It's looking like Loui Eriksson and the Boston Bruins won't be able to agree to a new contract.
It sounds like the length of the deal is the issue as Eriksson is looking for a six-year deal while Boston doesn't want to go over four years. Eriksson will turn 31 on July 17 so we can see why the Bruins would balk at that length. Jun 22 - 6:56 PM

Loui Eriksson’s agent and the Bruins have stayed in touch, though there has not been a contract offer.

Eriksson is set to be an unrestricted free agent. After a 30-goal, 63-point season, he’s likely due a raise from the $4.25 average annual value of his last contract. "(GM) Don (Sweeney) and I have been in regular communication," agent J.P. Barry said. "We were expecting a new offer from the club at some point but we haven’t received one yet. I’m sure we will speak again prior to the draft about their intentions."

An unidentified NHL general manager expects one of the bigger free agent wingers to land with the Canucks this offseason, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Friedman says that the "word out of the combine" was that Loui Eriksson would go there. The Canucks finished 29th in goals per game this season. They will need much more than one marquee free agent to turn things around.

Boston GM Don Sweeney indicated that he has had some positive contract discussions with the agent for Loui Eriksson over the past few weeks.

Eriksson is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st and the Bruins seem interested in re-signing the winger. That said, the free agent signing date is looming and Eriksson may wish to dip his toe in the free-agent water as he is allegedly looking for a 5-6 year deal netting out $30-35 million after a 63-point campaign. The Bruins may not be willing to go there. Stay tuned. This situation is fluid.

The Boston Bruins are still engaged in contract negotiations with Loui Eriksson.

"I've been in discussions with Loui and I think I have a pretty good idea where they would like to be at, and we'll see if we can find common ground," said Bruins GM Don Sweeney. "But we have had ongoing discussion on that front. As I've said, I've always respected Loui as a player. He had a fabulous year and we would love to be able to retain him." Eriksson's first two seasons with Boston were rough, but he bounced back in 2015-16 with 30 goals and 63 points in 82 contests. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Loui Eriksson could leave the Bruins as an unrestricted free agent in July.

Boston could not come to an agreement with Eriksson before the trade deadline, but chose to keep him on the roster.

Loui Eriksson tallied his 30th goal of the season in Thursday's 5-2 victory versus Detroit.

Apr 8 - 7:36 AM

Loui Eriksson now has points in four of his last five games with his 29th goal of the season during Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to Carolina.

Eriksson has had two other seasons with at least 29 goals, but only 2008-09 saw him go beyond with 36 while with Dallas. He now has 61 points in 80 games this season as well.
Apr 5 - 11:46 PM

Thanks to his 28th goal and 59th point of the season during Friday's 6-5 win over St. Louis, Loui Eriksson is on the cusp of his fifth 60-point campaign.

Eriksson notched at least 63 points from 2008-2012, all of which was with Dallas. He had just 32 goals and 84 points with Boston coming into this campaign, so it seems fair to say the talented winger has re-found his groove. Even if he's shooting 16.2%.

Loui Eriksson might play as a center on Tuesday night because of an injury to Ryan Spooner.

He skated between Frank Vatrano and Jimmy Hayes at Monday's practice. "We'll see," said Eriksson. "I took some faceoffs last game. I think I had one shift as a centerman last game. I had a few games in Dallas. It's a little bit different, but I kind of liked the work you have to put in to be a centerman and I'll try to do my best."
