Playing career

Eager was drafted in the 1st round, 22nd overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He was later traded by the Coyotes along with Sean Burke and Branko Radivojević to the Philadelphia Flyers for centre Mike Comrie.

The 2006–07 NHL season would see Eager lead the league in penalty minutes, even though he only played 63 games. That same season, he also won the Pelle Lindbergh Memorial as the Flyer who has most improved from the previous season, as voted by his teammates.

Eager was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks on December 18, 2007 for Jim Vandermeer

Eager scored his first Stanley Cup playoff goal in game two of Chicago v Vancouver on May 2, 2009 in Vancouver. This led to the Blackhawk's first victory against the Canucks and evened the series 1-1.
