RYAN ELLIS COULD BE BACK WEDNESDAY FOR FLYERS-LEAFS!

By Jenny Masters

Defenseman Ryan Ellis may be back tomorrow night against the Leafs.

He’s been out two weeks with a hip/groin injury, and he practiced Sunday.

Ellis, acquired in an offseason trade with Nashville and paired with Ivan Provorov on the Flyers’ No. 1 defense tandem, was only supposed to be out for several days after initially getting hurt.

But the injury dragged on to the point where Ellis did not make the Pittsburgh-Washington trip and stayed behind to work on his rehab.

The Flyers have already been playing tight defense, having given up only three regulation-time goals in their last three games. Getting Ellis back would be a bonus, especially on special teams.
