Loui Eriksson knows that he could be traded later this month, but he's trying to stay focused on playing for the Bruins for the time being.

"I'm just trying to focus on my game and try to help the team as much as I can and play good," Eriksson said. "All the other things I can't control right now. All I can do is just go out there and play hockey and help the team. That's all I'm going to focus on." He is a pending unrestricted free agent with a partial no-trade clause.

The Minnesota Wild have reportedly spoken to the Boston Bruins about acquiring Loui Eriksson.

The Bruins are in discussion with Eriksson's camp about locking him up to a long-term contract, but nothing appears to be imminent. Boston is in the thick of the playoff race, so trading away a key piece may not happen. It'll be interesting to see what happens ff they can't re-sign the pending unrestricted free agent by the Feb. 29 trade deadline. The Wild are likely just one of many teams who've contacted the Bruins for Eriksson's services.

It appears that the Boston Bruins and Loui Eriksson are in "preliminary" discussions about a contract extension, according to Darren Dreger.

Dreger notes that Eriksson is likely looking for an AAV of at least $6M, a nice bump over his current $4.25M cap hit. He's in the final year of a six year pact originally signed with Dallas. Now in his age-30 season, Eriksson is having easily his best yet with Boston since the trade with 15 goals and 37 points in 44 games.

Loui Eriksson scored on a power play in the Boston Bruins' 3-2 loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia Wednesday night.

It was Eriksson's 15th goal of the season. It gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead after two periods before the Flyers rallied with two goals to win in the third period. Kevan Miller scored earlier in the second period for the Bruins. It was his third goal of the season.

Loui Eriksson netted his 14th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Washington.

He got the Bruins on the board during the second period shortly after Evgeny Kuznetsov gave the Capitals a 2-0 lead. Eriksson has three goals and six assists in his last nine contests.
Jan 6 - 7:39 AM

Loui Eriksson skated with Patrice Bergeron on Thursday.

Seth Griffith was the third member of the line, while Ryan Spooner centered the second line between Matt Beleskey and Brett Connolly. The Bruins had to shuffle their lines going into Friday's Winter Classic because of David Krejci's injury and Brad Marchand's suspension. Eriksson played well with Spooner and Beleskey on Tuesday night and that could be an option for coach Claude Julien if his new combinations aren't working.

Loui Eriksson had two assists in the Bruins' 6-3 loss to Buffalo on Saturday.

Eriksson has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. After being limited to just 47 points in 2014-15, he already has 30 points in 34 contests this season. It seems Eriksson has returned to a form we haven't seen from him since 2011-2012.

When the Bruins face off against the Sabres Saturday night make sure both Loui Eriksson and Brad Marchand are active.

Both Bruin forwards had a tremendous amount of success against Buffalo last season. Eriksson scored two goals and had five points in four games, while Marchand registered four points. The teams have yet to play this campaign.

Eriksson has 13 goals and 28 points in 32 games in '15-16. He's scored a point in each of his last three contests.

Loui Eriksson earned an assist in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Pittsburgh.

Eriksson hasn't gone more than two games without posting a point this season. He has 11 goals and 15 assists in 30 matches.

The Bruins have now established two pairs that populate their top two lines.

For many seasons Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand were one pair and David Krejci and Milan Lucic were the other. With Lucic gone to the Kings, Krejci needed another partner. For the most part, that partner is now Loui Eriksson and the two have been thriving this season. "Loui is pretty good and he’s a smart player so he can control the puck on his backhand and forehand pretty much the same way," Krejci. "It’s been a lot of fun playing with him and he’s playing with a lot of confidence. It’s seemed like we’ve clicked together, playing the PK together and feeding off each other and finding ways to score goals. Hopefully we can keep it going." Needless to say, Eriksson, who is on pace for 33 goals, is well worth rostering.

Loui Eriksson scored on a shorthanded breakaway to spark a three-goal third period Wednesday night for the Boston Bruins in a 3-1 victory over the Canadiens in Montreal.

Eriksson, whose goal tied the game at 1-1 at 7:53 of the third period, has been playing terrific hockey this season. His goal Wednesday was his 11th of the season. Less than a minute later, Landon Ferraro notched his third goal of the season to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead. Patrice Bergeron cemented the victory at 13:42 with his ninth of the season.

Loui Eriksson scored his 10th goal of the season Monday night in a game where he and the Boston Bruins squandered two leads and were edged 3-2 by the visiting Nashville Predators.

Eriksson's goal, on a power play at 10:53 of the second period, gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead. Kevan Miller opened the scoring at 4:13 of the first period, nudging Boston to a 1-0 lead. The Bruins failed to earn a point for the first time in nine games.

With a pair of assists, Loui Eriksson's point streak has reached four games during Friday's 5-4 loss to Calgary.

Though they were merely a pair of secondary helpers, Eriksson has been hot of late and appears to have turned the corner offensively. He's now up to 14 assists and 23 points over 24 games thus far. Not too shabby at all.
