The Montreal Canadiens traded Forward Lars Eller to the Washington Capitals for two second round draft picks.
Eller is a 6′-2″, 27-year-old left-handed forward with speed. Heading into the summer of 2016, GM MacLellan noted a need for speed and for a third-line center. Washington addressed each of those needs just ahead of the start of the 2016 NHL Draft.
Listen to Lars Eller score his first goal in a Washington uniform, Caps lead the Rangers 1-0. https://t.co/RIyDBcv9ry
