January 2024 – So far, this season has been significantly better for Ellis compared to the last one. His 2.45 goals-against average and 92.3% save percentage in 21 ECHL games rank him second and first, respectively, among goalies with at least 20 games played. Such impressive stats have earned him a call-up to the AHL, where he has played only one game thus far. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte
June 2023 – Ellis had a tough season last year. After not making the cut for the AHL, he struggled in a 1A/1B setting with the Tulsa Oilers. Ellis’ path to the NHL is increasingly challenging with Zherenko’s arrival in North America and Hofer’s recent performance. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte
June 2022 – In his first professional season, Ellis showed real progress. He played most of the season with the Worcester Railers of the ECHL, playing the most games of any U-22 goalie in the league with 34. He ranked seventh amongst U-22 goalies with a .905% save percentage. If things shake right with the likely departure of Ville Husso, Ellis should be in line to play more games in the AHL next season, possibly even securing a full-time spot. Gordon Munro
June 2019 – Ellis’ .910 save percentage was fifth among goaltenders that played more than 30 games in the QMJHL this year. He was one of the pillars on Oceanic Rimouski, along with Alexis Lafreniere, that helped them finish with 92 points in the standings. Ellis would raise his game in the playoffs recording a .919 save percentage, which was third-best in the QMJHL. Sam Stern
