Eller (lower body) told reporters he feels "100 percent" and is ready for the rest of the preseason, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Eller feeling healthy, he could be in contention to appear in Tuesday's preseason action versus Boston. Even if he doesn't crack the lineup, the center has plenty of time for a tune up and should be ready for Opening Night.

Eller (lower body) took part in Monday's training camp session, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Capitals will take the ice three times in the next five days, so look for Eller to see action in at least one of those contests if he is back to 100 percent. Even if he fails to log a preseason contest, the center seems on track to suit up Opening Night against the Bruins on Oct. 3.

Eller is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Washington kicks off its preseason schedule Sunday against the Bruins, a contest that Eller most likely will miss as he recovers from his lower-body problem. Given the day-to-day designation, the center should still be ready for Opening Night versus Boston on Oct. 3.

Eller scored a goal and dished out two assists Wednesday, helping his team even the series with a 3-2 win over Vegas in Game 2.

EDGE Analysis

With Evgeny Kuznetsov injured (upper body), Eller picked up the slack when his team needed it most. The Dane played a role in all three Washington goals, notching the primary assist on two goals and jamming the Capitals' first goal into an open net with Marc-Andre Fleury out of position. It's Eller's third three-point game of the playoffs, and he's showing a tendency to step up when the Capitals need a boost outside of their big guns. Eller can be a feast-or-famine player, but he's good value because of the chance for his games like Wednesday's

Eller scored a goal and two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Lightning in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

One of the helpers came on the power play as Eller continued his impressive playoff run. After beginning the postseason with two points (both goals) in his first seven games, the 29-year-old now has three goals and nine points in his last seven games.

Eller registered three assists, a power-play point and a plus-2 rating during Sunday's 4-1 win in Game 2 against the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Eller had a marquee playoff performance and now has two goals and five points in eight games during this postseason. The 28-year-old Dane is relied upon heavily for his defensive acumen, but more offensive efforts like this one won't hurt as Washington tries to get over the second-round hump for the first time since 1997.

Eller scored the game-winner nine minutes into the second overtime period Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

The road team has won all three games in the series so far in OT, although Eller's tally wasn't quite as impressive as the previous goals by the Jackets as the 28-year-old wasn't even immediately aware the puck had bounced in off him after Sergei Bobrivsky failed to squeeze Brett Connelly's shot. It was Eller's first point of the series, but he has been active, putting 13 shots on net through three games.

Eller recorded two assists and a plus-1 rating during Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Eller has been clicking well in recent outings with three goals and five points in his last six games. The Danish center has seen his offensive role increase while Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) is on the injured list and has some sleeper value in standard formats as long as Kuznetsov is on the mend, so pick him up if you're in need of a playoff boost.

Eller provided an empty-net dagger against the Islanders in Friday's 6-3 home win.

EDGE Analysis

Sure, the cage was uncovered, but Eller still needed to telegraph the puck from the defensive zone in order to light the lamp. It was the 17th goal of the season for Eller, who earned a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension with the Caps last month.

Eller recorded a goal during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

With his second goal in as many games, Eller has established a new career-high of 31 points in 60 games. The 28-year-old Dane has had a solid season for the Capitals, who rewarded him with a five-year contract extension earlier in February. Eller is worth a look in deeper leagues but will need a boost in offensive opportunity to be worth rostering in most formats.
