Former Jet Wellwood Retires

News: Kyle Wellwood has announced his retirement from hockey, according to a report by Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun. Wellwood managed one goal and two assists in nine games with EV Zug of the Swiss League this season.
Analysis: It is a bit surprising to hear that Kyle Wellwood is calling it a career after parts of nine seasons in the NHL and a brief stint in Europe. Wellwood will finish his NHL career with 92 goals and 143 assists for 235 points in 489 career games. He was a talented player who had trouble staying in shape and was an option for fantasy owners in deeper leagues when he was playing his best.

Jets' Wellwood signs with EV Zug in Switzerland

News: Kyle Wellwood has signed a one month contract with EV Zug of the National League A in Switzerland, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood managed 15 points in 39 games for Winnipeg last season. In general he was a marginal fantasy play on a short-term basis as an NHL player and the Jets' organization is hopeful that Mark Scheifele is ready to make the jump to the NHL on a more permanent basis, so Wellwood's move overseas shouldn't be too difficult to deal with for fantasy owners.

Jets' Wellwood Out For Season

News: Kyle Wellwood injured his right hand after blocking a shot in the second period of Monday's 2-1 win over Buffalo, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The news marks the second straight season that Kyle Wellwood will end the year sitting on the sidelines. The playmaking forward hurt his foot in the 78th game of the year last season. Nik Antropov will most likely take Wellwood's place in the lineup for the remainder of the season.

Kyle Wellwood

Jets' Wellwood Out For Season

News: Kyle Wellwood injured his right hand after blocking a shot in the second period of Monday's 2-1 win over Buffalo, reports.
Analysis: The news marks the second year in a row that Kyle Wellwood has been hurt with just a few games remaining in the season. The playmaking forward injured his foot with just four games to go in the regular season last year. Coach Claude Noel has yet to name a replacement for Wellwood, but it appears Nik Antropov is the most likely suitor for the ice time.

Kyle Wellwood

Jets' Wellwood: Seven Points In Last Eight Games

News: Kyle Wellwood scored twice Saturday afternoon in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: It's his first two-goal game in over three years (the last was April 1, 2010). April has been kind to this diminutive center -- he has seven points (four goals, three assists) in eight games this month and is plus-5 over that span. He might provide you with a game or two of value, particularly on a match-ups basis.

Jets' Wellwood Extends Point Streak To Five

News: Kyle Wellwood added an assist in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood has two goals and three assists during his current five game point streak and he's got a plus-6 rating over that span as well. Though he's normally not the most consistent player, he's hot and worth a look. Keep him in mind if you feel confident you're going to advance beyond this week in your league's postseason, as the Jets don't play again until next week.

Jets' Wellwood Points In Fourth Straight

News: Kyle Wellwood scored the opening goal of the game in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood's playing with Olli Jokinen and Evander Kane on the Jets' second line and he has two goals and two assists to go with a solid plus-5 rating during his current streak. He's a decent depth addition in deeper leagues for your playoff run as that line combination seems to be working well right now.

Wellwood Gets Assist In Jets Loss

News: Kyle Wellwood had an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Monday night.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood registered a goal and four assists in the month of March, but his career numbers could have predicted that. Truth be told, his finest points-per-game average (22 points in 31 games) comes in the month of April. That's no serious indication his value will rise, but it's worth keeping an eye on as the Jets look to gain steam in the final month of the regular season.

Jets' Wellwood A Healthy Scratch Friday

News: Kyle Wellwood will be a healthy scratch Friday against the Lightning.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood has averaged more than 12 minutes in his six games this season, but he'll be in the press box Friday, replaced in the lineup by Mark Scheifele.

Kyle Wellwood

Wiebe Signs With Winnipeg

News: Kyle Wellwood signed a one-year, $1.6 million deal with Winnipeg on Friday, TSN.ca's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood is largely inconsistent from year to year, but if he can repeat his 2011 showing, he might have some fantasy utility in some leagues this year after totaling 47 points (18 goals) in 77 games.

Kyle Wellwood

Jets' Wellwood Done For Season

News: Kyle Wellwood has a broken foot and will not play any more games this season, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: With the Jets out of the playoffs, Kyle Wellwood should have plenty of time to heal up for next season, though a broken foot will surely set back his offseason training program. He'll finish 2011-12 with his best season, putting up a career-high 47 points, 10 of which came on the power play. Somehow he found a way to score 18 goals while just taking 93 shots all season.

Winnipeg's Wellwood (Undisclosed) In Question For Tuesday

News: Kyle Wellwood missed Monday's morning skate, though no official word on what might be ailing the veteran forward has been made available, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. In possibly related news, the Jets have recalled Patrice Cormier from the St. John's Ice Caps.
Analysis: An absent Kyle Wellwood and a last minute call-up from the farm team would suggest that the Ontario native will sit out Tuesday's contest in Florida. Utilize another option in his stead if at all possible.

Kyle Wellwood

Another Goal For Jets' Wellwood

News: Kyle Wellwood extended his recent hot streak Saturday night against the Lightning, securing his sixth point of Winnipeg's last four games by netting his 18th goal on the year.
Analysis: One now cannot help but wonder if Kyle Wellwood was dealing with some sort of minor injury throughout the middle of March, small enough that the veteran could still play, but significant enough to impact his performance. The soon-to-be free agent registered only one point in seven games from 3/9 through 3/24, but has now racked up six in that column since 3/26.

