Wellwood back under contract

On Wednesday, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren confirmed that left wing Eric Wellwood has signed an AHL contract, keeping him under the organizational umbrella as he recovers from a freak leg injury.

Wellwood has been out of action since suffering a deeply lacerated leg tendon in an early April game against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers -- an injury which was life-threatening due to the amount of blood loss.

We've all seen the picture of the 23-year-old's bloody skate in the aftermath.

Before the season-ending setback, Wellwood totaled nine goals and 17 points in 58 games with the Adirondack Phantoms, also seeing four games with the Flyers.
