Stefan Elliott (born January 30, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently with the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Elliott first played junior hockey with the Vancouver North West Giants in the BC Major Midget League, before moving on the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League. In his first full season with the Blades in 2007–08, Elliott led the defense with 31 assists and 40 points.

In the following 2008–09 season, Elliott's offensive prowess improved to again lead the Blades defense with 15 goals and 55 points. Elliott's intelligence on ice was matched off ice as he was awarded the WHL's and the CHL's Scholastic Player of the Year award.[1] Eligible for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, he was selected in the second round, 49th overall, by the Colorado Avalanche.

On March 21, 2011, Elliott was signed by the Avalanche to a three-year entry level contract.[2] On April 16, 2011, Elliott was assigned to join the playoff run of the Avalanche's American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters, on an amateur tryout. In his first full professional season in 2011–12 Elliot was recalled from the Monsters by the Avalanche on November 25, 2011. The following day on November 26, 2011, Elliott scored his first goal in his NHL debut against Devan Dubnyk of the Edmonton Oilers, which proved to be the game winner.[3]
