Former Steelheads goalie headed back to Dallas

STATESMAN STAFFJuly 6, 2013 

DALLAS - Free agent Dan Ellis, who won a postseason MVP award for leading Idaho to the ECHL Kelly Cup championship in 2004, has signed a two-year, $1.8 million contract with the Stars, where he made his NHL debut nine years ago.

The 33-year-old Ellis was 6-8-2 in 19 appearances with Carolina last season. He has a 2.73 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in 184 career games. Ellis, a second-round pick by Dallas in 2000, was on the roster behind Marty Turco when he played his only game for the Stars, a 4-3 win at Los Angeles on Feb. 18, 2004. This time he's likely to be behind Kari Lehtonen.

Ellis has also played for Nashville, Tampa Bay and Anaheim.
