Defenseman Keaton Ellerby has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets worth $700,000, the team announced Thursday.
Ellerby, 25, was a first-round pick (No. 10) of the Florida Panthers in the 2007 NHL Draft and had two goals and six points last season in 51 games with the Jets, who claimed him off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Nov. 2.
In 211 NHL games with the Jets, Kings and Panthers, he has four goals and 26 points.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
