Capitals' Lars Eller: Ruled out of Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller will miss the rest of the IIHF World Championship due to a leg injury, J. J. Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The leg injury that will hold Eller out of the rest of the tournament is evidently the same one he played through during Washington's brief playoff run. The 30-year-old pivot believed he would be able to continue to play through the injury during the World Championship, but he was reportedly in notable discomfort following Denmark's third game, which prompted the Capitals to request that he return to the States. Eller should be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp, so this injury shouldn't have any impact on his availability for the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Suiting up at Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller will join Team Denmark at the 2019 IIHF World Championships.

Eller was not expected to join his country's effort at the upcoming tournament in Slovakia after revealing he had been injured during the NHL playoffs in April, but he's apparently healthy enough to resume playing. The 29-year-old center posted 13 goals and 36 points in 81 regular season games for the Capitals in 2018-19 and will be a key figure for the Danish side.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Dealt with injury during playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller said he was battling an injury during the playoffs, but no surgery is required, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.

Eller was given some maintenance days for an upper-body injury before the playoffs began, so this isn't exactly a shocking revelation. Despite posting an empty-net goal and three points in seven games, it's clear the Danish center wasn't playing with the same intensity that he did during Washington's Stanley Cup run, and the injury is likely the culprit. The 29-year-old is expected to make a full recovery and anchor the third line once again in 2019-20.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Scores on empty net in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored one goal on three shots over 19:36 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 win over Carolina.

Eller's empty-net goal came 19:23 into the final period, with the Caps leading by one score. The point marks the center's second in three games and gives him 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) over 81 games this season.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Good to go for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capitals coach Todd Reirden has no concerns about Eller (upper body) for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs versus the Hurricanes on Thursday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

This is huge for Washington, as Eller -- with seven goals and 11 assists in the playoffs last season -- was a clutch performer in the process of generating three game-winning tallies, and he helped the Capitals clinch the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. He figures to be an underrated option for those of you wading in fantasy playoff pools.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Takes maintenance day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (upper body) was given a maintenance day Monday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Head coach Todd Reirden indicated Eller started Monday's practice, but given that the Capitals are not in action again until Thursday, the team elected to give him the day off. The Danish center is expected to be ready for Game 1 against the Hurricanes, but those in playoff fantasy formats should check back for further updates over the coming days.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Pots goal Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller tallied a goal, three shots and three hits during Thursday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens.

Eller snapped a six-game scoring drought with the marker, bringing him to 13 goals and 36 points in 80 games. The Danish center has consecutive 30-point seasons with the Capitals in addition to providing valuable minutes on the penalty kill.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Productive in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Lightning.

While the Bolts got big nights from their superstars, the Caps' offense was carried by secondary players like Eller, which may well have been the difference. The veteran center is having a strong run to close out the season, scoring five goals and 11 points over the last 14 games.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Pots empty-net shortie in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a shorthanded goal into an empty net to polish off Friday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

The 29-year-old has been productive lately, scoring two goals and seven points in the last eight games. Eller's offensive opportunities remain somewhat limited without a top-six role -- he had only two points in his previous eight contests -- but at least for now, he's finding a way to contribute.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Tallies two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller recorded a goal, an assist and two shots during Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Senators.

Eller also won just four of 17 faceoffs but has now managed a goal and five points in his last four games. The Danish center is worth a look in deeper formats as long as Washington's third line continues to tear up the scoresheet, but expect the first-round pick from 2007 to cool down at some point.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Tallies assist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller recorded a power-play assist and two PIM while logging 16:02 of ice time during Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Rangers.

The helper gives Eller a goal and five points in his last nine games as Washington's third line is beginning to heat up. However, with just 27 points and a minus-11 rating in 62 games, the Danish center can be safely ignored in most fantasy formats unless he becomes a more consistent scoring threat.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Tallies two points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller recorded a goal, an assist and three shots while winning seven of 13 faceoffs taken during Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.

Eller now has a goal and four points in his last seven games centering a third line that was absolutely dominant in Saturday's losing effort. The 29-year-old Dane has seven goals and 24 points in 54 games and is only relevant to those in deeper fantasy formats.

Capitals' Lars Eller: In lineup versus Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (lower body) will play Tuesday versus Vancouver after participating in warmups, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Eller returns following a one-game absence due to a lower-body injury. The 29-year-old has struggled to score when he's been healthy, going goalless in his last 11 contests. He'll slot into his typical third-line center role, and Nic Dowd will come out of the lineup to make room for Eller's return.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (lower body) is "getting closer" to a return to the lineup and will be a game-time decision against Vancouver on Tuesday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.

Eller figures to slot into a third-line role if he is given the all-clear to return to the lineup. The center -- who missed Sunday's matchup with Boston due to his lower-body issue -- is bogged down in an 11-game goal drought, despite having put 23 pucks on net during that stretch. Nic Dowd will probably be the odd man out if Eller does suit up.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (lower body) won't suit up for Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Eller was expected to be a game-time decision but the Capitals made the call well before warmups commence. He'll sit out his first game of the season, and it'll likely cause the Caps to shake up the lines with either Nic Dowd or Brett Connolly centering the third line.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Game-time decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (lower body) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Bruins, Brian McNally of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Eller was limited to just 6:07 of ice time Friday against the Flames because of the lower-body injury, though he did manage to pick up an assist prior to exiting. He warmed up before Saturday's practice session but was ultimately unable to take part. Alex Ovechkin's return from a one-game suspension for skipping the All-Star break should ease the loss of Eller if he can't go.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Further evaluation set for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Capitals will have another update on Eller (lower body) on Saturday, Brian McNally of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Eller sustained a second-period injury in Friday's win over the Flames. Capitals coach Todd Reirden said after the game that he hopes the injury isn't serious, adding, "Hope we caught it early." Indeed, an extended absence for Eller -- if it comes to that -- would be detrimental to a Capitals team that relies on him heavily on both the power play and penalty kill.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Dishes helper before injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller (lower body) recorded an assist and four shots before exiting Friday's 4-3 win over the Flames in the second period.

Eller's injury remains a mystery, but he managed just 6:07 of ice time before heading to the training room. Expect more information to come quickly as the Capitals ready for a matinee against the Bruins on Sunday.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller won't return to Friday's game versus the Flames due to a lower-body injury, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Eller left early in the second period, and he still managed to notch an assist on Dmitrij Jaskin's goal. He has suited up for 150 straight games dating back to October of 2017, but he'll be in danger of losing that streak if he can't play Sunday versus the Bruins.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Ascends to second line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller is expected to center the second line for Sunday's game versus the Blackhawks, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Coach Todd Reirden is clearly shaking things up after the Capitals scored just four goals over the last four games, so Eller will replace Evgeni Kuznetsov on the second unit. Eller's in a drought as well, going minus-3 without a point in the last five games, but this promotion lifts his fantasy potential.
