Ellerby was drafted 10th overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft from the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. During the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championship, Ellerby was invited to try out for the tournament, having played for Canada at the 2007 Superseries against the Russians, but was cut from the roster.

Ellerby scored his first NHL goal on January 25, 2011 against Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. During the 2012–13 season, on February 8, 2013, Ellerby was traded by the Panthers to the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft. The Kings re-signed Ellerby to a one-year deal in July 2013, but he was claimed off waivers by the Winnipeg Jets a month into the 2013–14 season.

Ellerby signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Jets the following summer, but spent most of the 2014-15 season with their American Hockey League affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps.

On July 7, 2015, Ellerby signed his first contract abroad, agreeing to a one-year deal with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League. After 42 games with the Kazakh-based club, Ellerby sought a release and immediately signed with Swiss team HC Fribourg-Gottéron of the National League A on January 4, 2016, for the remainder of the 2015–16 season.

As a free agent on October 27, 2016, Ellerby belatedly signed for the 2016–17 season with Finnish Liiga outfit, Lukko Rauma. Ellerby proved to be a solid addition to Lukko's blueline, contributing steady defensive play to go along with 3 goals and 12 points in 43 games.

On July 10, 2017, Ellerby continued his travelled European career in agreeing to a one-year deal with top tier Swedish club, Mora IK of the SHL.

International play

In December 2015, he won the Spengler Cup with Team Canada.


Ellerby is first cousins with Shane Doan, captain of the Phoenix Coyotes, and second cousin to Carey Price, goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens. Ellerby's uncle, Alvin Liknes, was a Calgary businessman whose disappearance and murder garnered national attention in 2014.
