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.

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).

3/29/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

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.

3/27/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

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.

3/23/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Lets In Six In Loss

News: Dan Ellis gave up six goals on 40 shots in a loss to the Ducks on Sunday.
Analysis: Dan Ellis was a bit of a sacrificial lamb in this game, but he's also let in 15 goals in his last three starts, which, you know, is bad.

3/23/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers Start Ellis On Sunday

News: Dan Ellis will be in net for the Panthers when they face the Ducks on Sunday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis gave up five goals in his Panthers debut on March 13 and hasn't played since. Robert Luongo needs a breather, so this is Ellis' chance for redemption. He is 5-7-0 this season with a 3.20 GAA and .894 save percentage.

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers' Ellis Gives Up Five Goals In Debut Loss

News: Dan Ellis, making his Panthers debut, surrendered five goals on 28 shots in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Not very good results, but he hadn't looked very good with Dallas either. Dan Ellis is best avoided in most fantasy formats, especially because he doesn't project to see much more action the rest of the way.

3/13/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Panthers Turn To Ellis On Thursday

News: Dan Ellis will be the starter in goal Thursday vs. the Lightning, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: With coach Peter Horachek planning to save Roberto Luongo for Friday's match with the Devils, Dan Ellis will draw his second start for the Panthers since being acquired last week. His first showing against the Bruins didn't go particularly well, as he surrendered four goals on only 20 shot attempts.

3/6/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Ellis Headed To Panthers

News: The Stars have sent Dan Ellis to the Panthers in exchange for Tim Thomas, NESN.com reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis is now in line to back up Roberto Luongo, who is on track to see the bulk of the Panthers' starts in net down the stretch run.

3/5/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars' Ellis Allows Four, Loses In Spot Duty

News: Dan Ellis stopped only 16 of 20 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Not a pretty outing for Dan Ellis, though it was his first time allowing four goals in a game since Oct. 19, so there's room for some forgiveness here. Still, a few nice starts aside, Ellis has been quite mediocre when called upon for spot starts behind Kari Lehtonen.

3/4/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars Confirm Ellis For Tuesday

News: As expected, Dan Ellis has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Dan Ellis will match up against the Sergei Bobrovsky as he looks to make a bid at his second straight shutout after turning the trick in his last start, way back on Feb. 1 against the Ducks.

3/4/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars Expected To Start Ellis On Tuesday

News: Dan Ellis is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Analysis: With Kari Lehtonen having started Monday, Dan Ellis is in line to see his first action for the Stars since Feb. 1, when he recorded his first shutout of the season in a 2-0 win over the Ducks.

3/2/2014

Dan Ellis

Ruff Says Stars Will Start Ellis Soon

News: Coach Lindy Ruff said of Dan Ellis after Saturday's loss, "You're going to see him one of the next two," according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: The Stars are at home against Buffalo on Monday and in Columbus on Tuesday. Kari Lehtonen and Dan Ellis will split duties. Ellis' last start was a shutout win in Anaheim on February 1.

Dan Ellis

Stars Surprise Ducks Behind Ellis' Gem

News: Dan Ellis posted his first shutout of the season Saturday as the Stars upset the Ducks in Anaheim, 2-0. He turned aside 26 shots in claiming his fifth win of the campaign.
Analysis: The bagel nudges his goals-against average just under 3.00. Despite the strong outing, he's still going to play second fiddle to Kari Lehtonen as long as Lehtonen remains healthy.

2/2/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars Tap Ellis For Saturday Start

News: Dan Ellis will be in the crease Saturday against the Ducks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen's firm grip on the No. 1 goalie job has kept Dan Ellis off the ice for the last two and a half weeks. Coach Lindy Ruff will give Ellis the nod Saturday to make sure he stays fresh before the long layoff for the Winter Olympics. With a 3.25 GAA and .898 save percentage over 12 outings, Ellis doesn't make for a great streaming option.

Dan Ellis

Stars' Ellis Lets In Three In Loss

News: Dan Ellis made 27 saves on 30 shots in a loss to the Islanders on Sunday.
Analysis: Dan Ellis has played sparingly, and when he's played he has played poorly, as his sub-.900 save percentage indicates. There isn't much in the way of fantasy value here.

1/12/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars' Ellis Starting Sunday

News: Dan Ellis will start in goal Sunday against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis will look to get back on track after a shaky performance his last time out, when he gave up three goals on 13 shots in just one period against the Red Wings. He's posted a 4-1-0 record and a 2.83 GAA on the home ice so far this season.

Stars' Ellis Chased In Loss To Wings

News: Dan Ellis was pulled Saturday after giving up three goals on 13 shots by the Red Wings. He was replaced by Kari Lehtonen.
Analysis: So much for Lehtonen getting a rest. Dan Ellis was clearly rusty -- he hadn't appeared in a game since Dec. 17 -- and the Wings took advantage.

1/4/2014

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars Start Ellis On Saturday

News: Dan Ellis will start in goal for the Stars when they face the Red Wings on Saturday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Dan Ellis hasn't appeared in a game since December 17 when he made 25 saves to beat the Avalanche so he may have a bit of rust on him when he faces Detroit. He is currently 4-3-0 with a 3.04 GAA and .904 save percentage over 10 appearances (seven starts) this season.

Dan Ellis

Stars' Ellis Delivers Win Against Colorado

News: Dan Ellis stopped 25 of 27 shots Tuesday against the Avs to take home his third consecutive winning decision.
Analysis: Of course, those three straight wins date all the way back to Nov. 26, as Dan Ellis gets little playing time behind Kari Lehtonen. However, Lehtonen has been skidding lately, meaning Ellis could get another start in the short term -- perhaps Thursday against Vancouver -- on the strength of this outing.

12/17/2013

Dan Ellis, G, FLA

Dan Ellis

Stars Go With Ellis On Tuesday

News: Dan Ellis will make the start in goal Tuesday vs. the Avalanche, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: After another brutal outing by Kari Lehtonen on Monday night, coach Lindy Ruff will turn to Dan Ellis while his top netminder gets some rest. Ellis hasn't been particularly strong in his nine appearances on the season and wouldn't appear to be an especially reliable streaming option against a good Colorado squad.
