Wellwood Back for Another Season… at $1.2 million

wellwood yay

While Wellwood’s salary/term has yet to be figured out, in an interview with the TEAM 1040, Wellwood’s agent said that he would be back in Vancouver. Apparently Wellwood’s demands were not high enough for the Canucks to walk away from.

So what’s next? This now gives the team 10-11 top 9 forwards (assuming that Cody Hodgson and/or Michael Grabner are ready for prime time). I’m expecting a trade for a defenseman before training camp. Stay tuned…

***UPDATE*** Wellwood’s arbitration case has been settled. TSN is reporting that Wellwood has been awarded a one-year deal worth $1.2 million. Great deal for the Canucks. Good in the shootout, good on the power play, good on faceoffs, and as he proved in the playoffs, good defensively. He provides a lot of intangibles, and still has a lot of upside.
