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. Feb 19 - 3:11 AM

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.

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.

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.
Jan 10 - 12:50 PM

Given that Loui Eriksson (hand) seemed limited in handling and shooting the puck Friday, it is unlcear if he will be able to play against the Flyers Saturday afternoon.

Eriksson sustained a right hand injury during Wednesday's contest, missed Thursday's game but felt better Friday and may play against the Flyers Saturday afternoon. We will try and update Erikssson's status prior to game time.

Loui Eriksson didn't play Thursday after getting slashed in the hand-wrist area on Wednesday night versus Pittsburgh.

It isn't believed to be a long-term injury. "Those things some times change day-to-day if it doesn't heal right, but right now it seems to be a short-term injury," said Eriksson. Reilly Smith skated with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly in Eriksson's place against New Jersey.
Jan 9 - 9:28 AM

Jan 8 - 10:16 AM

Loui Eriksson earned a pair of assists in Monday's 5-2 victory against Detroit.

With Patrice Bergeron out of the lineup, the trio of Eriksson, Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly skated as Boston's second line. They combined for two goals and five assists in the match. Eriksson now has 23 points in 37 contests.
