Dan Ellis

Panthers Start Ellis On Sunday

News: Dan Ellis is slated to start Sunday's game against the Senators, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Per the report, coach Gerard Gallant indicated that Roberto Luongo is a little sore in the wake of Saturday's game against Montreal and will thus give way to Dan Ellis (who last started on March 17) on Sunday.

Big Second Period Sinks Ellis, Panthers

News: Dan Ellis gave up three goals on 25 shots Tuesday in a loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: All the game's scoring happened in the second period, with Dan Ellis giving up three goals in the frame to opposing netminder Dustin Tokarski's two. With two consecutive losses (though he played well against the Rangers on Sunday), Ellis is starting to experience a bit of a course correction after playing surprisingly well in his first few outings for the Panthers this year.

Panthers Stick With Ellis On Tuesday

News: Dan Ellis is slated to start Tuesday's game against Montreal, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis is thus in line to make his sixth straight start for the Panthers, with Roberto Luongo nearing a return, but still day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the Red Wings.

Panthers' Ellis Solid In Loss

News: Dan Ellis allowed two goals on 34 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: It was Dan Ellis' first regulation loss this season, though it was no fault of his own as he was solid in net against the high-powered Rangers offense. With Roberto Luongo nearing a return from injury, Ellis' run of starts may soon be ending, but he makes for a solid option whenever he gets the nod.

Dan Ellis

Panthers Stick With Ellis On Sunday

News: Dan Ellis is slated to start Sunday's game against the Rangers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis has won three straight starts for the Panthers, including a 2-0 blanking of the Hurricanes on Saturday. He'll take aim Sunday at a Rangers' squad that has reeled off four straight wins, including a 2-0 decision over the Sabres on Saturday.

Panthers' Ellis: 27 Saves In Shutout Win

News: Dan Ellis made 27 saves in a shutout win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night. It was his third straight win and first shutout of the season.
Analysis: He made a couple of big saves to keep his team in the game, particularly in the first when the Canes had 15 shots, including several quality chances. He's a solid play until Roberto Luongo returns from injury.

Panthers To Ride Ellis Again Saturday

News: Dan Ellis will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Roberto Luongo (shoulder) appears to be making progress in his recovery, but he won't be ready to play in advance of Saturday's game, allowing Dan Ellis to pick up his fourth consecutive start. The Panthers aren't ruling out a return for Luongo during Sunday's match with the Rangers, and even if that doesn't materialize, it appears Ellis' run as the No. 1 goalie might be nearing its conclusion. He's held up OK thus far, guiding the Panthers to two wins in his previous three turns while posting a .900 save percentage.

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Ellis, Panthers Come Out On Top

News: Dan Ellis stopped 18 of 20 shots Thursday in a 4-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Decent work by Dan Ellis, which is about all you can ask for. He's surprisingly undefeated in regulation over three starts (2-0-1) with Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya shelved due to injury, though that .900 save mark isn't impressing anyone. Luongo's nearing his return, which will push Ellis to the bench soon, and ultimately the AHL.

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis To Start On Thursday

News: With Roberto Luongo (shoulder) still injured, Dan Ellis is slated to get the start on Thursday against the Jets, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: Both Luongo and Al Montoya (groin) remain unavailable, paving the way for Dan Ellis to draw his third straight start. Through two outings, Ellis is 1-0-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage. A lack of success at the NHL level still makes Ellis a risky play, but he's performed more than admirably in spot duty against quality attacks in the Stars and Islanders.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Perfect In Shootout, Gets Win

News: Dan Ellis stopped 25 shots Saturday in his second start since being recalled from the AHL on Wednesday. He then turned aside all three shots in the shootout for a 4-3 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Dan Ellis will carry the Panther's playoff hopes until Roberto Luongo returns from injury. The team is motivated, so check your wire and stash him if he's still out there. He might deliver some much needed help to your fantasy squad.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Set To Make Another Turn In Net

News: Dan Ellis will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis made his season debut with the Panthers in Thursday's shootout loss to the Stars, allowing three goals on 32 shots -- two of which came on deflections. The respectable outing will be enough to earn Ellis another nod Saturday while Roberto Luongo (shoulder) and Al Montoya (groin) are unavailable. Ellis likely won't have a grip on the No. 1 job for long, however, as Luongo's injury is believed to be only a short-term concern.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Takes Shootout Loss In Debut

News: Dan Ellis, making his season debut, let in three goals on 32 shots and ended up with a shootout loss Thursday against Dallas.
Analysis: Dan Ellis, who was drafted by the Stars in 2000 and started 11 games for them last year, at least posted a save mark over .900 and got the Panthers to the shootout, which is more than you could reasonably expect from a guy who hasn't even put up good numbers in the AHL this year and was an unmitigated disaster last season. He could draw a few more starts in the near term, but the Cats surely can't wait until Roberto Luongo (neck) or Al Montoya (groin) are ready to return and bump Ellis from a starting role.

