More Info
TRADED TO NHL BOSTON BRUINS AS PART OF DEAL FOR WILD TO ACQUIRE CHUCK KOBASEW IN OCTOBER 2009.

Craig Weller, aka “Wellsy”, was born on March 17, 1981 and hails from Calgary, Alberta. This is where he and his wife, Jen, call home today. They live in Calgary during the summers along with Roxy, a friendly household cat. You can catch Craig Weller during the off-season either fishing, practicing his archery skills, or picking out a tune on the guitar along the lines of his favorite musical artist, Brad Paisley.

But enough about Weller’s off-season life! Let’s get to the hockey news!

Craig Weller has appeared in 59 career NHL games to date. His Minnesota roots run deep due to a stint with the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2000. That same year, Wellsy entered the NHL draft and was picked by St. Louis as a 5th round choice or 167th overall. However, he spent more time in the AHL with the Hartford Wolf Pack than he did with St. Louis. This didn’t put Craig Weller off for long, though, and he even became team captain from 2005-2007. On October 25, 2007 he scored his first NHL goal against the Ahanheim Ducks and this turned out to be the game winning goal—a high point of his career at that point.

In 2008, Craig Weller was signed as a free agent to the Minnesota Wild. His contract was set for two years and $1.2 million. However, he played very briefly, making just one goal and two assists. Are the Minnesota Wild getting their money out of Craig Weller? Is Craig Weller happy with the Wild? We’ll have to see how the new coaching staff works with Weller and if he’ll see more playing time in the future.
