About Me

I am the greatest and Wellwood is the greatest. Anyone who disagrees is wrong.

Can the leopard change his spots?

Apparently, if his name is Kyle Wellwood.

Picked up on waivers last June for his pure skill with the puck and on-ice vision, he was a training camp fiasco with his scandalous fitness level. The ex-Spit was a few hours from heading to Russia to play in October after clearing waivers.

But a funny thing happened along the way.

On the eve of today's opening playoff game against the Blues

(10 p.m., Ch. 9), Wellwood has established himself as the centre of a solid third line who is responsible defensively and actually finishes the odd check.

Quite a transition for a one-time OHL scoring machine, not known for his work ethic ethic and a guy who had gone 159 consecutive games without taking a minor penalty.

"This is definitely the most excited I've been about hockey," Wellwood said.

"To be on a playoff team where everybody is a good player and it feels like any contribution you make is considered valuable."
