His 11 goals were third, and 33 points ranked fourth among all SHL defencemen.

The 6-0, 203 lb., native of Livingston, N.J. has also spent time in the KHL with Bratislava Slovan and has skated with the Manchester Monarchs, Ontario Reign and Texas Stars of the AHL totalling 19 goals, 32 assists and 86 penalty minutes in 157 career AHL games.
Initially drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round (211th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft, Ebert was a teammate of current Senators defenceman Ben Harpur on the 2014 Memorial Cup finalist Guelph Storm (OHL) and was coached by D.J.
