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.

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.
May 2 - 10:36 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.

Lars Eller scored the overtime winner for Montreal as the Habs leaped into first place of the Atlantic Division with a win over Detroit on Thursday night.

Eller now has 27 points through 76 games this season, including four goals and an assist through his past six games. Eller pitched in 13 points during the Habs' playoff run last season, thus he could be a nice sleeper in playoff pools if you think Montreal will make a deep run.

Lars Eller scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Eller registered the only assist on Max Pacioretty's shorthanded goal in the second period, and he finished things off by scoring into an empty net in the final minute of play. The 25-year-old hasn't produced as much as some would hope this year, but he have four points in his last four games. Eller has 11 goals and 21 points in 64 games this season.

Lars Eller scored for the Canadiens in their 2-0 win over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Eller scored in the second period, with what’s considered the game-winner. The goal snaps a slide of 14 games without a marker; he had just one assists during that span, too. Eller has 18 points on the year and is not fantasy worthy. Brendan Gallagher scored the empty-net goal, his 19th of the season.
Mar 7 - 10:07 PM

Lars Eller scored a power play goal in Saturday's win over New Jersey.

The goal was Eller's first since December 29th and it also snaps an 11-game pointless drought for the Habs' forward. The 25-year-old is big and skilled but his offensive production has been limited again this season. He has just nine goals and 16 points in 46 games.

Lars Eller (lower body) expects to play Tuesday.

A final decision on his status won't be made until after the morning skate. Eller was forced to exit Sunday's game versus Arizona with a lower-body injury.
Feb 3 - 9:38 AM

Lars Eller left Sunday's game against Arizona with a lower body injury.

Eller was cross-checked into Arizona's net by Brendan Shinnimin and he came up limping. The 25-year-old came back into the game for one shift before exiting again. The Canadiens have confirmed that Eller won't be returning to the game.
Feb 1 - 3:20 PM

Canadiens center Lars Eller scored a goal and was a game-high plus-3 in his team's 3-1 triumph Monday night over the Hurricanes in Carolina.

Eller's goal was his eighth of the season. It was the second of two for Montreal in the second period. The first one was an unassisted marker scored by Sekic, his seventh of the season. Max Pacioretty closed out the Montreal scoring with his 14th of the season, an empty netter at 19:37 of the third. Montreal has won four in a row against Carolina and is 7-0-2 in its past nine games against the struggling Hurricanes. The Canadiens (23-11-2) are 2-0-0 on a five-game road trip that continues against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Lars Eller will return to the Montreal lineup Saturday night against Ottawa.

Eller, who has been out for the last two weeks with a lower-body injury, looked good in practice the past few days and seems good to go. He will center a line featuring P.A. Parenteau and David Desharnais. If you need Eller, get ready to activate him.

Lars Eller (upper body) returned to practice Monday.

He won't suit up in Tuesday's match against Carolina, but said he expected to be back "sooner rather than later." When he is able to return, coach Michel Therrien has to decide if Eller will play center or the wing. If he plays at center then it could result in Alex Galchenyuk being moved back to the wing.
