Panthers Sign D Keaton Ellerby
SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has signed D Keaton Ellerby to a one-year, one-way contract.
 
“Keaton is a young, mobile and strong defenseman who we are pleased to have back next season,” said Tallon. “He is one of our organization’s former first round picks and we look forward to his continued growth and development as an NHL defenseman.”
 
Ellerby, 22, played in 54 games with the Panthers this season scoring two goals with 10 assists, while averaging 16:05 in ice time. The Strathmore, Alberta native recorded his first career NHL goal on Jan. 25 at the New York Rangers and first career points (two assists) on Oct. 23 vs. the New York Islanders. For his career in the NHL, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound defenseman has played in 76 games, all with Florida, registering 12 points (2-10-12) and 24 PIM.
 
Ellerby was drafted by Florida with its first choice (No. 10 overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.  He becomes the fourth player signed by Florida in April joining F John McFarland (Apr. 21), Quinton Howden (Apr. 6) and D Alex Petrovic (Apr. 18).
