Florida Everblades President and General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Taylor Ellington for the 2012-13 season.

Ellington, 24, joins the Everblades after totaling 33 points (12g, 21a) last season in 69 games split between the Kalamazoo Wings (22 pts) and the Chicago Express (11 pts).

“I am thrilled that we are able to bring Taylor on board for next season,” said Poss. “He is a solid two-way defenseman who has a great shot. He is also a dedicated player who has a strong work ethic.”

The 6-2, 207-pound defenseman registered 17 points (3g, 14a) in 62 games played with the Victoria Salmon Kings (ECHL) from 2009-11. During the 2009-10 season, he posted four points in 19 games played with the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League. Ellington scored a goal in his professional debut while with the Moose on April 11, 2009.
