Eric Wellwood (born March 6, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He is the younger brother of Kyle Wellwood.
Wellwood was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth round (172nd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a three-year entry level contract with the Flyers on March 4, 2010 after playing four seasons of junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires, with whom he helped win two straight Memorial Cup championships in 2009 and 2010. Wellwood was called up from the Adirondack Phantoms on November 1, 2010 in the wake of Flyers forward Danny Briere's three-game suspension and made his NHL debut against the Carolina Hurricanes on a line with James van Riemsdyk and Mike Richards. Wellwood recorded his first NHL point on November 6 against the New York Islanders, assisting on Andreas Nodl's game winning goal at 14:35 of the third period. During the 2010-11 NHL playoffs, the Flyers called up Wellwood and a few other players, but he did not dress for a game.
