Jets claim defenseman Ellerby off waivers

The Winnipeg Jets claimed defenseman Keaton Ellerby off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Ellerby, 24, will join a Jets blue line that is missing injured regulars Mark Stuart (hip), Jacob Trouba (neck) and Paul Postma (blood clot). Earlier this week, Winnipeg recalled defensemen Ben Chiarot and Julian Melchiori from the St. John’s IceCaps, their American Hockey League...

Kings Roster Moves by   Jack Weber

The Kings made some moves today, placing Keaton Ellerby on waivers, Jeff Carter on injured reserve, and calling up forwards Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey from their AHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs. As for the Ellerby move, it’s hardly surprising, and it makes sense. Ellerby’s an expendable player, one who was only re-signed as insurance and a little more depth [...]

Carter to IR, Ellerby Waived, Toffoli and Vey Called Up

We posted earlier in the week about a roster move coming on the horizon and that Ellerby could be waived if the Kings couldn't find a suitable trade. It looks like that was the case. No word yet on the severity of the injury Jeff Carter sustained or how much time he'll miss. Having Carter out of the roster will be a big blow for a Kings team that has struggled to score goals...

The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms on a new one-year contract with defenseman Keaton Ellerby.

Kings defenseman Ellerby adjusts to the West

The Kings acquired defenseman Keaton Ellerby from the Florida Panthers on Feb. 8 almost out of desperation, after they had lost defensemen Matt Greene (back surgery) and Willie Mitchell (knee surgery) for extended periods of time and before they lost Alec Martinez to an upper-body injury. Martinez missed eight games and is scheduled to play Monday against Nashville, the first of...

Eklund: D-man Yardsale: Here Are 5 Readily Available Notables

It's no secret that teams around the NHL are looking to add some depth to their bluelines but except when there are bargains out there (such as Florida dumping off the once highly-touted Keaton Ellerby), the prices have been a bit too inflated for teams to pull the trigger. It has been crazy just have many NHL teams have been scouring other teams rosters and inquiring about...

Defenseman Ellerby adjusts with the Kings

Defenseman Keaton Ellerby grew up in Western Canada and had played his entire NHL career in the Eastern Conference with the Florida Panthers. Needless to say, an adjustment period will be required for the newest King. Ellerby was traded Friday and made his Kings debut on Sunday afternoon in a 3-2 loss at Detroit. The Western Conference and the Eastern Conference is just completely...

Kings acquire Keaton Ellerby from Panthers

NASHVILLE The Kings essentially used a position of strength to try to shore up a position of recent weakness. To do so, it took a two-step process in the last three days. On Friday, they acquired 6-foot-5 defenseman Keaton Ellerby from the Florida Panthers. They sent a fifth-round draft pick to the Panthers, which was the piece they got from the New Jersey Devils for prospect and...

Eklund: Six years later, LA Takes a Flier on Ellerby

Hockey is a funny little world sometimes. Back before the 2007 Draft, the consensus top two defense prospects were Karl Alzner and Keaton Ellerby. After the top three picks (as expected) were forwards Patrick Kane, James van Riemsdyk and Kyle Turris, the Los Angeles Kings had the fourth overall pick of the Draft. LA did indeed pick a defenseman, but it was neither of the expected...

Dan Spiegel: Keaton Ellerby: Does Tallon Keep Him Or Let Him Go?

Is this RFA that was the 2007 10th overall pick a bust or just a victim of a numbers game? In 117 NHL games he has 2 goals and 15 assists and is -19. While he hasn't shown much offensively, he has shown flashes of being very responsible at both ends of the ice. He is a good skater with average puck handling ability, but in all fairness has not been given a true chance to...
