Canadiens retain Eller on 4-year deal

Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Montreal Canadiens agreed to terms with restricted free-agent forward Lars Eller on a four-year contract Thursday.

No financial terms were disclosed, but multiple reports state the pact is worth $14 million for the duration.

"We are very pleased to have agreed upon a long term agreement with Lars Eller. He is an important part of our group of young veterans. He has a tremendous work ethic and a great attitude," said Habs general manager Marc Bergevin.

"He is the type of player you can rely on for his play at both ends of the rink. Lars can play big minutes against the opponents' top players and still be an offensive threat. We are confident he will reach his full potential and become an impact player who will compete at a high level for many years to come."

The 25-year-old completed his fourth season with the Canadiens with 12 goals and 14 assists over 77 regular-season appearances. He struck for career bests in goals (five), assists (eight) and points (13) over 17 playoff games as the Habs reached the Eastern Conference finals.

In 286 career NHL games with St. Louis and Montreal, the native of Denmark has collected 45 goals and 58 assists to go along with 231 penalty minutes.
