Although he has been criticized for his play this season, Loui Eriksson is suprisingly the Bruins' third leading scorer.
He gets a lot of flack because he was the centerpiece in the Tyler Seguin trade, but Eriksson ranks third on the Bruins in scoring with 29 points and is just behind Boston's top forward David Krejci in average ice time per game. After starting the season slowly, Eriksson has been playing much better hockey as of late and that has pleased Boston bench boss Claude Julien. "He's [Eriksson] proven to us that he's very capable of playing in all kinds of situations. He's been a good power-play guy for us and also good on the penalty kill and reliable in those last minutes, so he's a smart player," said Julien. "He had a tough start with this team last year with those concussions. I think it set him back from what we're seeing today. I think we would have seen that last year, had he avoided those situations." If you are in a deep hockey pool and Eriksson has been disgarded, you may want to consider picking him up.

Loui Eriksson scored his 11th goal of the year in Boston's 3-1 win over Dallas on Tuesday.

He led all Bruins forwards with 21:25 of ice time, including 3:49 on the power play and 4:49 on the penalty kill, during the contest. "I thought our line had a good game," said Eriksson, who was traded to Boston from the Stars in the Tyler Seguin deal. "We were playing real well together and winning pucks down in their end, making plays. It was definitely nice to get the win."

After taking line rushes, it appears that Loui Eriksson is in for the Boston Bruins.

He was dealing with a hand injury that might limit him in some ways, so make that note when considering a very last-minute lineup decision on this busy Saturday.

Loui Eriksson is participating in line rushes in the pre-game skate.

He may in fact play in Saturday afternoon's game against the Flyers. If he does, Craig Cunningham could be a healthy scratch.

Given that Loui Eriksson (hand) seemed limited in handling and shooting the puck Friday, it is unlcear if he will be able to play against the Flyers Saturday afternoon.

Eriksson sustained a right hand injury during Wednesday's contest, missed Thursday's game but felt better Friday and may play against the Flyers Saturday afternoon. We will try and update Erikssson's status prior to game time.

Loui Eriksson didn't play Thursday after getting slashed in the hand-wrist area on Wednesday night versus Pittsburgh.

It isn't believed to be a long-term injury. "Those things some times change day-to-day if it doesn't heal right, but right now it seems to be a short-term injury," said Eriksson. Reilly Smith skated with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly in Eriksson's place against New Jersey.

Loui Eriksson entered the Christmas break as Boston's hottest player.

He has registered six goals, including two overtime winners, and two assists in his past eight contests. "I think he’s skating better," coach Claude Julien said. "When you're confident, a lot of things come easy to you; when you're not, you're skating out there sometimes you feel like you've got a piano on your back and your sluggish and everything else. But right now I think he's feeling it."

Loui Eriksson has four goals and four assists in his last 12 games.

His offense has been tied to success for the Bruins over that span, as the club has posted a 4-0-2 record in games where he has recorded at least one point. In the outings where he was held pointless, Boston had a mark of 0-5-1. Eriksson has seven goals and 19 points in 34 contests.

Loui Eriksson shifted lines in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo.

He opened the game with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, but was back to skating with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly late in the second period. Then in overtime, Lucic picked up an assist on Eriksson's game-winning tally. "I'm gonna tell you: Loui was a real good player (last night). That's all I'm gonna say," said coach Claude Julien. "Wherever he was, he was good. He's played well. He's played well, he's one of the guys that's really played well for us. So it's something we're trying. We're trying to find, you know, some solutions to our lines. And as I mentioned (yesterday) morning, you put him there (on the Krejci line). It was OK; (they) worked hard. But (it) didn't have the same chemistry. That's what I've got to do as a coach. I've got to be able to move them around when I have to." Eriksson also had an assist in the contest.

Loui Eriksson may get a chance on the Bruins' top line Sunday against Buffalo.

Seth Griffith has hit the wall and Eriksson has been dynamite lately playing with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly. Boston coach Claude Julien has been hesitant to separate Eriksson from Soderberg and Kelly as the three of them have been the Bruins' best line the past few weeks but he does need to get his top unit going as well. Keep an eye on this situation. Although Eriksson has had considerable success on the team's third unit, it is always better from a fantasy perspective to play with the big boys.

Loui Eriksson scored at 1:30 of overtime Wednesday night to give the Boston Bruins a 3-2 triumph over the Wild in Minnesota.

Soderberg's goal also was his sixth of the season and he assisted on Eriksson's OT goal. Soderberg now has 15 assists on the season. Patrice Bergeron picked up the Bruins' other goal. It was his sixth of the season, as well.
