Correcting an earlier report, Stefan Elliott was traded from Arizona to Nashville, not Montreal, in exchange for Victor Bartley.
This is a bit of an odd case because the order of events was initially reported incorrectly, but the outcome is unchanged. Originally it looked like Elliott would be dealt to Montreal along with John Scott. The Canadiens would then keep Scott, but turn around and trade Elliott to Nashville for Bartley. Instead, Arizona is trading Elliott to Nashville directly, but rather than keeping Bartley, they are trading him to Montreal as part of the John Scott deal. Confused? Well, the end result is that Elliott is now part of a franchise that's NHL squad already features a deep, strong defense. We'll have to wait to see if he'll play for the Predators as he successfully cleared waivers and was sent to the minors prior to this trade. Jan 15 - 3:38 PM

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Stefan Elliott from the Arizona Coyotes.

Elliott successfully cleared waivers on Friday and was sent to the minors to make room for John Scott, who as it happens is also part of this trade. Canadiens fans shouldn't get too attached to the idea of having Elliott though as Montreal is reportedly trying to turn around and deal him to Nashville.

Stefan Elliott has been sent to the minors.

This move was expected after Elliott cleared waivers, but now we have confirmation. He has two goals and six points in 19 games with Arizona in 2015-16.
Jan 15 - 2:31 PM

Stefan Elliott wasn't taken on waivers.

Elliott has two goals and six points in 19 contests in 2015-16. The 24-year-old defenseman has participated in 82 career NHL games.
Jan 15 - 12:20 PM

Stefan Elliott has been placed on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes.

Elliott has two goals and six points in 19 games this season. He's been averaging a modest 14:14 minutes per contest.
Jan 14 - 1:18 PM

Stefan Elliott collected his third goal of the season, pushing Arizona past Calgary 2-1 on Thursday night.

It's the first game-winner since his rookie season in 2011-12 with Colorado, where his career high for four goals was set as well. With only nine goals and 24 points in now 82 total career NHL games, we wouldn't rush to pick Elliott up off waivers. But it's always nice to see light-scoring defensemen chip in anyway.
Jan 7 - 11:55 PM

Stefan Elliott has two goals and four points in 12 games in 2015-16.

Elliott did miss some time earlier due to an upper-body injury, but he's also spent some time in the press box as a healthy scratch this season. He's not worth owning in single season leagues yet, but he has enough offensive upside to make him worth keeping an eye on. For now though, a big part of the problem is that when he does play, he's averaging just 14:47 minutes per contest.

Steffan Elliott and John Scott will both be healthy scratches in Monday's game against the New York Islanders.

Elliott, 24, has one goal and a minus-3 rating in seven games this season. Scott, 33, is nothing more than an NHL goon. He has one assist and 18 penalty minutes in five games.

Stefan Elliott scored his first goal as a member of the Coyotes on Thursday.

It's only the sixth goal and 18th point of Elliott's 68-game career, so we wouldn't count on him winning a Norris any time soon.

Stefan Elliott (upper body) will get back into the lineup Monday against Anaheim.

Stefan Elliott (upper body) took part in Sunday's practice.

Elliott is believed to be close to returning, which would provide the Coyotes with some help after losing Nicklas Grossmann to a lower-body injury. If Elliott plays on Monday it will likely be with Grossmann's defensive partner, Connor Murphy.

Wed, Nov 4, 2015 03:34:00 PM

Stefan Elliott will not play in Saturday's tilt against the Senators.

Elliott has 63 career NHL games, and just 26 since 2012 and so it appears that neither Colorado nor Arizona are keen on playing him much. You shouldn't either.
