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.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
