Tips & Shaving - SEP.15.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>I was just saying how good the fans were back in Everett, then I figured out people were posting messages at the bottom of this blog (don’t ask me why it took me this long to poke around this page). So what’s the first thing I see? A bunch of posts from Silvertips fans. See, I wasn’t making that up. Best fans

Fishing For Gear - SEP.14.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>It's day two already and I’m tired. The pace is waaay faster here than back in junior. It’s hard to keep up. I know my coach back in Everett is reading this, so let me say that I don't think your practices are easier, it's just that everything here is faster. Are we good?!? Anyway, I don’t know how these guys

Back At It - SEP.13.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>Okay, so right off the top, I’m on my third roommate of training camp – which is good since it means I’m advancing. Last night I had Willie Mitchell, he’s such a good guy. I don’t know why, but rooming with him really calmed me down. I guess it’s because he’s easy-going and really friendly. And he’s an Island g

Moving On - SEP.10.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4> I don’t quite know how to describe this feeling. I’m exhausted and elated. I knew I had a good day today, but I really didn’t know what the coaches were seeing. I got the word I was moving on to main camp as soon as we finished dryland training. What can I say about that? I know it’s a cliché, but it truly is

Local Perks - SEP.09.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4> When I agreed to write a blog for prospects camp, I had no idea it was going to be this hard. I’ve been trying to brew up a topic for the past hour and I’m still drawing a blank. Of course NFL Sunday and the final game of the Summit Series isn’t helping my focus much. I guess I should start off by talking abo

The Colwood Crawl - SEP.08.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>Let me clear something up right off the top: I see I’ve been taking some heat for my traffic jam comment. I’ll admit, I completely forgot about the Colwood Crawl, but I’m from Saanich and I never have to deal with that. I went to Claremont, so it was just straight back-and-forth to Saanich for me. Easy drive.

On Ice - SEP.07.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>I’m not going to lie, the first day on the ice was intimidating. I set the alarm for 7:05, but it was one of those nights where you’re rolling around because you’re worried about sleeping through it. I think I finally rolled out about 7:15. It was fairly quiet at breakfast this morning. Everyone was on the sh

Day one - SEP.06.07

<table width=90%><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/ellington3_09062007_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=3 hspace=4>So, I’m about to check a couple of "firsts" off my list today: my first NHL training camp and my first ever blog. My approach is pretty much the same for both - I don’t have a whole lot of expectations, I just want work as hard as I can… well, maybe not as much on the blog as on the ice, but I’m prepared to give it my best
