Providence goalie Nick Ellis signed a two-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday, giving up his final season of collegiate eligibility.

Ellis, a free agent, took over as the Friars’ No. 1 goaltender this season and went 25-7-4 with a 1.80 GAA and .936 save percentage, the best season statistically for a Providence goalie.

He was an honorable mention Hockey East all-star and twice was named the league’s goaltender of the month.
