News: Ellerby wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Jets on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Impact: Ellerby recorded 16 points in 41 games for AHL St. John's last season, but otherwise spent much of his time in the press box during his stint with the Jets. The 10th overall draft pick in 2007, Ellerby looks to be little more than an organizational-depth option on the blue line at this juncture.
Rotowire: Apr 12 / 1:56p ET
News: Ellerby recorded an assist in his 16:58 of ice time Saturday against the Flames.
Impact: Saturday's game went down as the only appearance of the season for Ellerby, who had sat in the press box since being called up from AHL St. John's in mid-March. Ellerby only played in the regular-season finale because Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers were resting, so the 26-year-old shouldn't be viewed as a candidate to see the ice during the postseason.
