Kyle Wellwood suffered a long-term hand injury Monday night, which will likely end his season.

He blocked a shot from Thomas Vanek in the second period and returned to finish the stanza, but didn't play in the third. Nik Antropov is projected to be available to play and take Wellwood's place in the lineup.

Kyle Wellwood scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Florida.

Andrew Ladd and Ron Hainsey assisted on Winnipeg's only score of the game. Wellwood had been a healthy scratch for the Jets lately, so getting a goal should keep him in the lineup.

Kyle Wellwood did some work on a line with Jim Slater and Eric Tangradi during Monday's practice session.

The moved suggests he might return to the lineup Tuesday night. Wellwood has two assists in 15 games this season and he hasn't played since Feb. 23.

Kyle Wellwood was a healthy scratch for the Jets on Tuesday during the team's first victory of the 2013 campaign.

He opened the year on the top line with Olli Jokinen and Evander Kane, but that spot went to Blake Wheeler for Tuesday's contest and his lineup spot went to waiver claim pickup James Wright. "I thought Kyle was good in the game, good in both games, it's just that you play heavy games and he looked tired and looked a little slower, we wanted some activity against the forecheck," said coach Claude Noel. "Against Washington, we wanted to utilize a little bit more speed in the game and throughout the lineup." Wellwood's fitness has come into question before, but it doesn't sound like Noel was trying to send a message to the shifty forward.

Kyle Wellwood has been practicing on the Jets top line with Olli Jokinen and Evander Kane for the early portion of training camp.

"I'm amazed how smart he is, the hockey sense he's got," Jokinen said of Wellwood. "He can play with any player and make any player better. He's such a great little player. I'm amazed how good he is in these two days I've seen him." He compared Wellwood to his former Florida teammate Josef Stumpl and Kane drew lofty comparisons to Calgary's Jarome Iginla. "He's got good wheels, he's got an unbelievable wrist shot, he loves to score goals and he's a shoot-first guy," Jokinen said of Kane. "He's the type of player that Iggy was in Calgary, too." The trio may stay together to open the year, but it's not set in stone yet.

The Sabres may be looking for a second or third tier center during Sunday's free agent signing frenzy.

Kyle Wellwood is a name that has been mentioned as has former Buffalo player Dominic Moore. However if the Sabres are going to be players on Sunday it is more likely they would chase after a bigger bodied pivot such as Olli Jokinen or Jason Arnott. We will watch with interest.

With time ticking down to July 1st it is not clear if the Jets plan on re-signing Kyle Wellwood to a contract before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Wellwood had a surprisingly effective 2011-12 campaign with 47 points but the Jets want to get bigger up front and the 5'10" 180 pound Wellwood is not much of a physical presence on the ice. Stay tuned.

Kyle Wellwood broke his left foot during Saturday's game.

With so little time left in the season, that means that Wellwood's 2011-12 campaign is over. He had 18 goals and 47 points in 77 games this season.

Kyle Wellwood potted a goal in a 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night.

After recently snapping a seven-game goalless drought, Kyle Wellwood scored the Jets first goal of the hockey game on Saturday night. Credit Wellwood for his determination not to quit even though the Jets are falling out of the playoff picture.

Kyle Wellwood snapped a seven-game goalless drought and a five-game pointless spree with a goal and two assists in Monday's 6-4 loss to Ottawa.

He had a chance to add his 17th goal of the year to his totals as well, but was denied on a penalty shot when he ran out of real estate at the side of the goal. Wellwood has had an up-and-down year with the Jets in 2011-12, but he is one point away from matching his career-high of 45 and two goals from equaling his personal best of 18.

Kyle Wellwood was back in action against the Flyers Saturday night.

He missed Thursday's game due to the flu but seemed fine against Philly as he scored a goal in 15:40 of playing time. Wellwood, who has been a pleasant surprise this season, is now safe to activate.

Kyle Wellwood did not travel with his teammates because of the flu.

He isn't expected to play on Thursday night against Washington and he missed Tuesday's win over Toronto as well with the illness. The Jets will play in Pittsburgh Saturday. Wellwood has recorded 10 goals and 21 assists in 54 games, but he won't bring much else to the table in other categories so his fantasy value is very limited.
