Loui Eriksson scored Boston's only goal in their 2-1 shootout loss to Washington on Friday night.
Eriksson opened the scoring at the 4:06 mark of the first period, but Washington answered late in the game to force overtime. The Bruins missed both their shootout attempts, while Washington converted on both of theirs. Eriksson scored 22 goals and 47 points in 81 games. It was nice to see the 30-year-old stay healthy for the majority of last season, but scoring under 50 points was definitely disappointing for a player with his talent. The Bruins need him to produce even more now that they've made several changes to their roster this off-season. Oct 2 - 10:57 PM

Loui Eriksson wants to silence his critics and prove he can play a Bruins' style of hockey.

The 30-year-old winger will be an unrestricted free agent come July and he wants to show the Boston brass that not only can he score, but he can play in all three zones. Eriksson seems interested in staying in Beantown and will get the chance to earn a top-six role this season. Look for him to get trials on both right and left wings alongside pivots David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron, although his probable landing spot could be with Bergeron and Brad Marchand on the Bruins' second line. Eriksson should score 25 goals and register 55 points which makes him a nice later round fantasy pick.

Loui Eriksson has played very well for Sweden at the IIHF World Hockey Championships currently taking place in Prague.

Eriksson is tied for second in tournament scoring with three goals and seven points after five games. He has been a disappointment in Boston the past two seasons and has been relegated to third-line duty for much of that time but he may get a chance to play in the top six again in 2015-16. If he does, Eriksson could be a nice under-the-radar fantasy pick.

Loui Eriksson opened the scoring in Boston's 3-2 win over Florida on Tuesday night.

He potted his 20th goal late in the first period. Florida scored twice in the second and Boston answered with two markers in the third to claim the victory. Eriksson produced six goals and nine points in 15 games during March.
Apr 1 - 10:25 AM

Loui Eriksson scored the only Boston goal Tuesday as the Bruins dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Buffalo.

Eriksson's 18th of the campaign ends a three-game pointless drought and brings his season total to 40 points in 69 games. Adam McQuaid and Carl Soderberg drew assists on the lone Boston tally in the loss.
Mar 17 - 10:50 PM

Loui Eriksson scored his 15th goal of the season, but he also missed his shootout attempt in Boston's 4-3 shootout loss to Calgary on Thursday night.

It was Eriksson's second goal in five games, and also his fourth point over that span. He also led all shooters with seven shots during his 20:18 of ice time, over six minutes of which was spent on special teams. Eriksson now ranks second on the team in points with 36.
Mar 5 - 11:23 PM

Loui Eriksson scored in the Bruins 4-3 SO loss to Oilers on Wednesday.

It was his 13th goal of the season and snapped a four game goal-less drought. The slick Swede has just 13 goals and 32 points in 56 games for the Bruins this season. He hasn't really found a good line to fit on with the Bruins in his short tenure there yet. Reilly Smith and David Pastrnak scored the other goals for Boston.

Loui Eriksson scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Eriksson's goal came with just under eight minutes remaining in the game. The 29-year-old has 12 goals and 31 points in 51 games this season. The Bruins' forward hasn't put up big offensive numbers since the 2011-12 season when he was a member of the Dallas Stars.
Feb 8 - 9:20 AM

Loui Eriksson will return to the Bruins lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Eriksson took a nasty hit from behind by Los Angeles Kings’ defenseman Robyn Regehr on Saturday night and was forced to leave the game. He missed Monday’s practice as well but was able to participate in the morning skate Wednesday and is well enough to play versus the Rangers. He will skate with his usual linemates, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, so get him back in your lineup as you normally would.
Feb 4 - 7:44 PM

Loui Eriksson (neck) took part in Tuesday's practice.

Eriksson isn't dealing with concussion-related symptoms. "I didn’t feel any headache at all when I got hit," he said. "I just felt my neck start burning. I was a little scared that something happened with it, but as I went off it felt better and it's been good today, so that's a good sign." Although nothing is set in stone, it wouldn't be shocking to see him play Wednesday.
Feb 3 - 4:23 PM

Loui Eriksson (neck) is expected to play Wednesday.

"Loui's doing OK," coach Claude Julien said. "He's stiff from that neck thing. He's expected to be OK for the next game. But it wasn't as severe as it could have been. But it was a neck injury." Eriksson was injured when he was hit from behind by Los Angeles defenseman Robyn Regehr on Saturday. He left the game and didn't practice on Monday.

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.
Jan 31 - 9:00 AM

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."
Jan 21 - 8:18 AM

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.
Jan 10 - 1:02 PM

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.
