Wellwood News? Wellwood News.

Or at least the closest thing to Wellwood news. Elliot Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada has reported that the Phoenix Coyotes have invited Kyle to try out at their camp. The news originally broke on the Coyotes.com Desert Dog blog. Also on the Coyotes.com frontpage: a Taylor Pyatt gallery. The Coyotes know what the ladies like.

Desert Dog blogger, Dave Vest, got a quote from GM Don Maloney on Wellwood:
He’s a clever, creative player who’s a little bit intriguing. We were weak on the power play last year and he’s a smart player who could help us there so we’ll give him every opportunity to come in here and win a job.
The Coyotes have made a habit of collecting former Canucks, and have done well with the NHL's "castoffs." We here at Pass it To Bulis wish Kyle all the best and hopefully by the end of the month, we'll have a more substantive update in our regular Wellwood's World feature that will include him signing a contract with the Coyotes.


  1. Excellent. I remember when Vancouver first picked Kyle Wellwood on waivers, he was supposed to be an NHL reject, but despite his weirdness, he worked hard and ultimately earned a spot. He adapted to a checking role and turned into a bit of a rocky success story sticking with the team. It'd be sad to see all that disregarded by the NHL collective.

  2. Finally, somebody is giving Kyle Wellwood a shot!

    Not a literal shot, of course. His tiny stick can't muster much force.

  3. The Coyotes have made a habit of collecting former Canucks. Not just Pyatt, Aucoin and Jovo. What about Jason Labarbera and an aging Mathieu Schneider? Practically half their team is former Canucks. If they ever go back to Winnipeg that would be interesting.
