Ellerby scored his first NHL goal on January 25, 2011 against Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.[1] During the 2012–13 season, on February 8, 2013, Ellerby was traded by the Panthers to the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.[2] The Kings re-signed Ellerby to a one-year deal in July 2013,[3] but he was claimed off waivers by the Winnipeg Jets a month into the 2013–14 season.[4]

Ellerby signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Jets the following summer, but spent most of the 2014-15 season with their American Hockey League affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps.[5]

On July 7, 2015, Ellerby signed his first contract abroad, agreeing to a one-year deal with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League.[6] After 42 games with the Kazakh-based club, Ellerby sought a release and immediately signed with Swiss team HC Fribourg-Gottéron of the NLA on January 4, 2016. His contract will expire at the end of the 2015-16 season.

International play Edit

In December 2015, he won the Spengler Cup with Team Canada.[7]

Ellerby is first cousins with Shane Doan, captain of the Phoenix Coyotes, and second cousin to Carey Price, goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens.[8] Ellerby's uncle, Alvin Liknes, was a Calgary businessman whose disappearance and murder garnered national attention in 2014.[9]
