KEEP AN EYE ON ...

42 KYLE WELLWOOD C

AGE: 22 HT: 5-foot-10 WT: 180 lbs.

2005-06 STATS: 57 GP 9 G 23 A 32 Pts 6 Pims

THE SKINNY: Going into last night's game against the Sabres in Buffalo, Wellwood was the Leafs' top rookie scorer, one point ahead of Alex Steen ... He has six penalty minutes this year, which is a lot for him. He went a couple of years without a single penalty minute in the Ontario Hockey League with the Windsor Spitfires ... Goes by the nickname of "Frodo" for his resemblance to a certain hobbit in the Lord of The Rings movies ... Still looking for his first game-winning goal ... He was the Leafs' sixth choice (134th overall) in the 2001 draft.

NOTEWORTHY

Senators GM John Muckler said he expects rookie F Patrick Eaves to play tonight. Eaves suffered a leg injury Thursday on a hit by Capitals D Brendan Witt ... Muckler said he also expects enforcer Brian McGrattan, a healthy scratch for the last two games, to be back in the lineup for the latest installment of the Battle of Ontario. If that's the case, then either Eaves will be rested or defenceman-turned-forward Christoph Schubert will be given the night off ... The Senators have won all six meetings between the two clubs this season, the last four by a combined score of 27-5 ... The Senators power play is 5-for-10 in wins over the Penguins and Capitals the last two games ... Leafs tough guy Tie Domi will be honoured before the game tonight for playing in his 1,000th game last night in Buffalo.
