Loui Eriksson suffered a knee injury 2:57 into the first period Saturday and did not return.

Consider the forward day-to-day for now but he is questionable at best for Tuesday's encounter in Ottawa. Eriksson has only one assist in four games this season and will be hard-pressed to earn his six-year/$36 million deal that he inked before the start of the 2016-17 season. He has only 24 points last season in 65 games.

Loui Eriksson hopes to bounce back this season after he posted just 24 points in 65 games last year.

However, it may be difficult for him to secure a spot on a scoring line. Vancouver signed Sam Gagner and Thomas Vanek in the summer and Brock Boeser appears to be poised to claim a top-six forward spot. That could place Eriksson on the third line going into 2017-18.

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.
