Lars Eller’s World Championship is over. After playing three games for Team Denmark, the Capitals center is out of the tournament due to a leg injury, according to a report by Ekstra Bladet.
Eller revealed on breakdown day that he had been dealing with an injury throughout the playoffs.
“I've been battling something,” Eller said. “Something that's been bugging me. A little bit of rest these next couple of weeks. Just have to take care of it. It doesn't require surgery, it's nothing serious, just with some rest over time, it will be fine, I believe.”
Eller also said the injury happened right before the playoffs and he took several maintenance days during the series. Though the injury required rest, Eller said he would speak to doctors before making a decision on participating in the World Championship.
