Eller scored a goal on two shots and won seven of 11 faceoffs (63.6 percent) in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers. Eller slipped behind the Flyers' defense in the latter stages of the first period and beat goaltender Brian Elliott on a breakaway, breaking a scoreless deadlock. It was the 16th goal of the season and first in six games for Eller, who also matched his career best with 38 points. The 30-year-old has never been a high-end fantasy producer, but he's been a remarkably consistent real-life contributor, scoring between 12-18 goals in eight of the last nine seasons.
Eller registered an assist and two shots during Sunday's 5-3 win over the Penguins. Eller has four goals and seven points in 10 games during the month of February as he continues to march toward career highs. Should new arrival Ilya Kovalchuck be slotted on the third line, the Danish center could see an increase in his offensive ceiling and is worth a gander for those in deeper leagues.
Eller handed out a pair of assists and had four PIM in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche. Eller drew the secondary helpers on Tom Wilson's game-tying and T.J. Oshie's game-winning goals in the third period. Eller has now hit the scoresheet in six of his last eight games and is three points from the career-high 38 he put up in 2017-18. The 30-year-old has consistently landed somewhere between 25 and 35 points throughout his NHL career but has a chance at a 25-goal, 50-point campaign with a strong finish.
Eller scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders. Eller deposited a Carl Hagelin rebound in the second period to draw the Capitals to within 5-2. After recently enduring an eight-game goal drought, Eller has since found the net three times over his last four games. With 14 goals in 56 games, he's already surpassed the 13 he scored a season ago and his 33 points are five short of his career high.
Eller scored a pair of goals on two shots and had two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh. Eller opened the scoring midway through the first period to put an end to his eight-game goal drought, then added his second of the game with just over two minutes left in regulation to draw the Capitals to within 4-3. The 11th-year NHLer is headed toward the most statistically productive season of his career, having accumulated 13 goals and 32 points in 52 games. He has a good chance to eclipse his career highs of 18 goals and 38 points that he posted in 2017-18.
