Scott92 Posted October 17, 2008 Report Share Posted October 17, 2008 Canucks place center Kyle Wellwood on waivers Kyle Wellwood is on waivers, having failed to impress the Vancouver Canucks. Once a prospect in the Toronto Maple Leafs, Wellwood, 25, was waived by that organization over the summer. He got a one-year, $997,500 deal with the Canucks this offseason in hopes he could help bolster their forward corps. Wellwood is a center. However, he found himself out of favor after reporting to training camp out of shape. "His commitment to conditioning and being a professional athlete probably wasn't where it needed to be for him to have success," Canucks coach Alain Vigneault told Canwest News Service in training camp in September. Wellwood played one game with the Canucks and didn't get a point. Part of Wellwood's problem is a two-year bout with a hernia and a broken foot from playing summer soccer. If he clears waivers, Wellwood would be assigned to the Canucks' AHL Manitoba affiliate. Click link to view article. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
