Ryan Ellis was encouraged by how the Nashville Predators performed in the 2016 playoffs.

The Predators eliminated Anaheim in seven games, but ultimately lost to San Jose in seven contests. "Although you never want to lose and you never want to go out of the playoffs, I think the way we competed in that playoff run will help our group moving forward," Ellis said. "Ultimately, I think as every team does, we search for consistency throughout the year. We know how good of a team we have, and if we can be consistent all the way throughout, I think there's only good things that can happen for this team." After the playoffs, Ellis took part in the 2016 World Championship and won a gold medal with Canada.
