Ryan Ellis, Nashville Predators
This month’s player spotlight is on Nashville Predators’ defensemen Ryan Ellis. At the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, the Hamilton, Ontario native was selected 11th overall by the Nashville Predators. Now in his 8th NHL season, the reliable defenseman sits fifth in the NHL in total time on-ice. Before becoming an NHL star, Ryan put together one of the greatest junior careers of all time. Ryan still holds the record for the most points by a defenseman in the World Junior Championships (25 in 19 games) and has been ranked number 7 by TSN on the list of all-time greatest Canadian World Junior players. Check out this hilarious commercial sharing some of Ryan’s methods for managing money.
