He'll be a fine second-third liner, I don't know if he has enough talent to become a full time first liner, but a solid second or third line centre is something really valuable to a team. He'll do just fine.
Every player you named has oustanding skating abilities; Wellwood doesn't. Also, St. Louis is built like a tank. Wellwood needs to build up his strength because he doesn't have the speed to compensate. A more suitable comparison to Wellwood is Ribeiro or Yannic Perrault.
