From the Democrat and Chronicle:
"He reminds me of Jay Bouwmeester," Amerks veteran winger Karl Stewart said of Ellerby. "He's such a smooth skater, and when he gets the puck from underneath the goal line and just starts to carry it, he can do whatever he wants with it."
Words we've heard many times through the years in describing Jay. Make no mistake, it's not a comparison, just a similarity. I for one can't wait to see Ellerby in his second training camp; almost no way he doesn't make it to the big club. Now with a year of pro experience, he's a big man, a top-ten draft pick with serious talent, who's cheap.
Gotta figure Boynton and Bouwmeester are out in any case.
