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.
I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
