RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Morgan Ellis.
Ellis skated for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL in 2012-13, his first professional season. The rookie led all Bulldogs defenseman with 71 games played and had four goals and four assists. The native of Prince Edward Island used the ample playing time he received in 2012-13 to develop the finer aspects of defending -- like limiting the time and space for opponents, and engaging them physically in his own zone. He's not as offensive-minded as his statistics at the junior level might suggest, but Ellis has developed into a nice two-way defender. His calm demeanor and leadership are traits teams look for in their prospects. He'll likely spend another full season at Hamilton.
