Lars Eller Scores First Goal as a Capital


Offseason acquisition Lars Eller notched his first tally as a Washington Capital on Saturday night against the New York Rangers. 

Lars Eller lit the lamp just 1:33 into the contest. Eller deflected a shot from the point by Brooks Orpik, for the games first goal. Orpik got the loan assist.

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.
