Loui Eriksson is confident he can contribute more this season.
"I thought it would be easier to adjust to a different system, but it took some time. It was definitely hard. It wasn't easy with those concussions, too," he said. "After the Olympics I felt better and I'd learned the system a little better and I also felt really good." He started to click with Carl Soderberg late in the year, but he's projected to skate with David Krejci and Milan Lucic on the top line this campaign. Aug 12 - 11:43 AM

Bruins coach Claude Julien suggested that Loui Eriksson will help fill the void left by Jarome Iginla.

That meshes with what Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said in June when Iginla walking as a free agent was still just a possibility. Eriksson had just 10 goals and 37 points in 61 games last season, but he also suffered two concussions. He'll have a prime opportunity to rebound if the Bruins give him a shot on their top line in 2014-15.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli envisions Loui Eriksson playing on the top line if he cannot re-sign Jarome Iginla.

No harm in figuring out the contingency plans now. Eriksson is an excellent two-way player who is plenty talented to play on the first line, despite scoring just 10 goals and recording 37 points in 61 games last season. "I have to hedge in case we don’t sign Jarome," Chiarelli said. "I have no problem if we have to put Loui on that top line. He’s played on top lines before and he’s played with the Sedins in the Olympics, and he was terrific. He’s better suited for an upper line. If that’s what we have to do then we’ll do it. I’m trying to be patient with this because I really feel at one point there’s going to be a player that will fit, and want to come here." Eriksson has scored at least 26 goals in four seasons, and he's been a 70-plus-point player in three. He could bounce back in a big way next season.

Loui Eriksson ended his three-game scoring drought on Saturday.

Eriksson had a goal and an assist to help the Bruins earn a 4-2 victory over Montreal in Game 5 of the second round. He had a rough, injury-filled 2013-14 campaign and has been a secondary scorer rather than an offensive leader in the playoffs with two goals and five points in 10 contests.

Loui Eriksson scored a goal in the Bruins' 4-2 win against Detroit on Saturday.

It was Eriksson's first goal of the 2014 playoffs. At the age of 28, Eriksson has only participated in 27 career postseason games and has a total of 11 points.

Coach Claude Julien feels that Loui Eriksson has played more like himself of late.

"Loui has just been good for us ever since he got over those injuries. He's a player that everybody from our organization saw him as being," Julien said. "He's great up front, he's a smart player, he manages the puck well, he doesn't make many mistakes, and he's a guy that's always been good in front of the net as well. I know we've got him on the half wall because we've got a different type of power play, but the 5-on-3, he's the designated guy to be in front of the net because he's good at it. So that's an area he excels in, and he did a great job." Eriksson finished the regular season with 17 points in his last 22 games. He has an assist and four shots in two playoff contests.
Apr 22 - 7:20 AM

Loui Eriksson scored a goal and an assist in the Boston Bruins' 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

While Eriksson's offensive numbers pale in comparison to Tyler Seguin's this season, he could still be a great fit for Boston, especially in the tight playoffs. He's been showing flourishes of being a true offensive threat, too, with seven points (two goals, five assists) in his last five games.
Apr 13 - 6:20 PM

Loui Eriksson, still available in 33% of Yahoo leagues, appears to be a strong pickup to close out fantasy championship weekend.

Eriksson has a goal and four assists over the past seven days, and the Bruins play on both Saturday and Sunday to cap off their season. The dynamic center has fallen a bit off the fantasy radar this season due to injuries and just 35 points through 59 games, but is a good bet to contribute against two non-playoff teams on the horizon.
Apr 11 - 7:32 PM

Loui Eriksson had four assists in Boston's 5-2 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday.

Milan Lucic scored two goals and registered an assist for the Bruins. David Krejci had his 17th goals and 49th assist in 78 games this season. Chris Kelly and Johnny Boychuk accounted for Boston's other two markers.
Apr 5 - 3:49 PM

Loui Eriksson was given a chance to play alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand on Thursday.

Eriksson was originally expected to spend the majority of the 2013-14 campaign on that line, but Boston was forced to alter its plans when Eriksson started dealing with concussion problems. Eriksson has eight goals and 30 points in 56 games this season.
Apr 5 - 8:56 AM

Loui Eriksson tallied the game-winning goal in Monday's 4-1 victory over Minnesota.

It was his first marker in his past six games. Eriksson has generated two goals and four assists in his last eight outings to give him 26 points in 47 matches this campaign.
Mar 18 - 7:36 AM

Loui Eriksson had an assist in Boston's 4-3 shootout win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Eriksson is now on a three-game point streak. Now that the concussion issues that plagued him earlier this season are comfortably in the rear-view mirror, he might finish the season on a high note. He has seven goals and 24 points in 42 games in 2013-14.
Mar 9 - 8:55 AM

Loui Eriksson scored a goal for Boston in Thursday's 3-0 win over Washington.

The goal was the seventh of the campaign for Eriksson, who has missed Boston's last game with a heel infection. Brad Marchand and Gregory Campbell also found the back of the net for the Bruins in the victory.
Mar 6 - 9:36 PM

Loui Eriksson will return to Boston's lineup on Thursday night.

He missed Tuesday's game with a heel infection from a cut that he sustained while playing for Sweden at the Winter Olympics. "I got a cut in Russia, when I actually went into the cold tub," Eriksson said. "I got a cut on my heel. So it started to get infected here the last couple of days. I'm on antibiotics right now, so I think it will be healing pretty good." He has 22 points in 40 games this season.
Mar 6 - 2:41 PM

Loui Eriksson will sit out Tuesday's contest due to a "minor issue."

Eriksson is still expected to play on Thursday. With the trade deadline on Wednesday, you have to wonder if the "minor issue" is more of an excuse to keep him out of the lineup ahead of a potential deal.
