Montreal Canadiens re-sign centre Lars Eller for two years

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens re-signed centre Lars Eller to a two-year contract on Friday.

Eller, 23, earned the deal after notching 16 goals and 12 assists for 28 points with the Habs last season. He has spent two seasons in Montreal, posting 45 points in that span.

The St. Louis Blues selected the Rodovre, Denmark native 13th overall in the 2007 draft. But he only played seven games with the Blues before joining the American Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen.

Eller joined the Canadiens in June 2010, after he and Ian Schultz were traded for goalie Jaroslav Halak.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
