Predators’ Ryan Ellis: Contract extension should come soon

Ellis‘ camp is actively involved in contract negotiations with the Predators regarding an extension, Brooks Bratten of the Predators’ official site reports.

Predators GM David Poile added, “Ryan just got married, so we’d like to give him a gift.” Ellis’ presence in Nashville over the past seven years has been a present for the Western Conference club. The industrious two-way rearguard has accumulated 55 goals, 118 assists and a plus-76 rating to complement heavy defensive totals — including a plus-76 rating, 302 hits and 558 blocked shots — over 396 career NHL contests. An alternate captain, Ellis will certainly command a big payday after securing $2.5 million AAV over a five-year deal that he procured in October of 2014.
