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.
Nov 8 - 9:01 AM

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.
Oct 25 - 7:52 AM

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.
May 14 - 5:47 PM

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.
Apr 26 - 8:54 AM

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.
Apr 10 - 12:13 AM

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.
Mar 15 - 10:46 AM

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.
Feb 8 - 8:21 AM

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.
