We don’t have the financials just yet, but it looks as though the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Dan Ellis.
Ellis had hoped to sign with the Montreal Canadiens after having his rights traded, but with Alex Auld signing with the Habs, Ellis had to turn elsewhere.
He’ll be a great fit with Tampa Bay, as Steve Yzerman continues to rebuild his team is very short fashion. Ellis is a starting-caliber goaltender with a great work ethic and an even better attitude in the locker room.
