I remember one game vs Boston (might have been regular season) he got absolutely smashed by Chara. He got right back up, took 3 more cross checks from Chara, and another hit. He went down, and got right back up. Chara then fed him 2-3 more cross checks, Eller took it, and bounced right back.

Most people would think that it's no big deal, but at the time it showed that this kid has enough heart to pair with his skill level. That cemented my views on him, that he should be an asset worth developing ASAP.
