MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens have signed prospect defenceman Morgan Ellis to a three-year contract, the club announced Thursday.

In 54 games this year between the QMJHL's Cape Breton Screaming Eagles and Shawinigan Cataractes, Ellis has 13 goals and 46 points.

The six-foot-two, 204-pound native of Summerside, P.E.I., has 117 points (25 goals and 92 assists) in 231 games since his junior debut with Cape Breton in 2008-09.

Ellis took part in his second training camp with the Canadiens in 2011, appearing in one pre-season game.
