ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired goaltender Dan Ellis from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for goaltender Curtis McElhinney.
“We are excited to acquire a goaltender of Dan’s caliber, someone we feel can help us immediately,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “He has experience playing in big games down the stretch.”

McElhinney suffered a cut on his forehead and flew with the team home to Anaheim. But Carlyle was incensed that the whistle wasn’t blown when his goalie, who was bleeding profusely, went to the ice.
“What’s the call when a goalie gets hit in the mask with a slapshot?” Carlyle asked aloud. “If it’s happening to the Canucks, what would you be saying? You’d be saying they should have blown the whistle.”
