    What happened to Eric after his injury? Haven't seen any talk on him this year, nor do I see him listed on the Phantoms.

    He's not listed on capgeek for us when Pronger & Bourdon are.

    Edit: His status on his profile on there says unsigned/inactive.

    He signed a minor league contract during the summer. He was tendered a QO, the Flyers hold his NHL rights. He has to sign a contract prior to December 1 to be eligible to play in the NHL this season.

    I think the Flyers are doing him a solid. If he's cut lose, the guys on his own to recover. This way he has the help of a professional team. This is pretty typical of the Flyers.

    Exactly. Even if he doesn't get a contract with the Flyers, it doesn't look like he just fell off the professional hockey map.

    I've always liked Wellwood. He was like a smarter version of Zolnierczyk. Hope he can play again.

    Reckon he would have been useful for us these past few games, much like Rinaldo has been looking decent thanks to his speed; standing out that way from the garbage that has been our forward corps. Though he'd probably be playing in Adirondack.
