Loui Eriksson (lower body) isn't ready to play, so he won't travel with Vancouver to Chicago.

He was slated to miss one-to-two weeks, so this isn't surprising. Eriksson didn't skate on Monday.
Mar 20 - 2:22 PM

Loui Eriksson (lower body) will be sidelined for one-to-two weeks, according to coach Willie Desjardins.

Eriksson has been a big disappointment this season with 11 goals and 24 points in 65 games.
Mar 7 - 2:15 PM

Loui Eriksson suffered a leg injury Sunday and did not return.

Eriksson is expected to be out at least a couple of games. Nikolay Goldobin replaced him on the power play and on the second line. Eriksson has only 11 goals and 24 points this season so the injury should not have any effect on your lineup.
Mar 6 - 9:54 AM

Loui Eriksson and the Vancouver Canucks were shut out, 4-0, by the Pens on Tuesday night.

Eriksson finished the game with no shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in 14:52 of ice time. Eriksson has been a colossal disappointment since signing his big free agent contract this summer. He has just 11 goals and 11 assists in 57 games this season. His fantasy stock has been on a sharp decline for a while and it doesn't appear to be going back up anytime soon.

Loui Eriksson was the only Canuck to put the puck in the net in Sunday's 2-1 loss against New Jersey.

Eriksson's 10th goal of the year, assisted by each of the Sedins, at least gave Vancouver a point in the overtime loss. Eriksson's first point in three games gives him 10 goals and 20 points in 45 games this season.
Jan 15 - 11:23 PM

Loui Eriksson scored his ninth goal of the season Friday night.

He was attempting to pass the puck, but it ended up deflecting off a Calgary Flames defender and went into the net. Eriksson hasn't received many bounces in his favor this season, but that was certainly one that did. He has 19 points in 41 games.
Jan 7 - 11:29 AM

Loui Eriksson scored a goal and registered an assist in Vancouver's 3-2 overtime win against Anaheim on Friday.

Eriksson has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has eight goals and 18 points in 37 contests in 2016-17.

Loui Eriksson scored a power play goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Eriksson put his 12-game goalless drought to bed in the process. It was also a rare goal for the Canucks' abysmal power play that is clicking at just 13.5 percent in 2016-17. Eriksson has seven goals and 16 assists this season.

Loui Eriksson picked up a couple of assists in a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday.

The two assists are Eriksson’s 299th and 300th career NHL assists. He was considered as being a great free-agent pickup for the Canucks but he has really struggled to form any sort of consistency with the Sedin twins, resulting in him now playing with Brandon Sutter and Markus Granlund. Eriksson now has 14 points in 31 games this season. Brandon Sutter, Luca Sbisa, Alex Burrows and Bo Horvat were the goalscorers for the Canucks in this contest.

He hasn't been spectacular, but Loui Eriksson is heating up, including being a part of the Vancouver Canucks' 3-2 shootout win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Eriksson now has points in three of his last four games (three goals). Compare that to his previous 18 games with Vancouver, where he only managed two goals and four assists for six points, and you wonder if the winger is turning a corner.

Loui Eriksson was able to get on the board with a goal, but the Vancouver Canucks ultimately fell 4-3 in overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.

Eriksson generated his third goal (thus his seventh point) in his 19th game of the 2016-17 season. It would probably help if he started firing more SOG (just 33 in 19 GP, less than two per contest), but that's been a complaint more than a few times during the Swede's up-and-down career.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 02:46:00 AM

Loui Eriksson scored his second goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over Dallas.

Mark that two goals in three games after going goalless in his first 13 games with the Canucks. He now has six points in 16 games this season, and we could be seeing the start of a turnaround for the veteran winger.

Although it's still early, it appears that the off-season signing of Loui Eriksson is a bad one.

Eriksson will get $36 million over six seasons. The Canucks thought he would be a perfect match for the Sedin twins but have discovered he plays the same way as Daniel does on the power play. "Him and Danny (Sedin) do the same thing," coach Willie Desjardins reasoned when asked why Eriksson hasn’t been playing with the twins on the power play. "That’s the same spot, they both play. We tried (Eriksson with the Sedins) early where we had Danny high, on the backside.But Danny and Hank (Sedin) have always had so much success together, that’s a tough combination to break up, when they’ve been so good for years. So then you move (Danny) back down. Where do you put Loui? His spot is in front of the net, that low spot. It’s about trying to find the right mix, I guess." It's a shame that their scouts could not have seen this over the last 10 years.

Loui Eriksson will be back with Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin on Monday night.

The Canucks' big free-agent signing has been ice cold out of the gate with no goals and four assists in 12 contests.
