After having been injured in training camp due to an Alexei Emelin hit, Lars Eller has missed a fair amount of action, including last night's game versus the Bruins. We finally got word today that it's not an injury that should keep him out of the lineup for long.
Lars Eller devrait revenir sur la patinoire d'ici une journée ou deux. "Rien de sérieux", assure Therrien.— Marc Antoine Godin (@MAGodin) September 24, 2014
"Lars Eller should be back on the ice within a day or two. Nothing serious" assures coach Michel Therrien.
Eller, who recently signed a four year extension with the club worth $14M, will be relied upon this year to provide secondary scoring, as well as alleviate the workload on defensive stalwart Tomas Plekanec.
He knows that with a new contract comes more pressure, but he said that he's ready to embrace his position and accept more responsibility within the organization.
