Ellerby is a defenseman with great size, who does his best work in his own zone. Skates and moves very well, despite a large body. Somewhat lacking in hockey sense, and won't contribute much offensively. Could stand to play a more physical game, given his excellent frame, but still delivers a big hit once in a while. - Erik K.
