Preds Ryan Ellis details intense offseason training regimen

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis is in his second season with the team and said his intense training helps him stay ahead of the competition.

He's not a big guy, but Ellis is smart.

"I want to be as fast as I can out there," Ellis said. "I'm never going to really be able to throw guys around in the NHL, so I think speed and quickness and agility is my biggest asset."

Ellis spends much of the offseason training back home in Hamilton, Ontario. Much of the training involves working with weights, resistance exercise and agility drills.

"My weight's improved and my speed has improved, and I think that's the biggest thing going into the next season is having that confidence knowing that you met some of your goals in the gym," he said.
