I believe that the ssl module is installed by default and should already be available to you. It is included in the Ubuntu packages used to build the one-click and enabling SSL for your site should just be a matter of adding a certificate and the appropriate configuration.

If you want to get set up with a free SSL certificate for your droplet, this guide will walk you through setting up a LetsEncrypt certificate.
