Welinski signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Flyers on Monday. Welinski split time between the AHL and NHL in 2018-19, notching four points in 26 games with the Ducks while adding 19 points in 27 minor-league appearances. The 26-year-old will likely have a similar role with Philadelphia during the upcoming campaign, so he can safely be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Anaheim reassigned Welinski to AHL San Diego on Friday. The Ducks will play their final game of the season Friday against LA, so there's no reason for them to keep a depth defenseman like Welinksi on their roster. The 25-year-old will now set his sights on helping San Diego secure a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs.
Welinski posted the first goal of his NHL career in a 6-1 loss to the Flames on Friday. The score actually put the Ducks ahead early, but the Flames then posted six unanswered goals. Welinski will help owners most in the hits category, but he does have two points in the past three games. The 25-year-old has one goal and four points in 24 NHL games this season.
The Ducks recalled Welinski from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, NHL.com's Dan Arritt reports. Jacob Larsson is considered day-to-day with a thigh bruise, so Welinski will draw into the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Winnipeg. The 25-year-old has notched two assists in 19 appearances with the big club this season.
Welinski was sent down to AHL San Diego on Sunday. Welinski was originally recalled due to Korbinian Holzer (personal) leaving the team, but now that the latter has returned, Welinski was sent back down. The 25-year-old has two assists in 19 games for Anaheim this campaign.
