NASCAR driver Ryan Ellis goes viral after hockey player Ryan Ellis is traded

On Saturday, just before an NHL mandate freeze on trade / waiver of the expansion draft, the Nashville Predators, Philadelphia Flyers and Vegas Golden Knights completed a three-team trade. The Predators sent defender Ryan Ellis to the Flyers for defender Philippe Myers and striker Nolan Patrick. The Golden Knights then acquired Patrick from Preds for future Cody Glass.

Hockey player Ryan Ellis, who has no Twitter, did not tweet reaction to the deal, but NASCAR driver Ryan Ellis, who is a big Capitals fan, certainly did. And many say he won Hockey Twitter on Saturday.

For me, the peak of this stupidity was when the Bleacher Report confused NASCAR Ellis with the NHL, which created a Deadspin story.

In real life, NASCAR plays Ellis beer hockey and fits George Mason University in college. He is a northern VA native. And in fact do not like Flyers.

When asked to comment on his new fame on social media, Ryan replied, “Lololol. I’m such a loser. ”

In fact, my friend. Yes.
