood and the Phoenix Coyotes could not agree on a contract, so he was released from his tryout. If he lights the lamp in Russia, Wellwood could find his way back into the NHL.
 
10/1/2010 8:55:00 PM
Description: The Phoenix Coyotes have released forward Kyle Wellwood from his professional tryout. TSN
Insight: The Coyotes appeared to be too deep up the middle to afford a spot for Wellwood. He struggled to just 25 points (14g-11a) in 75 games last season, and he doesn't provide many other intangibles that are needed for a spot in an NHL lineup. That being said, don't be surprised if another NHL team gives him a shot.
 
9/8/2010 8:05:00 PM
Description: The Phoenix Coyotes have invited center Kyle Wellwood to training camp on a tryout basis.
Insight: Wellwood has looked to be both soft and inconsistent at times, so owners shouldn't expect much by way of production from him, assuming he even makes the team. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/7/2010 9:18:00 PM
Description: Kyle Wellwood has been invited to the Phoenix Coyotes' training camp on a tryout basis. Phoenix Coyotes
Insight: Wellwood, known more for his past conditioning issues, will attempt to earn a spot on the Coyotes' roster. Don't expect him to be any higher than a third-liner if he does make the team.
 
8/19/2010 12:01:00 PM
Description: Kyle Wellwood has not received much interest in the free agent market. Vancouver Sun
Insight: Wellwood scored 25 points in 75 games for the Canucks last season, but the Canucks brought in Manny Malhotra to assume Wellwood's role. Wellwood's one-time reputation for poor conditioning may be playing a role in teams' lack of interest. Wellwood hasn't ruled out Europe as a possible destination.
