The team announced the move Monday, a few hours before its game at Montreal.
Ellis had been out since suffering a cut near his left knee in the final minute of a loss to New Jersey on March 21.
He was brought in during the off-season to back up Cam Ward, an All-Star who will be out at least two more weeks with a sprained left knee.
Ellis was 4-5 with a goals-against average of 2.65 when he was hurt.
