I’ll call it surprising news out of Nashville today. Ryan Ellis has been re-assigned to the Admirals.
Maybe he just loves the Dropkick Murphys THAT much…
With the Hal Gill trade, that bumped everyone down the depth charts a bit. I kind of expected to see Jack Hillen sent down.
But with this 3-in-3, maybe the coaches just want him to get some meaningful playing time this weekend. Maybe it’s another one of those spend-the-weekend-in-Milwaukee-and-we’ll-see-you-on-Monday assignments. Maybe they didn’t want to put Hillen through waivers and risk losing him.
It’s kind of a different tone from me on Ellis….Yeah, I’ve softened up a bit. Happy he was having some success in Nashville, and we’ll enjoy our time with him this go-around.
