via the Nashville Predators,

Predators General Manager David Poile announced Thursday that defenseman Ryan Ellis is expected to miss several months due to recovery from offseason surgery to repair a lower-body ailment.

Poile is hopeful Ellis will be able to return around the start of the new year.

The 26-year-old blueliner tallied a career-high 16 goals and 38 points during the 2016-17 season and battled injuries during the playoffs while helping to guide Nashville to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

“The initial prognosis on this type of a knee injury is 4-6 months,” Predators general manager David Poile said. “Right now, we feel and the doctor feels it’s going to take the full six months for him to recover.

“Ryan’s not skating yet. He probably will be skating in approximately another three weeks, and the recovery will go from there. We don’t expect him back until the end of the (calendar) year, maybe the new year, maybe right around Christmastime.”
