Capitals' Lars Eller: Opens scoring in eventual loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Dishes helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Lars Eller: In on tying, winning goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Stuffs home 14th goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Breaks out of goal-scoring skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Bags apple Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller tallied an assist, six shots and three hits during Monday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.

The helper brings Eller to three goals and seven points in nine games during the month of January, keeping him on pace to eclipse the 40-point mark for the first time in his career. The Danish center is worth a gander in deeper leagues.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Caps off thrilling comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller notched two points, including the game-winning goal, in a 5-4 overtime win against San Jose on Sunday.

That's now back-to-back contests with two points. Blessed with a knack for coming up big in key moments, Eller's deciding goal was his first game-winning marker this season. The defensive-minded forward also contributed three blocked shots in the win. Assuming he maintains his current rate of production for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Eller is going to eclipse 40 points for the first time in his NHL career.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Notches two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a power-play goal and dished an assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Eller set up Richard Panik for the opening goal in the second period, and then scored one of his own at 2:29 of the third. The 30-year-old has been reliable lately with three goals and four helpers over his last nine contests. Eller is up to 23 points, 101 shots on goal and 26 PIM through 42 games, a career-best pace on offense. His previous best came in 2017-18 when he recorded 38 points in 81 games.

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

Eller will center the second line between Jakub Vrana and T.J. Oshie for Tuesday's matinee against the Islanders, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Head coach Todd Reirden is likely trying to spark the third line with the lineup shuffle. While the move may be temporary, the Danish center is at least temporarily in a better offensive position given the capabilities of Jakub Vrana and T.J. Oshie, so if you're looking for value in daily formats, the 30-year-old may be worth a gander.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Pots goal in Monday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller registered a goal, three shots and a minus-2 rating during Monday's 7-3 loss to the Bruins.

The marker gives Eller two goals and six points in 10 games during the month of December. The 30-year-old Dane seems to be starting to click on the third line with Carl Hagelin and Richard Panik and is on pace to eclipse the 40-point barrier for the first time in his career, which gives him some modest fantasy appeal in deeper formats.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Assists in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller recorded an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

Eller has now provided a helper in each of the last two games. The center has 16 points (six scores, 10 helpers) in 30 games this season. Eller has added 64 shots on goal and 20 PIM to round out his stat line.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Chips in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Eller had the primary assist on Jakub Vrana's second-period tally to make it 5-1. Eller has filled in on the second line while Nicklas Backstrom (upper body) has been out. The Danish center has 15 points in 29 games this season, which could be enough production for fantasy owners in deeper formats to take notice.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Ends nine-game goal funk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored on his lone shot and dished out three hits Wednesday in a 4-3 win over Florida.

Eller swiped home a rebound in the slot five minutes into the third period to give the Capitals a 3-2 lead. It was his sixth goal of the season but his first since Nov. 3, putting an end to his nine-game goal drought. Eller has had a quiet month with just two goals and two assists in 12 November games, but he is showing signs of coming out of it with points in three of his last four.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Dishes helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller tallied an assist and four shots during Monday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

Eller snapped a six-game point drought with the helper on Richard Panik's opening goal. The 30-year-old has five goals and 12 points in 23 games thus far.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Lights the lamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller tallied a power-play goal and three shots during Sunday's 4-2 win over the Flames.

Eller has posted three goals and six points in his last seven games, bringing him to 11 points in 16 games to start the season. Though his current shooting percentage is primed for some regression (15.6%), the Danish center is on track to set new career-highs in 2018-19 and is a worthwhile consideration for those in deeper leagues and daily formats.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Shorty and helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a shorthanded goal and added an even-strength assist in Friday's 6-5 shootout win over the Canucks.

Eller played a key role in the Capitals' four-goal comeback, setting up Evgeny Kuznetsov at the buzzer in the second period and then bringing the Capitals to within two early in the third period. He went plus-2 and had two shots on goal in the contest. Eller has amassed four goals, 10 points and 12 PIM in 13 games this season.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Gets in on winning, empty-net goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored an empty-net goal and added an assist to go with two shots and two PIM in Sunday's 5-3 victory over the Blackhawks.

Eller assisted on Tom Wilson's go-ahead goal with 8:13 left in the third period and sealed the win with an empty-net goal with 50 seconds remaining. The 30-year-old has three goals and seven points in 10 games and should once again end up with somewhere between 12-18 for the year, as he has done in each of the six previous seasons.

Capitals' Lars Eller: Tallies in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Eller's goal came in response to four tallies from the Avalanche, which proved too much for the Capitals to overcome. Eller has two goals and five points through seven games. He's also served 8 PIM and racked up 15 shots on goal.

October 11, 2019 12:20 AM
Capitals' Lars Eller: Lights lamp for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller scored a goal on three shots in a 6-5 loss to the Predators on Thursday.

Eller opened the scoring in the first period with his first tally of the season, causing a turnover in the offensive zone to start the sequence that eventually led to his goal. He also had a positive night in the faceoff circle, going 9-for-17 (52.9 percent). Don't expect Eller to provide much more than 15 goals or 20 points in 2019-20; his single-season bests are 18 and 38, respectively, both of which came in 2017-18.

October 5, 2019 11:40 AM
Capitals' Lars Eller: Picks another apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eller registered an assist and two PIM in Friday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.

Eller's in a groove to start the season, having collected three helpers in two contests. He's enjoying second-line deployment right now, but he'll return to his regular third-line role when Evgeny Kuznetsov returns from suspension Tuesday versus the Stars.
