Loui Eriksson

Bruins' Eriksson Scores Game-Winner Wednesday

News: Loui Eriksson collected a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Wild.
Analysis: The winger teamed up with linemate Carl Soderberg twice on the night, and ended up picking up the game-winner in overtime. He now has six goals and 11 assists in 32 games this season, and has started to heat up lately.

Bruins' Eriksson Nets Fourth Goal

News: Loui Eriksson tallied his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson's tally came on the power play with just 30 seconds remaining in the second period, giving the Bruins a four-goal cushion. The score snapped a 13-game drought without a goal for the winger.

Bruins' Eriksson Back In Goal Column

News: Loui Eriksson scored a goal for the first time since Oct. 16 and added a power-play assist in Thursday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: A nice night for Loui Eriksson, who's nonetheless still struggling to prove that he can be the kind of team-carrying scorer he was for the Stars from 2008-09 to 2011-12 before suddenly falling off the pace in the lockout-shortened season two years ago. Still only 29 years old and enjoying regular top-six ice time for the B's, Eriksson represents a somewhat risky, but potentially high-reward buy-low opportunity.

Bruins' Eriksson Notches Assist In Victory

News: Loui Eriksson gathered an assist on the first of two goals by Matt Fraser in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Bruins.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson now has assists in back-to-back games while going plus-3 during that span, but his overall production for the season (seven points in 13 contests) has been rather pedestrian for a player averaging 17:38 of ice time. He should be a season-long asset in the plus/minus category for fantasy owners, but it's tough to forecast a return to the 70-point production he demonstrated with the Stars earlier in his career. Reaching 60 points might even be a stretch for Erikkson at this stage in his career.

Loui Eriksson

Eriksson Notches Two Points For Bruins

News: Erikson scored a goal, contributed an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: This defeat certainly can't be laid at Loui Eriksson's feet, but even with this effort, he hasn't bounced back much yet this year, with just three points in six contests. It's odd for a guy who's less than 30 years old and doesn't have much of a track record with injuries to decline as Eriksson has, but his fantasy owners are stuck with that reality.

Bruins' Eriksson Scores First Of Season

News: Loui Eriksson netted his first goal of the season -- a power-play tally -- in Monday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: It was also the first point of the season for Loui Eriksson, who is currently skating on the third line with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly. Eriksson's fantasy value has gone down in Boston, where he's no longer playing on the top line and top power-play unit, as he did in Dallas. Through four games, Eriksson has managed just seven shots on goal while averaging 16:32 of ice time.

Loui Eriksson

Eriksson Skates With Kelly and Soderberg

News: Loui Eriksson saw 21:29 worth of ice time in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Through the Bruins' first two games, Loui Eriksson -- who has yet to record a point -- has been skating on a line with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, though it remains to be seen if the trio will remain intact once top center David Krejci returns to Bruins' forward mix.

Bruins' Eriksson Skates With Kelly And Soderberg

News: In advance of Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Loui Eriksson was skating on a line with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, Joe Haggerty of csnne.com reports.
Analysis: David Krejci's undisclosed injury (which will cause him to miss at least three games) has caused the Bruins to shuffle up some of their lines, so the anticipated top trio of Loui Eriksson, Milan Lucic and Krejci is a potential combo that is on hold for now.

Loui Eriksson

Bruins' Eriksson Set To Face Islanders

News: Loui Eriksson is projected to work on a line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci on Tuesday against the Islanders, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: With Lucic back in action, the Bruins' top line is taking shape, with Loui Eriksson on track to fill the void created by the offseason departure of Jarome Iginla. While Eriksson is not the goal-scorer that Iginla is, he is a skilled two-way winger who should mesh well with Krejci and Lucic, with an uptick in production a likely outcome for the 29-year-old Swede. Eriksson notched 37 points in 61 games for the Bruins in 2013-14.

Loui Eriksson

Bruins' Eriksson Could Move To First Line

News: With Jarome Iginla having signed with the Avs, Loui Eriksson is viewed as the top candidate to move up to the Bruins' first line along with Milan Lucic and David Krejci, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Injuries slowed Loui Eriksson in his first season with Boston, with the winger recording modest totals of 10 goals and 37 points in 61 games. While he's not the shooter Iginla is, Eriksson is a savvy and skilled player who should mesh well with the playmaking Krejci and bruising Lucic. Moving up to the first line would no doubt be a major boost to Eriksson's fantasy value, though it would of course create a void on the Bruins' third line.

Boston's Eriksson: Two-Point Night

News: Loui Eriksson, who has had a relatively quiet postseason, scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Canadiens. He now has five points, including two goals, in 10 games.
Analysis: Honestly, we expected a bit more to this point, but perhaps this two-point effort is the start of something nice.

