Andy Welinski, D

Shoots: R

Height: 6-0

Weight: 180

Born: 1993-04-27

Hometown: Duluth, MN

Drafted: 2011 by Anaheim, 83rd overall








March, 2013 - Is adapting well to the NCAA game....Second on the team among defensemen for scoring (Univ. Minnesota-Duluth)..At this point, playing at least two more years of NCAA hockey is in his best interest. - Dobber



March, 2012 – One of the younger players taken in last year’s draft, Welinski is strictly an offensive defenseman at this point. He has good offensive instincts, an accurate shot, and loves to join the rush.  He had 15 goals and 33 points in the USHL this season, and will play for Scott Sandelin at the University of Minnesota-Duluth next year.


Fantasy Outlook: C+

Welinski needs to gain a lot of strength and improve his defense acumen to play in the NHL. If he makes it in a few years, he will quarterback a power-play.
