Brian Elliott is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the ninth round, 291st overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. A two-time NHL All-Star in 2012 and 2015, Elliott has actually also played in the NHL for the Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues and Calgary Flames.
Prior to the trade deadline of the 2010– 11 season, Elliott was traded as a part of Ottawa’s rebuilding process to the Colorado Avalanche on February 18, 2011, in exchange for goaltender Craig Anderson.
After winning simply two of his 12 starts with the Avalanche, combined with a mediocre 3.83 GAA, Elliott was released as a free agent after Colorado declined his qualifying offer.
Elliott signed a 1 year contract worth $600,000 with the St. Louis Blues on July 1, 2011. Forming a powerful goaltending tandem with Jaroslav Halák, Elliott renewed his career, posting a 23– 10– 4 record while sporting a 1.56 GAA. He was also opted to participate in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa.
On January 18, 2012, Elliott signed a two-year contract extension with the Blues. The deal carried an average yearly value of $1.8 million. Elliott will apparently make $1.7 million in 2012– 13 and $1.9 million in 2013– 14. After taking over for the injured Halák during the first round of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs, Elliott led the Blues to a series victory over the San Jose Sharks prior to eventually being swept in round two by the ultimate Stanley Cup champions, the Los Angeles Kings.
On May 19, 2014, Elliott signed a three-year contract extension to remain in St. Louis. The offer has an average yearly value of $2.5 million. On January 22, 2015, Elliott was named to the 2015 NHL All-Star Game in Columbus, replacing Columbus Blue Jackets’ goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who pulled out due to injury.
On March 12, 2015, Elliott tied Jaroslav Halák for the Blues’ franchise record in nothings. 5 days later, on March 17, Elliott went beyond Halák for the Blues’ shutout franchise record.
A 23– 8– 6 record during the 2015– 16 NHL season earned Elliott the starting function for the Blues for the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. He led the Blues to a first round victory over the defending Stanley Cup champ Chicago Blackhawks. He made 31 saves in the choosing Game 7 victory on April 25. Elliott and the Blues would then carry on to deal with the Dallas Stars, who had actually been the Western Conference’s number one overall team. Once again, the Blues prevailed in 7 games. Elliott’s only faltering happened in Game 6 of the series, when he was pulled in favor of Jake Allen after allowing 3 goals on seven shots. He would rebound the next game, making 31 saves in a definitive 6– 1 victory that propelled St. Louis to the Western Conference Finals for the very first time since 2001.
During the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Elliott was traded by the Blues to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2016 second-round choice (Jordan Kyrou) and a 2018 conditional third-round tease June 24, 2016. On October 24, 2016, he won his first game as a Flame versus Chicago in a shootout. Nevertheless, he fought with the team early, triggering them to switch to Chad Johnson as the team’s regular starter. Elliott regained the starting job after starting the season off 3– 9– 1 with a 3.31 GAA and a save percentage of.885. On June 17, 2017, GM Brad Treliving notified Brian Elliott that he will not be returning to the team for the 2017-18 season.
On July 1, 2017, Elliott officially signed a two-year, $5.5 Million handle the Philadelphia Flyers.
