  • Avalanche's Lars Eller: Starts contributing

    Eller scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over Detroit. He added one hit and two penalty minutes over 12:24 of ice time.

    A rebound of a Valeri Nichushkin shot found Eller's stick, and he controlled it then changed the angle to beat Ville Husso for his second consecutive game with a tally. Eller, who joined Colorado 10 games ago, made his presence felt during the team's four-game road trip. The third-line center had two goals and an assist.

  • Avalanche's Lars Eller: Goals stands upon review

    Eller scored a goal on one shot over 13:33 of ice time in Thursday's 5-4 win over Ottawa.

    Eller scored his first since being acquired by the Avalanche, but the tally had to withstand added scrutiny. The Senators first thought it was icing, but that was not called. Then goalie Mads Sogaard appeared to have covered the puck, but only for a brief moment, giving Eller, who did not hear a whistle, the chance to bang it into the net. The goal stood, and the Avs had a 5-2 lead. He's beginning to establish a comfort level with his new team, as head coach Jared Bednar noted to Evan Rawal of the Colorado Hockey Now following last week's win over Arizona, Eller's sixth game with Colorado.

  • Avalanche's Lars Eller: In lineup after acquisition

    Eller had one shot on goal over 14:28 of ice time in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Devils.

    Eller, who was acquired by Colorado on Wednesday, made it to the arena in time to play in the evening's game. Given the circumstances, it's not surprising he wasn't at his best, but the rest of the team can't fall back on a long day of travel. The 33-year-old skated as the third-line center, which resulted in that position's previous occupant, Alex Newhook, moving to wing on the second line. Eller is expected to remain in a bottom-six role while being strong on faceoffs and having a role on the penalty-kill unit.

  • Avalanche's Lars Eller: Traded to Colorado

    Eller was traded from Washington to the Avalanche in exchange for a 2025 second-round pick Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Eller has drawn into 60 games with the Capitals this season, picking up seven goals and 16 points while averaging 15:14 of ice time. Eller will likely serve as a bottom-six option and a penalty killer for Colorado, so don't expect a significant boost in his offensive production down the stretch.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Back in after scratch

    Eller is expected to play Tuesday versus the Wild, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Eller was scratched Monday versus the Islanders, but Nic Dowd (lower body) was hurt in that game. Eller will take Dowd's usual fourth-line spot, and the latter's injury should allow the former to remain in action more frequently for a while.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Likely out Monday

    Eller did not take line rushes during the morning skate, indicating he will be scratched Monday against the Islanders, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Head coach Peter Laviolette has been aggressively shuffling the lineup in recent outings, and it appears to be Eller's turn to take a seat following a six-game point drought. Dylan Strome is expected to take Eller's spot on the active roster.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Moved to second line

    Eller skated alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie on the second line during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.

    The Capitals are shuffling their line combinations following the return of Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson and Eller saw deployment as a second-line winger during the road loss. It's unclear how long the 33-year-old will remain in that spot given that he has played as a center for the balance of his tenure with the Capitals, but if Eller sticks in the top-six long enough to jumpstart his offense it could boost his fantasy value so keep an eye on his usage in the coming days.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Back in action

    Eller (upper body) will play Thursday versus the Stars, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Eller missed one game with the injury, but he's good to go. Sonny Milano (illness) is out of the lineup to make room for Eller, who has three goals in his last four games.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Not playing Tuesday

    Eller (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Tom Gulitti of reports.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: In doubt against Hawks

    Eller is being evaluated by the Capitals' medical staff for an undisclosed injury and will be a game-time decision versus Chicago on Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Eller was briefly on the ice ahead of Tuesday's morning skate but didn't stay out for practice. If Eller can't go, Alexei Protas looks set to step into the third-line center role while Joe Snively would enter the lineup for the first time since Nov. 15 against the Panthers. For his part, Eller's offensive game has been rolling with points in five of his last seven contests.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Scores in 900th career game

    Eller scored a goal, went plus-2 and added four PIM in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

    Eller marked his 900th career game by scoring the Capitals' fourth tally in a productive second period. The 33-year-old center doesn't pop off with his scoring, but he's quietly picked up three goals and two assists in his last seven games. He's up to six tallies, six helpers, 43 shots on net, 39 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 30 outings this season.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Nets Caps' opening marker

    Eller scored a goal on three shots during Monday's 3-2 victory over the host Oilers.

    Eller, who converted his first goal in 10 games Monday, notched a rare 5-on-5 road marker for the Capitals. The 33-year-old center's second-period tally tied Monday's matchup at 1-1 and marked the Capitals' 21st even-strength goal in 15 road games this season. Eller, who added two hits in the win, has amassed three points during his past four outings following a six-game pointless skid (Nov. 15-26).

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Earns 200th career assist

    Eller provided an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Eller had to wait a bit for the milestone -- he had gone six games without a point prior to Tuesday. The 33-year-old helped out on Anthony Mantha's first-period tally. In addition to 200 career assists, Eller's helper was his 200th point as a Capital. He's been a steady third-line option for years, and he's at eight points, 34 shots on net, 33 hits, 16 PIM and a minus-4 rating through 24 contests this season.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Nets third-period marker

    Eller scored a goal during Sunday's 6-3 loss to the host Lightning.

    Eller may be playing his way out of an early slump. He was held off the scoresheet in eight consecutive games spanning Oct. 27-Nov. 9, but Eller was credited with an assist during Friday's win over the Lightning and notched a goal during the rematch. The 33-year-old center contributed three shots, two hits and two PIM during Sunday's defeat.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Well-rounded effort Friday

    Eller earned an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Lightning.

    Eller had been held without a point for eight straight games leading up to Friday's victory, but the 33-year-old pivot turned in a nice performance that also included a plus-2 rating through 14:01 of ice time. Eller remains a dependable third-line contributor who's on pace for roughly 30 points this season.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Scores first goal

    Eller notched a second-period goal Monday, leading the Capitals to a 6-4 victory over the Canucks.

    Eller has proved to be a secondary scorer his entire career. A grinder who tends to chip in timely goals, the 33-year-old center did it again Monday, scoring eight seconds into the second period. Eller's first goal of the season gave the Capitals a 2-1 advantage. Eller also added three shots on goal and four hits.
