Analysis: Local boy Ellington is a physical specimen for his age. He’s already filled out his frame and is a nasty defensive force. Brought up in one of the premier developmental teams in the country under Kevin Constantine has done wonders for Taylor. He’s a composed and confident defender who makes sure the forwards don’t forget his name and are looking over their shoulders for him at all times. He has a gaping wingspan and has developed an offensive touch from the point. If he continues to round out his development and stay on the right track he could turn into a stingy second pairing d-man.
