Canadian hockey defender Ryan Ellis changed his place in the NHL for the first time in his career when he moved from Nashville to Philadelphia in an exchange between the three clubs. The Flyers sent striker Nolan Patrick to the Vegas Golden Knights Club. Nashville acquired striker Cody Glass and defender Philippe Myers from Vegas.
Ellis has been with the Predators since 2009, when Nashville drafted him from 11th place. He has played a total of 636 games in the NHL so far, in which he has scored 308 Canadian points. In the 2020/2021 season, he scored 18 points in 35 games, and added 5 points in 6 games in the playoffs. Until the end of Ellis’s 8-year contract (2018), there are still six seasons left, with a salary cap of $ 6.250 million in each.
Nolan Patrick was the overall number two draft in 2017 (behind the Swiss Nick Hischier), but his career was marked by health problems. These were the reasons why he did not play a single match in the 2019/2020 season. In the 2020/2021 year, he scored 9 Canadian points in 52 matches. In the NHL, he set a personal maximum in the 2018/2019 season, in which he scored 31 points in 72 games.
Glass was sixth in the 2017 draft, but has not yet won a stable place in the NHL. In the 2020/2021 year, he played 28 matches for Vegas, in which he gained 10 points, but he also competed in the AHL. He has played a total of 67 games in the NHL so far, gaining 22 points.
Until now, the 24-year-old Myers, who was not drafted but won a contract with Philadelphia, often traveled between the NHL and the AHL. In the 2020/2021 season, he scored 11 points in 44 matches.