Bruins' Eriksson Closes Out On Good Note

News: Loui Eriksson notched a minus-2 rating but contributed a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Perhaps this little outburst to end the regular season is good news for head coach Claude Julien and his heavily favored playoff-bound Bruins. Previously a near-30 goal-scorer, Loui Eriksson just barely eeks out a 10-goal (37 points) campaign in his first season with Boston.

Bruins' Eriksson Tallies On Tuesday

News: Loui Eriksson scored a goal in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Wild.
Analysis: With the Bruins electing to rest center David Krejci, Loui Eriksson skated with Milan Lucic and Carl Soderberg on Tuesday, while also seeing 3:48 worth of power play ice time. With three games remaining on their regular season slate, look for the Bruins to continue to selectively rest key players (a group that might include Eriksson) in advance of the playoffs.

Opportunity Knocks For Bruins' Eriksson

News: With Jarome Iginla still out, Loui Eriksson is on track to continue to skate with Milan Lucic and David Krejci on Tuesday against the Wild.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson picked up four helpers while skating on the B's top line (featuring Lucic and Krejci) against the Flyers on Saturday, so he's definitely worth a shot in daily formats Tuesday, given that outcome.

Loui Eriksson

Bruins' Eriksson Tallies Four Helpers

News: Loui Eriksson assisted on four goals in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: With Jarome Iginla sitting out for the second time in three games, Loui Eriksson saw duty on the Bruins' top line and proved to be a seamless fit. Should Iginla be sidelined for further contests, Eriksson's promotion to the top line would make him an interesting commodity in just about any fantasy format.

Bruins' Eriksson Ends Goal Drought

News: Loui Eriksson scored his seventh goal of the year in Thursday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson hadn't found twine since back on Jan. 27, going nine games without a goal between then and Thursday. However, he did collect six assists in that span, so with eight points in his last 11 games, he's actually been relatively productive of late -- at least, compared to the rest of this season.

Bruins' Eriksson Good To Go

News: Coach Claude Julien said that Loui Eriksson (heel) is good to go for Thursday's game against the Capitals
Analysis: Loui Eriksson is thus in line to return to the B's third line Thursday, which also includes Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg. According to WEEI.com, the minor issue that kept Eriksson out of the team's lineup Tuesday was a heel infection. "Very minor heel injury," GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed. "A little infection in the heel that got aggravated when he put his heel in the boot."

Bruins' Eriksson Dealing With Minor Heel Issue

News: According to general manager Peter Chiarelli, Loui Eriksson was kept off the ice Tuesday and Wednesday due to a "very minor heel issue."
Analysis: Meanwhile, Loui Eriksson is expected back in the Bruins' lineup Thursday against the Capitals, barring any unforeseen setbacks.

Bruins' Eriksson Expected Back Thursday

News: Loui Eriksson, who is dealing with a minor issue, is expected back in the Bruins' lineup Thursday against the Capitals.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson missed Tuesday's game against the Panthers, with Jordan Caron filling in for him on the B's third line, but barring something unexpected, he's in line to return to action Thursday.

Bruins' Eriksson Out For Tuesday's Game

News: Coach Claude Julien indicated that Loui Eriksson has a "minor issue" that will sideline him Tuesday against the Panthers.

Bruins' Eriksson Skips Tuesday Morning Skate

News: Loui Eriksson (unspecified issue) was not on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate.
Analysis: No word yet on the reason for his absence, but with Loui Eriksson not on the ice Tuesday, Jordan Caron filled in on the B's third line at morning skate.

Bruins' Eriksson Notches Two Assists Sunday

News: Loui Eriksson collected two assists in Sunday's win over the Rangers.
Analysis: The second of Loui Eriksson's assists came while the Bruins were shorthanded, with Gregory Campbell capitalizing with the goal to give Boston a 4-2 lead. Concussion woes have been an unwelcome disruption to Eriksson's first season in Beantown, but he's been reasonably productive when healthy, with 22 points and a plus-11 rating over 40 games.

Bruins' Eriksson Nets Goal For Sweden

News: Loui Eriksson scored a second period goal to tie the score in Friday's win over Finland.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson has been working on what could be considered the second line for Sweden in the Olympics. He will look to help Sweden on Sunday when it faces Canada in the gold medal game.

Bruins' Eriksson Set To Play Saturday

News: Loui Eriksson (face) will play Saturday against the Senators, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Loui Eriksson missed Friday's practice for dental work after he took a high stick to the mouth in Thursday's overtime loss to the Blues. Now that he's all patched up, he'll be back on his usual spot on the third line for the Bruins before heading off to Russia to play for the Swedish team in the Winter Olympics.

Bruins' Eriksson Misses Practice Friday

News: Loui Eriksson (face) did not practice Friday.
Analysis: A high stick from the Blues' Maxim Lapierre caught Loui Eriksson in the face Thursday, and while he was able to finish out the game, he was not present at Friday's skate. Still, it seems likely he'll tough it out for Saturday's game against Ottawa, as he did against St. Louis.