Two Points For Jets' Wellwood

News: Kyle Wellwood reached 46 points in 2011-2012 Friday night with a goal and an assist versus Carolina. The former Shark has five points in his last three games.
Analysis: Now with a real chance to hit 50 points for the first time in his career, Kyle Wellwood has been a steady though unspectacular performer in "the 'peg" this season.

Jets' Wellwood Snaps Dry Spell Versus Sens

News: Kyle Wellwood put an end to a five-game points draught Monday night by recording two assists and a goal against visiting Ottawa.
Analysis: Though Kyle Wellwood is among the club's top six forwards, the eight-year veteran is at or near the very bottom of that grouping. Do not totally count him out to collect you a handful of points down the stretch, however, as the Jets will now pull out all the stops and rely on proven commodities to secure an improbable playoff berth. There is slim but very real upside in owning a player like Wellwood.

Winnipeg's Wellwood Reaches 15 Goals

News: Kyle Wellwood buried one of two Winnipeg goals in Thursday night's loss at Vancouver, giving the veteran 15 scores on the year and three in his last four outings.
Analysis: As Kyle Wellwood's line-mate Evander Kane continues to ride a fearsome hot streak, opportunities for points abound for the Ontario native in his eighth season.

Two Points For Jets' Wellwood

News: Kyle Wellwood picked up his 14th goal and 25th assist of the season Thursday night as the Jets blanked the Panthers, 7-0.
Analysis: Though he does not have quite the same fantasy allure of a Blake Wheeler or Evander Kane, Kyle Wellwood has been a steady contributor for Winnipeg this season. The second line forward rarely misses time and often benefits from skating alongside the aforementioned Kane. In deeper leagues he makes for a decent value play.

Winnipeg's Wellwood Scores 13th Of Season

News: Kyle Wellwood notched one of three Jets goals in Monday night's home loss to the Oilers, giving the eighth-year veteran 13 on the season.
Analysis: The subject of several trade deadline rumors, Kyle Wellwood made it through the day without being shipped off to another club. Monday's score was Wellwood's first point in four games however, a skid that does not inspire much confidence in the Ontario native moving forward.

Jets' Wellwood Notches Goal, Assist Versus Colorado

News: Kyle Wellwood found his 12th goal and 24th assist of the season Sunday night as the Jets pounded the Avalanche 5-1 at the MTS Centre.
Analysis: Sunday's outing makes five points for Kyle Wellwood in his last five contests. While he may not produce at the same pace as Jets stars Blake Wheeler or Evander Kane, the veteran forward is very much a valuable piece in a fantasy-friendly situation.

Jets' Wellwood To Return Saturday

News: Kyle Wellwood, who has missed the Jets' last two games due to illness, will return to the lineup Saturday against the Penguins, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood will slot in on the second line with Evander Kane and Nik Antropov.

Jets' Wellwood Still Under The Weather

News: Kyle Wellwood (flu) will miss Thursday's game against the Caps, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: As a result, Eric Fehr will once again take Kyle Wellwood's place on a line with Nik Antropov and Evander Kane. Consider Wellwood day-to-day heading into Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

Jets' Wellwood Nets Game-Winner in OT

News: Kyle Wellwood scored the game-winning goal in overtime Thursday night versus the Lightning, lifting the Jets to a 2-1 victory over their division rivals.
Analysis: The goal was Kyle Wellwood's tenth on the season, and it brings him to 31 total points. Despite all the re-shuffling of Winnipeg's offensive lines in light of their recent injury woes, head coach Claude Noel has made sure to keep Wellwood in with the club's top six forwards. He is a serviceable fantasy choice.

Winnipeg's Wellwood Snaps Scoring Draught

News: Kyle Wellwood was the only Jet to score in Winnipeg's 2-1 loss to Carolina on Monday night. It was the veteran's ninth goal of the year and his first since December 17.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood's points streak now stands at an impressive seven in his last five games. With fellow Jets Evander Kane and Tim Stapleton out for at least the next game or two with injuries, Wellwood is in line to continue seeing significant ice time totals and scoring opportunities.

Jets' Wellwood Records Multiple Assists For Second Straight

News: Kyle Wellwood notched his 20th and 21st assists on the season in Saturday night's loss to Florida. The veteran forward has six points in his last four games.
Analysis: Kyle Wellwood's offensive production had been dreadfully slow since the Christmas holiday, but lately the Ontario native has been in on a majority of Jets goals. Injuries have forced head coach Claude Noel to re-shuffle Winnipeg's forward combinations nearly every game, but Wellwood is making it work no matter who he skates with.

Jets' Wellwood Finds 18th, 19th Assists Of Season

News: Kyle Wellwood recorded his third and fourth points of Winnipeg's last three games Thursday, feeding assists to Andrew Ladd and Nik Antropov.
Analysis: The Ladd-Antropov-Kyle Wellwood offensive unit certainly hit its stride Thursday night, totaling six points amongst the three of them. Wellwood finds himself in a good fantasy situation and appears to be firing on all cylinders.
