Predators sign Dan Ellis, Shea Weber

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators have signed goalie Dan Ellis and defenseman Shea Weber.

The team announced Monday that Ellis signed a two-year deal for $3.5 million. Weber signed for three years and $13.5 million.

Ellis, who led the league in save percentage with .924, will likely be teamed up with prospect Pekka Rinne in training camp. The 28-year-old goalie was signed as a free agent last July and was a key part in Nashville's late-season run to clinch a fourth consecutive playoff berth.

In the 2007-08 season, Weber established a career high in average time on ice with 19:29. He also tied personal bests in shots with 152 and game-winning goals with 2. That is despite missing 28 games due to injury.

In 161 career NHL games, the 23-year-old Weber has amassed 70 points and 161 penalty minutes.
