Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Ellerby was drafted 10th overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft from the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. During the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championship, Ellerby was invited to try out for the tournament, having played for Canada at the 2007 Superseries against the Russians, but was cut from the roster.

Professional[edit]

Ellerby scored his first NHL goal on January 25, 2011 against Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.[1]

During the 2012–13 season, on February 8, 2013, Ellerby was traded by the Panthers to the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.[2]

On July 4, 2013, the Kings announced they re-signed Ellerby to a one-year deal.[3] A month into the 2013–14 season, on November 2, 2013 he was claimed off waivers by the Winnipeg Jets.[4]

Family[edit]

Ellerby is first cousins with Shane Doan, captain of the Phoenix Coyotes, and second cousin to Carey Price, goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens.[citation needed]
