Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Keaton Ellerby
Keaton Elelrby was born on November 5, 1988 in Strathmore, Alberta. He played his junior hockey in the Western Hockey League for the Kamloops Blazers and Moose Jaw Warriors.

Ellerby is the first cousin Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan and second cousin of Carey Price, goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens.

The defensive-minded defenseman was selected 10th overall by the Florida Panthers at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and began his professional career with their AHL affiliate in Rochester before making his NHL debut in 2009-10.

On February 8, 2013, Ellerby was traded by the Panthers to the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. Liking what they saw, the Kings re-signed Ellerby to a one year deal on July 4, 2013. However, the Kings would eventually place Ellerby on waivers and a month into the 201314 season, on November 2, he was claimed off waivers by the Winnipeg Jets.
