Lars Eller scored the shootout winner in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Eller got it done in the fifth round of the shootout. "I was nervous, but that’s a situation you want to be in," Eller said after he beat James Reimer in the fifth round of the shootout. "This win was a long time coming. We’ve had a lot of games where little things made the difference. Tonight, we had a good start and then it was like a roller-coaster. We didn’t play as well in the second and the third period was pretty even. But we had confidence and you saw that in the goals tonight." Jan 24 - 12:08 PM

Lars Eller scored for the first time since Dec. 3 in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Chicago.

Eller had been struggling mightily with one assist in his previous 18 games. He has notched eight goals and 14 points in 46 matches this year and shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

Lars Eller registered an assist on Tuesday night in a 2-1 loss to Minnesota.

He didn't have a point in his previous eight games. Montreal has been struggling mightily this month and most of their forwards have been having difficulties contributing points. Eller has 12 points in 36 contests this year.

Keep an eye on Lars Eller as he has been playing very good hockey as of late.

So says his coach Michel Therrien. "The last three weeks, I’ll say Lars is playing some phenomenal hockey," Therrien said. "His work ethic, it’s perfect," Therrien added. "He’s got a role that’s really important for us. He’s killing penalties. Yesterday, we put him on the power play. He creates chances for Chucky (linemate Alex Galchenyuk). He’s playing really well." If Eller continues to get power-play ice time he is worth rostering.

Lars Eller potted his seventh goal of the year in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Washington.

Alex Galchenyuk and Tomas Plekanec earned helpers on the play. Eller tied the game at 1-1 and ended a seven-game goalless skid in the process. He has earned a point in four of his last five contests.

Lars Eller scored a shorthanded goal to start Montreal's 4-3 comeback OT win Monday night against Vancouver.

He got the Canadiens on the board after the Canucks scored three straight goals. Eller has six goals and one assist in 19 games this season.

Lars Eller scored a goal in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

Eller found the back of the net with the Canadiens down by one in the third period. Montreal then got two more goals to close out the game. Eller has five goals and six points in 16 games this season. He's on pace to score 26 goals in 2015-16.

Lars Eller recorded a power-play goal in Sunday's 5-1 win against Winnipeg.

He has averaged just 48 seconds per game on the man advantage after 13 games this season, so you shouldn't expect much production from him in that capacity. Eller has four goals on the year now after Andrei Markov's shot went off the boot of his skate.

Lars Eller scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Eller's goal at the 1:54 mark of the second period extended Montreal's lead to 2-0. It was his first since he scored a pair of goals against Boston seven games ago. He now has three goals and four points in nine games this season. He's playing on Montreal's second line with Alex Galchenyuk and Alexander Semin, but his offensive ceiling remains low.

Lars Eller potted two goals to lead the Canadiens’ 4-2 win against the Bruins on Saturday night.

Don’t let this fool you: Eller does not offer much from a fantasy standpoint, as he had just 15 goals and 27 points last season. David Desharnais and Tomas Plekanec picked up the other markers. Alex Galchenyuk had three assists, while Alexander Semin had two.

Lars Eller scored a pair of goals in a team scrimmage on Saturday.

Eller skated on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Alexander Semin. With Galchenyuk shifting to center this season it looks as though Eller will move to left wing. "I’m excited to play with two very, very skilled players," Eller told reporters on Friday. "I think we can form a really dangerous line. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun playing together." It's still early in camp but if the 26-year-old remains in Montreal's top-six forward group, he could have a decent offensive campaign. If you're looking for a sleeper in a deep fantasy league, Eller could be your guy.

The Montreal Canadiens are switching Lars Eller from center to left wing, or at least that's the current plan heading into the 2015-16 season.

Eller scored 15 goals and 27 points in 77 games last season. After exciting people in 2012-13, he's more or less stagnated offensively. Perhaps some changes will serve as a wake-up call?

Lars Eller suffered a groin injury in Game 2 against the Lightning.

He had one goal and two assists in 12 playoff matches, while averaging just under 16 minutes of ice time per game. During the regular season, he earned 27 points in 77 appearances and his average ice time checked in at 15:29 per match. Eller feels he has more to give and he would like to get a larger role to do that.

Lars Eller was arguably the best Montreal forward in Friday night's 2-1 double-overtime loss to Tampa.

He certainly held his own against the tough physical play of the Lightning defensemen. That could not be said for many of the Habs' forwards, especially David Desharnais, who got pushed around most of the night. Montreal will be hoping for a better result in Game 2 Sunday.
Sat, May 2, 2015 10:36:00 AM

Despite back-to-back losses in their first round series against the Ottawa Senators, Lars Eller believes his team is still in a good spot right now.

Montreal won games one, two and three of the series but the Senators have been able to gain some momentum in the last two contests. "We’re in a good position, we’re up 3-2 and I think we would have taken that before the series started," said Lars Eller. "We have two chances to win one game." The Canadiens will look to close out the Senators (again) on Sunday night.
