Video: Flyers’ Wellwood talks, reveals gruesome skate cut

May 23, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

In early April, Philadelphia Flyers forward Eric Wellwood suffered a severe skate laceration to his ankle during an AHL game, one that sliced tendons and cut an artery in his calf, resulting in a “skate filled with blood,” according to the Glen Falls Post Star.

So, wanna see what the aftermath looks like?

Flyers TV caught up with Wellwood, who recently got the cast off his ankle.

Warning: It’s kind of gross.

    Almost too busy staring at the scar to notice just how much his calf has atrophied from not being in use.

    Was he playing for the Flyer’s AHL affilate, or did the league decide that the actual Flyers team should be demoted to the AHL?

    This is the one time I was glad videos don’t work on mobile devices.

    It’s a relief to see he’s doing alright, especially with such a strange and usually career ending injury.

    Still no videos on mobile devices….
    Get your act together NBC. This is not new technology.
    I wonder if the Fox Sports mobile app supports videos…..
