Ellis finished with 10 goals and 32 points, both new highs for him. It's taken a bit of time for his rose to bloom, but he's enjoyed three consecutive seasons of growth. We'd keep an eye on him for your next draft.

Ryan Ellis suffered an upper-body injury in Tuesday's loss to the Dallas Stars.

Ryan Ellis scored in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Ellis opened the scoring with an unassisted shorthanded goal at the 6:12 mark of the opening period. The 25-year-old has nine goals and 31 points in 76 games this season. He's collected at least one point in three of his last four games.
Mar 29 - 11:50 PM

Ryan Ellis registered a goal for the Predators, who came up short 2-1 in their overtime loss to the Kings.

The goal is his first since Jan. 19, and his seventh of the season. Ellis doesn’t offer a lot of fantasy value as he has only 24 points. James Neal and Mike Fisher got the helpers.
Feb 20 - 10:57 PM

Ryan Ellis scored in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Predators' tough run continues as they've won just two games in 2016. Ellis cut Chicago's lead to 2-1 just 25 seconds after the Hawks scored their second goal. The 25-year-old has six goals and 20 points in 45 games this season. Miikka Salomaki and Mattias Ekholm picked up the assists on Nashville's only goal.
Jan 19 - 11:21 PM

Ryan Ellis picked up his fifth goal of the season during Friday's 5-3 loss to Colorado.

With five goals and 18 points so far, it seems all but certain that he'll top his career highs of nine goals and 28 points. So if he's on your waiver wire, you may want to fix that.
Jan 9 - 12:24 AM

As long as Ryan Ellis stays healthy, he should surpass the 30-point mark this season.

Ellis is currently on pace to record 34 points in 81 games, which is a reasonable expectation for him. In fact, it wouldn't be shocking to see Ellis pick up the pace offensively in the second half of the campaign rather than merely maintain the status quo. But again, the big X-Factor is health as he would have easily surpassed the 30-point milestone in 2014-15 had he been able to play the full season.

Ryan Ellis broke out with a goal and two assists for the Predators to help them top Anaheim 5-1 on Thursday night.

The performance certainly gives the 24-year-old a jolt after scoring a point in the season opener, then going pointless for four games. Ellis has four points through six games and is hoping to top his career high of 27 points this year.
