Ellis (lower body) will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks but won't require surgery, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Ellis was just one game back from a nine-game stint on the shelf when he appeared to have re-aggravate his lower-body injury. Even on the short end of his proposed timeline, the Ontario native figures to miss at least the next 14 games while on injured reserve. In the meantime, Nick Seeler should continue to feature heavily on the blue line.
