Canadiens' Lars Eller moving on from Gryba hit
Montreal forward taken off on stretcher during game last May
The image of Lars Eller lying motionless on the ice during a game last May is etched into the minds of many hockey fans and players alike — except that of the Montreal Canadiens forward himself.
Eller was being carried off the ice on a stretcher, blood dripping from his face after taking a vicious hit from Ottawa Senators agitator Eric Gryba. The hit drew plenty of criticism but Eller said he doesn't recall much of the incident.
The Ottawa forward was suspended two games for his efforts, while Eller suffered a concussion as well as facial and dental fractures on the play.
Eller sat down with Hockey Night in Canada's David Amber to talk about how he's moved on from the play and is looking at it from the rear-view mirror, not focusing on what happened.
