Keaton Ellerby has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.
Ellerby's promotion was in response to Tyler Myers suffering an upper-body injury. We don't know the severity of Myers' injury and the fact that Ellerby has been recalled doesn't really tell us much. Keep in mind that even if Myers isn't dealing with a serious injury, the Jets might have decided to bring up Ellerby anyways as an insurance policy. Mar 13 - 2:10 PM
