Nashville Predators Nashville Predators 2009 - present

Ryan Ellis is a Canadian defenseman on the Nashville Predators.

Ellis was drafted by the Predators with the 11th overall pick in 2009. He played his junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL, where he was the team’s top defenseman for a number of seasons. In his rookie season, he scored 15 goals and 63 points for the Spitfires, but would increase his point totals to 22-67-89 in 2008-09. His 89 points were good enough to finish as the league’s 7th highest scorer, and he won the award for top defenseman in the league. Despite his small size (5’9, 173 lbs.), Ellis is known for being one of the smartest players on the ice, and his strong puck-moving abilities.

Ellis won four gold medals with Team Canada, most recently at the 2009 World Juniors.
