Goaltender Ken Ellacott was born in Paris, Ontario on March 3, 1959 and went on to excel during the 1978 Memorial Cup tournament. Ellacott was named the top goaltender in the Memorial Cup as well as being named to the tournament All-Star team for his outstanding play.

After that success, Ellacott spent three years in the CHL playing for the Dallas Black Hawks, capped by his performance in 1980-81 when he shared the Terry Sawchuck Trophy for fewest goals against in the Central Hockey League with Paul Harrison.

With that under his belt, Ellacott advanced to the National Hockey League with the Vancouver Canucks, who drafted him 47th overall in the 1979 Entry Draft.

During the 1982-83 season, Ellacott played 12 games with the Canucks notching two victories, three losses and 4 ties. The rest of that year, Ellacott tended goal for the Fredricton Express of the American Hockey League.

The next year, he was playing for the Montana Magic of the CHL. The 1984-84 season proved to be his final season, and he spent it with the Flamboro Mott's Clamatos, an Ontario-based Senior team.
