Ellerby wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Jets on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Ellerby recorded 16 points in 41 games for AHL St. John's last season, but otherwise spent much of his time in the press box during his stint with the Jets. The former 10th overall draft pick in 2007 looks to be little more than an organizational depth option on the blue line at this juncture.

Ellerby recorded an assist in his 16:58 of ice time Saturday against the Flames.

Saturday's game went down as the only appearance of the season for Ellerby, who had sat in the press box since being called up from AHL St. John's in mid-March. Ellerby only played in the regular-season finale because Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers were resting, so the 26-year-old shouldn't be viewed as a candidate to see the ice during the postseason.

Ellerby was recalled from AHL St. John's on Friday, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

With Tyler Myers dealing with an upper-body injury and uncertain to play Saturday against the Lightning, Ellerby will be brought aboard as an insurance option. With the exception of Myers, the Jets have six other healthy defensemen already on the roster, so Ellery may be forced to serve as a healthy scratch even if Myers is ruled out.

Ellerby was reassigned to AHL St. John's on Saturday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The returns of Toby Enstrom and Mark Stuart from injured reserve required the Jets to demote at least one of their blueliners, and Ellerby ended up being their choice. He stayed with the Jets for all of two games, serving as a healthy scratch in both contests.

Ellerby was recalled from AHL St. John's on Monday.

Ellerby was recalled as part of a move that sent Evander Kane to injured reserve. The reason for the Jets making the move is a bit unclear. One possibility Ellerby was recalled as insurance for one of the defenseman nursing an injury, or it could just be in preparation for the team's three-game road trip on tap later in the week.

Winnipeg waived Ellerby on Monday with the intention of sending him to AHL St. John's, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Ellerby played in 51 games for the Jets last season and only managed two goals and four assists with a plus-four rating. He has never scored over 12 points in his NHL career so even if he does get called back up to the Jets, he won't have a big offensive impact.
