Winnipeg Jets claim defenceman Keaton Ellerby off waivers

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have claimed defenceman Keaton Ellerby off waivers.

Ellerby was placed on waivers by the Los Angeles Kings on Friday.

The 24-year-old has 20 career points and 86 career penalty minutes in 160 NHL games with the Florida Panthers and the Kings. He has also appeared in six NHL playoff games, collecting two penalty minutes.

The Strathmore, Alta., native was originally drafted by the Panthers in the first round, 10th overall, of the 2007 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
