Canadiens re-sign center Lars Eller

MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens re-signed Danish center Lars Eller to a two-year contract Friday.

The 23-year-old Eller had 16 goals and 12 assists in 79 games last season. He has 25 goals and 22 assists in 163 career games in three seasons with St. Louis and Montreal.

He joined the Canadiens in the June 2010 trade that sent goalie Jaroslav Halak to St. Louis.
