Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun,
Wellwood isn’t exactly pacing the floor of his Windsor, Ont., home, but he does wish that when the phone rings it would be his agent calling, not a reporter.
“I’m just waiting for a call from my agent,” Wellwood said Wednesday. “Still waiting. It’s definitely always stressful, I guess, trying to stay in the NHL. It’s something I have grown accustomed to and this is just part of the job.”
Wellwood’s agent is former goalie Mike Liut, who also represents former Canucks defenceman Willie Mitchell. And while Mitchell, now apparently fully recovered from the concussion he suffered way back in mid-January, is getting plenty of NHL auditions, Wellwood has received little interest.
“You never know how the off-season can shake out,” Wellwood said. “Certainly I was hopeful in July that somebody would show interest in me. But that didn’t really happen.”