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers Will Start Ellis On Thursday

News: Dan Ellis will get the start in net on Thursday against the Stars, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis is having a pretty good year with AHL San Antonio, posting a 22-11-3 record with a .906 save percentage and a 2.70 goals-against average. He's had less success at the NHL level, most recently going 0-5-0 with a .836 save percentage and a 4.81 GAA in six games with the Panthers last season. The duration of Ellis' stay with the parent club will be dictated by the recovery timetables of Roberto Luongo (neck) and Al Montoya (groin), but while both goalies remain day-to-day, he'll temporarily assume the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. For that reason alone, he's worth a roster addition in deep leagues that start multiple goalies, but don't expect him to deliver impressive results.

Panthers Recall Ellis Amid Goalie Chaos

News: Dan Ellis was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Wednesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: With both Roberto Luongo (neck/shoulder) and Al Montoya (groin) forced to exit Tuesday's loss against the Maple Leafs at various points in the contest, both goalies are being listed as day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the Stars. The uncertain health of the netminders prompted the recalls of Dan Ellis and Sam Brittain on Wednesday, though it's unclear if either or both will be forced to dress Thursday. By virtue of his greater NHL experience, Ellis ranks third on the Panthers' organizational depth chart, so he would get the start Thursday ahead of Brittain in the event Luongo and Montoya are ruled out.

Dan Ellis

Ellis Assigned To AHL San Antonio

News: Dan Ellis was assigned to AHL San Antonio on Sunday.
Analysis: Dan Ellis has already made 12 appearances in San Antonio going 8-4-0 during those stints. He only spent three days with Florida, although he's a prime candidate to get another call-up if the Panthers need goalie depth at some point in the future.

11/27/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers Recall Ellis

News: Dan Ellis was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: With Roberto Luongo going down with an upper-body injury Wednesday night, Dan Ellis will join the Panthers to serve as the backup behind Al Montoya for at least Friday's game against the Senators. The Panthers have indicated Luongo's injury isn't considered serious, so Ellis' stay with the parent club doesn't seem likely to be long. Ellis went 8-4 with a 2.13 GAA and .918 save percentage over 12 games with San Antonio.

Dan Ellis

Panthers Place Ellis On Waivers

News: Dan Ellis was placed on waivers by the Panthers on Monday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The move would seem to signal that Al Montoya has won the backup job behind Roberto Luongo, but Dan Ellis will still remain with the Panthers for the time being. The Panthers have up to 30 days to assign him to AHL San Antonio after he clears waivers, so Ellis could stick with the big club for a little while longer as a practice player.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Out With Illness Thursday

News: Dan Ellis is feeling ill and will not be available Thursday against the Maple Leafs, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: With Roberto Luongo (upper body) returning to the net Thursday, Dan Ellis would have been ticketed for backup duty anyway. Scott Clemmensen will serve as the Panthers' No. 2 goalie Thursday.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Loses In Surprise Start

News: Dan Ellis allowed five goals on 27 shots in a 5-2 loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday night.
Analysis: It's hard to completely pin the loss on Dan Ellis, given that he didn't even know he was starting until pregame warmups, when starter Roberto Luongo pulled himself from the lineup. Ellis will be in line to start the Panthers' remaining two games if Luongo is declared out for the year. He will face Toronto and Columbus, respectively, if that's the case.

Dan Ellis

Panthers Will Start Ellis On Tuesday

News: Dan Ellis will draw the start in goal Tuesday against the Flyers, Erin Brown of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: It wasn't known until pregame warmups that Dan Ellis would be starting, as all indications during the morning skate were that Luongo would be in the crease. If it so happens that Luongo suffered a setback with the concussion he experienced just over a week ago, Ellis could be called upon to start the remaining handful of games for the Panthers.

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Lets In Six In Loss

News: Dan Ellis made 26 saves on 32 shots in a loss to the Devils on Monday.
Analysis: You could make the argument that Dan Ellis is the worst goalie in the NHL, but with Roberto Luongo banged up, the Panthers find themselves in an unfortunate situation.

3/30/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

PanthersTo Start Ellis On Monday

News: Dan Ellis is slated to start Monday's game against the Devils, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis is in line to get the start Monday, with Roberto Luongo not slated to travel with the Panthers on their two-game road trip to New Jersey and Long Island (where the Panthers play Tuesday).

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Eilis Dealt Another Loss

News: Dan Ellis made 15 saves in a 4-1 loss to Montreal on Saturday night. He allowed three goals.
Analysis: He remains without a win in Florida -- he's 0-3 in three starts. His fantasy value in Dallas was low, but it's even lower in the Sunshine State. Use caution.

3/28/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Will Start Saturday

News: Coach Peter Horachek said Dan Ellis will start in net on Saturday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis relieved Roberto Luongo (upper body) on Thursday, stopping 18 of the 20 shots he faced. He'll make a spot start for the Panthers on Saturday with Luongo taking the day off, but the Panthers' No. 1 goalie will likely return soon and should retake his spot in net when he does.

Panthers' Ellis Plays In Relief Of Injured Luongo

News: Dan Ellis stopped 18 of 20 shots while coming in to relieve an injured Roberto Luongo during Thursday night's 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Dan Ellis played decently well despite coming in cold late in the first period. Roberto Luongo's status for Saturday's game is currently up in the air, so there is a chance Ellis will get the nod against Montreal.
