  • Ellis stuck around for morning skate Thursday for the first time since undergoing a procedure on his knee in June, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Ellis' timetable hasn't been pushed up to this point, but it's certainly an encouraging sign and a step in the right direction in his recovery. The blueliner has been sorely missed in the early portions of the 2017-18 campaign, but he is expected to rejoin the fold at some point in January.

  • Predators' Ryan Ellis: Out until January

    Ellis (knee) will miss the first half of the season and is not expected back until January, according to general manager David Poile. If any team could weather the storm of losing one of its top-pairing defensemen, it's Nashville. While replacing Ellis' 16 goals and 22 assists is no easy task, the Preds still have Roman Josi, P.K. Subban, Mattias Ekholm and new addition Alexei Emelin. Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the 26-year-old Ontarian's absence is Alexandre Carrier, who could earn a spot on the 23-man roster out of training camp.

  • Predators' Ryan Ellis: Recovering from knee surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellis recently underwent knee surgery and GM David Poile is hopeful that the defenseman will be prepared for training camp. The prolific two-way rearguard sustained an upper-body injury against the Penguins during the Stanley Cup Finals, but there hadn't been any talk of a knee issue for Ellis, therefore, we shouldn't assume the two ailments are related. Provided he makes a full recovery, fantasy owners should still feel confident drafting the burgeoning defenseman, as he's coming off a career year (38 points in 71 games) and his average ice time rose for the third consecutive season -- all the way to 23:57 in 2016-17.

  • Predators' Ryan Ellis: Confirmed for Game 6
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellis (upper body) is in the lineup for Game 6 against Pittsburgh on Sunday, Kevin Allen of USA Today reports. In case there was any doubt left, the Preds' rearguard is, indeed, good to go for Sunday's elimination game. Ellis only played 10:44 in Game 5 before departing, but he's chosen to tough out whatever injury he's dealing with to try to help the team stave off elimination and force a deciding Game 7 back in Pittsburgh. He's slated to skate on the top defensive pairing and power-play unit, though both of those assignments could change based on his health.

  • Predators' Ryan Ellis: Likely to play Game 6
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellis (upper body) took rushes on the top defensive pairing with Roman Josi during Sunday's pregame warmups, meaning he will likely play Game 6 against the Penguins. There is still a chance that Ellis could be scratched at the last moment and we will be sure to update his status if he is, but with the Predators' season and a chance at the Stanley Cup on the line, it seems as though he'll gut it out Sunday. Ellis will look to pick up his game after posting two points and a minus-2 rating in the first five games of the series.
