Washington Capitals

The Capitals have signed Lars Eller to a five-year extension worth $17.5M ($3.5M AAV).

Eller was set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason but signs a five-year extension for the exact same cap-hit he already had ($3.5M). Eller has enjoyed the best offensive season of his career to-date, as he’s on-pace for a career-high in goals (17), assists (26) and points (43) after picking up 11 goals and 17 assists (28 points) in his first 53 games of 2017-18.

Eller missed Monday's practice because of an illness.

Eller’s status for Tuesday’s game vs. the Maple Leafs is in question after missing Monday’s practice session with an illness. With Eller not on the ice, Tyler Graovac centred the Capitals’ third line. Eller has just assists in six games this season and doesn’t carry much fantasy value as a bottom-6 option in Washington.

Eller is week-to-week with an upper-body injury that he suffered on Friday.

Eller played just one shift in Friday’s shutout win over the Red Wings. He left with what the Capitals are now describing as an upper-body injury. There’s no word on how Eller got hurt, but it sounds like it will keep him sidelined for at least a few weeks.

Eller (illness) will return to the Canadiens lineup on Wednesday.

Eller has missed the last two games with an illness, but will draw back into the lineup tonight in Buffalo. The two-way centre has 11 goals, 11 assists (22 points) and a minus-14 rating in 67 games this season. Stefan Matteau will be a healthy scratch with Eller back in.

Eller (upper-body) took part in the morning skate, but is listed as a game-time decision for Tuesday.

Eller missed Monday’s practice and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s meeting with Dallas. Monitor his status during pre-game warmups, but if he is unable to play look for Lucas Lessio to get into the lineup.
