Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Canucks Release Ericksson

News: The Canucks released Anders Eriksson on Friday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ericksson was brought to camp on a tryout basis, but was a long shot to make the final roster.

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson Trying Out For Canucks

News: Anders Eriksson is attending Canucks' camp on a personal tryout contract, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The 36-year-old defenseman played in the Swedish Elite League last season. He has an uphill battle to win a roster spot, and even if he does nab a gig with Vancouver, he'll likely be given a two-way contract.

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR Isles Bring in Eriksson and Five Others for a Tryout

Anders Eriksson

Isles Bring in Eriksson and Five Others for a Tryout

News: Eriksson has been brought in for a tryout with the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Eriksson could be a possible replacement for Mark Streit, who will miss most of -- if not all of -- the regular season. Dean McAmmond, Krys Kolanos, Manny Legace, and Joel Martin were also brought in.

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Rangers get Eriksson from Coyotes

News: The Rangers have acquired D Anders Eriksson from the Coyotes in exchange for G Miika Wiikman and a seventh-round pick.
Analysis: Eriksson joins his eighth NHL team after spells with Detroit, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Columbus, Calgary and Phoenix. He spent all of last season in the AHL and played just 12 games for the Coyotes this campaign. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats. Wiikman is in his third North American season and has yet to play in an NHL game. He also isn't worth worrying about.

12/21/2009

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Coyotes sign D Eriksson

News: The Coyotes have signed D Anders Eriksson.
Analysis: The 34-year-old Eriksson was playing with San Antonio of the AHL before being snapped up by Phoenix. A first-round pick in 1993, Eriksson has previously played for Detroit, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Columbus and Calgary. He will just be a low-end defenseman for the Coyotes and has no Fantasy value at this time.

10/6/2008

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Flames waive Eriksson, Warrener, Lundmark

News: The Calgary Flames have put D Anders Eriksson, D Rhett Warrener and RW Jamie Lundmark on the waiver wire.
Analysis: None of these three have any Fantasy value, so don't worry about where they end up.

6/26/2008

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Flames place three on waivers

News: The Calgary Flames placed F Marcus Nilson, D Anders Eriksson and D Rhett Warrener on waivers Thursday. All three players have a year left on their contracts. Nilson had three goals in 47 games last season. Warrener had a goal and three assists in 31 games, and Eriksson had a goal and 17 assists in 61 games.
Analysis: None of these three have any Fantasy value, so don't worry about where they end up nexz season.

3/23/2008

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

A. Eriksson assists twice in win

News: Flames D Anders Eriksson found the score sheet for the first time in seven games Saturday when he assisted twice in a 5-4 win over the Wild. Eriksson now has 17 points on the season.
Analysis: Eriksson has never been much of an offensive force in his 10-year NHL career and has even been a healthy scratch a few times this season. Continue to ignore him in all formats.

1/14/2008

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR A. Eriksson stays sizzling in loss

Anders Eriksson

A. Eriksson stays sizzling in loss

News: Flames D Anders Eriksson recorded an assist on Calgary's only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday and now has six points in his last seven games.
Analysis: When a defenseman is averaging nearly a point a game, you know he is really finding his offensive flow with a team. The Flames are playing very well recently and Eriksson is taking full advantage. Still, this scoring explosion is unlikely to continue, so only pick him up in very deep leagues if you're struggling at the blue line position.

1/6/2008

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson finding opening scorers

News: Flames D Anders Eriksson tallied two assists and finished at even during Saturday's game against the Kings. He now has an assist in three of his last four games and four total. He has 10 assists this season.
Analysis: Eriksson is playing more than 20 minutes per game and is in the top two defensive pairings for Calgary. However, he has never been a guy to post a lot of points and remains just a low-end flier at this time.

11/19/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

A. Eriksson gets extra minutes

News: D Anders Eriksson played more than 30 minutes at Vancouver Sunday in Robyn Regehr's (face) absence.
Analysis: Regehr will be back for the next game, which makes Eriksson irrelevant again in most Fantasy formats for now.

10/31/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson plays Tuesday

News: D Anders Eriksson drew back against Nashville Tuesday in after being a healthy scratch the last five games. D David Hale was scratched. LW Eric Nystrom was summoned from AHL Quad City to replace LW Marcus Nilson.
Analysis: Ignore Hale, Eriksson and Nilson in most Fantasy formats for now.

