WELLWOOD UP
The Flyers have recalled forward Eric Wellwood from their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, this morning.

Wellwood is at the team's morning skate at Madison Square Garden and will be available to play in tonight's Flyers-Rangers game. He will wear No. 11.

Wellwood has six goals and 12 points in 43 games with the Phantoms this season.

He appeared in the first four games with the Flyers this season before being loaned to Adirondack. He went scoreless and averaged 9:25 of ice time with the Flyers.

An extra body needed for practice. Also, could be a candidate to play if a fast skater is desired for one of the games this week.

Tomorrow (March 6) is his birthday according to the roster page.

Hopefully he'll replace Harry Z.

Knuble not with extras, so it appears he is in tonight.

Wellwood may be just an extra player. Knuble has been healthy scratch last two games and needs to play. #Flyers

GingerFetish 03-05-2013 10:35 AM

Nooo :(

Knuble better not mess this up.

GoneFullHextall 03-05-2013 10:54 AM

meh.
Wellwood is all speed and no hands.

that is true, but knuble is absolute garbage. Wellwood should be playing for Harry Z. At least he can get in on the forecheck and backcheck.

He just needs to be there for moral support. He has been absolutely awful when on the ice

I know I'm in the minority but I really like Wellwood. He's the epitome of a guy handcuffed by positional and organizational depth. Everyone locks onto his speed but I think he's shown real poise at times during his call-ups.

If he was ever moved, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him blossom on another team's 3rd line.

hckyplayer8 03-05-2013 11:26 AM

Thoroughly enjoy Wellwood. Much rather have him in over Knuble.

Lol, this. I'd much rather Wellwood than Knuble.

PhillyFlying 03-05-2013 12:30 PM

foppa to replace coots on the third line? :sarcasm:

RoDu 03-05-2013 02:39 PM

This reminds me of Knuble's speed

shipwreck 03-05-2013 02:57 PM

I have stated before that I like ol' Wellwood.... For some strange reason....

RJ8812* 03-05-2013 04:12 PM

Wellwood is the lesser of two evils (Knuble)

but is there really not anyone else on the Phantoms we can re-call? That's friggin sad

FlyersFan61290 03-05-2013 04:20 PM

Not a wellwood fan. i honestly would prefer Knuble over him just for his experience and leadership. Have him play like 8 minutes and hope he doesn't take a stupid penalty.

I think the phantoms have better options though and i'm really puzzled as to why they aren't getting the call. i could see akeson doing decently on Couts wing with Gags on the other side or Noebels even being a better option then Wellwood.

Wellwood is perfectly fine in a bottom six role. Doesn't make sense to bring up Akeson or Noebels if they're getting spoonfed ice time. Wellwood knows his role and plays it well. As others have said, he should be in over Knuble. As much as I like Mike, he's done.

Cyborg LeClair 03-05-2013 05:11 PM

I'm in the group hoping Wellwood starts over Knuble.

I went to the Phantoms vs Hershey Bears game last weekend when they got shutout 3-0. Wellwood was CLEARLY our best player on the team and was the only one making things happen out there.

Damaged Goods 03-05-2013 05:18 PM

Wellwood belongs. If I was a Flyers opponent, I would much rather try to execute against a crafty traffic cone like Knuble than a smart, speedy checker like Wellwood.

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-05-2013 05:19 PM

Another thing to consider is that in Harry Z's absence, the four games will be played in six days including back-to-back games this weekend.

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-06-2013 10:37 AM

Wellwood has been returned to the Phantoms.

The Flyers do not have any practice scheduled for today.
