NHL Note - Nashville Predators Ellis, Ryan

Sep 8, 2017 - 8:19 AM D Ryan Ellis could be out of action until January, according to the Predators' website. The report indicated he will miss four to six months, and he isn't expected back until around Jan. 1.

Ellis was a workhorse during the Predators run to the Stanley Cup Final, but left Game 5 with an undisclosed injury. He returned for Game 6, but was obviously playing on a hobbled right knee. The 26-year-old recorded a career-high 16 goals and 38 points last season, averaging just under 24 minutes per-game. Ellis was tied for third on the Predators and led all of their defensemen with 13 playoff points. He led Nashville in the postseason with two power-play goals.