10/25/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson, Nystrom sit Wednesday

News: The Sports Xchange notes: RW David Moss returned to action Wednesday after missing one game due to a concussion. That sent LW Eric Nystrom to the press box. C/LW Wayne Primeau (ankle) is out for several weeks. D Anders Eriksson was also a healthy scratch.
Analysis: Neither player is worth owning in most Fantasy formats even when they are active.

10/23/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson a healthy scratch again

News: The Sports Xchange notes: Mark Smith returned to action for the first time in three games, and LW Eric Nystrom was summoned from AHL Quad City and skated in his first NHL game of the season. D Anders Eriksson was the lone healthy scratch.
Analysis: Smith and Eriksson really aren't worth starting in most Fantasy formats.

10/19/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson, Mark Smith take a seat

News: The Sports Xchange notes: C/LW Wayne Primeau drew back in against the Kings Thursday after being a scratch for the previous two games and D David Hale played his first game of the season, drawing a hooking penalty on his first shift. D Anders Eriksson and C/RW Mark Smith were healthy scratches.
Analysis: Smith and Eriksson really aren't worth starting in most Fantasy formats.

7/11/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

D Eriksson heads to Calgary

News: Defenseman Anders Eriksson signed a two-year contract with the Calgary Flames on Thursday.
Analysis: Eriksson, an unrestricted free-agent, had 23 assists in 79 games with the Columbus Blue Jackets last season. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder also played for Detroit, Chicago, Florida and Toronto. He is only worth a look in the deepest of Fantasy leagues.

3/17/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Jackets play with Eriksson Friday

News: Blue Jackets D Anders Eriksson (back) returned to the team's lineup Friday against the Sharks. He played for 21:37 and finished with a minus-1 rating.
Analysis: It appears safe to get Eriksson back into active Fantasy lineups. When healthy, he is a low-end option in the largest of Fantasy leagues.

3/15/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson out against Ducks

News: Blue Jackets D Anders Eriksson (back) did not play Wednesday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Eriksson remains a day to day candidate. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues until he is able to return. When healthy, he is a low-end Fantasy option.

3/12/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson has a sore back

News: The Columbus Dispatch reports Anders Eriksson was injured on Saturday after being checked into the boards. He is nursing a sore back and is doubtful for Wednesday's game at Anaheim. "Anders is quite obviously sore," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We’ll take a look at him (Tuesday)."
Analysis: The team used Sergei Fedorov with Rostislav Klesla along the blueline to finish the game on Saturday, so they are hurting among their rearguards. No minor-league player has been recalled just yet.

1/13/2007

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR D Eriksson scoreless in seven

Anders Eriksson

D Eriksson scoreless in seven

News: Anders Eriksson was scoreless with a shot on goal in 24:38 of ice time in Friday's game at Nashville.
Analysis: Eriksson has now gone scoreless in each of the past seven games and is only worth a look in the largest of Fantasy leagues.

12/11/2006

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

D Eriksson has two helpers

News: David Vyborny and Anders Eriksson each added two assists for the Blue Jackets on Sunday against the Senators.
Analysis: Eriksson has six assists over the past 10 games. He remains a decent No. 4 or 5 Fantasy defenseman in most larger leagues.

11/8/2006

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson gets more responsibilites

News: Anders Eriksson will see more responsibilities along the blueline with Duvie Westcott (finger surgery) sidelined for at least six weeks.
Analysis: Eriksson has five assists in 11 games, tied with Ron Hainsey in points for second among Columbus defensemen. If he picks up his production with more ice time, he might emerge as a decent No. 5 or 6 Fantasy rearguard.

10/9/2006

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Jackets trio post assists

News: D Anders Eriksson, C Mark Hartigan and C Manny Malhotra posted assists in Monday's game against the Coyotes. Malhotra was a plus-1 in the game, while the other two were even.
Analysis: Eriksson has very little Fantasy appeal, while Hartigan and Malhotra are worth a look in larger formats.

7/1/2006

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Anders Eriksson back in NHL

News: Eriksson signed a one-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, the first day of the NHL free agency period.
Analysis: Eriksson split last season between Springfield of the AHL and Magnitogorsk of the Russian Elite League. If he makes the NHL roster, his Fantasy appeal will be minimal.

1/11/2004

Anders Eriksson, D, NYR

Anders Eriksson

Eriksson snaps goal drought

News: Anders Eriksson scored a power play goal in Saturday's game.
Analysis: Eriksson entered Saturday's game with a 135-game goal-scoring drought. He has no Fantasy value.
