Ice Hockey. On December 12, Lars Eller became the first Dane in NHL history to play in 900 games: the incredible achievement was accomplished by the Washington Capitals forward as his side defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in overtime. In 2018, Eller also made history by becoming the first Dane to win the ‘Stanley Cup’: by scoring the game-winning goal with 7:37 remaining in the third period in Game 5, he gave the Capitals a 4-3 win against the Vegas Golden Knights, thus clinching the first championship in Washington’s 43 seasons in the NHL.
