Loui Eriksson scored a goal and an assist in the Boston Bruins' 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.
While Eriksson's offensive numbers pale in comparison to Tyler Seguin's this season, he could still be a great fit for Boston, especially in the tight playoffs. He's been showing flourishes of being a true offensive threat, too, with seven points (two goals, five assists) in his last five games. Apr 13 - 6:20 PM

Loui Eriksson, still available in 33% of Yahoo leagues, appears to be a strong pickup to close out fantasy championship weekend.

Eriksson has a goal and four assists over the past seven days, and the Bruins play on both Saturday and Sunday to cap off their season. The dynamic center has fallen a bit off the fantasy radar this season due to injuries and just 35 points through 59 games, but is a good bet to contribute against two non-playoff teams on the horizon.
Apr 11 - 7:32 PM

Loui Eriksson had four assists in Boston's 5-2 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday.

Milan Lucic scored two goals and registered an assist for the Bruins. David Krejci had his 17th goals and 49th assist in 78 games this season. Chris Kelly and Johnny Boychuk accounted for Boston's other two markers.
Apr 5 - 3:49 PM

Loui Eriksson was given a chance to play alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand on Thursday.

Eriksson was originally expected to spend the majority of the 2013-14 campaign on that line, but Boston was forced to alter its plans when Eriksson started dealing with concussion problems. Eriksson has eight goals and 30 points in 56 games this season.
Apr 5 - 8:56 AM

Loui Eriksson tallied the game-winning goal in Monday's 4-1 victory over Minnesota.

It was his first marker in his past six games. Eriksson has generated two goals and four assists in his last eight outings to give him 26 points in 47 matches this campaign.
Mar 18 - 7:36 AM

Loui Eriksson had an assist in Boston's 4-3 shootout win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Eriksson is now on a three-game point streak. Now that the concussion issues that plagued him earlier this season are comfortably in the rear-view mirror, he might finish the season on a high note. He has seven goals and 24 points in 42 games in 2013-14.
Mar 9 - 8:55 AM

Loui Eriksson scored a goal for Boston in Thursday's 3-0 win over Washington.

The goal was the seventh of the campaign for Eriksson, who has missed Boston's last game with a heel infection. Brad Marchand and Gregory Campbell also found the back of the net for the Bruins in the victory.
Mar 6 - 9:36 PM

Loui Eriksson will return to Boston's lineup on Thursday night.

He missed Tuesday's game with a heel infection from a cut that he sustained while playing for Sweden at the Winter Olympics. "I got a cut in Russia, when I actually went into the cold tub," Eriksson said. "I got a cut on my heel. So it started to get infected here the last couple of days. I'm on antibiotics right now, so I think it will be healing pretty good." He has 22 points in 40 games this season.
Mar 6 - 2:41 PM

Loui Eriksson will sit out Tuesday's contest due to a "minor issue."

Eriksson is still expected to play on Thursday. With the trade deadline on Wednesday, you have to wonder if the "minor issue" is more of an excuse to keep him out of the lineup ahead of a potential deal.
Mar 4 - 12:17 PM

Boston coach Claude Julien thinks that Loui Eriksson can build off his strong play from the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"Loui was one of (Sweden's) best players," Julien said. "He played on the top line. He did a great job. When we left here, I had really enjoyed Loui's progression from his last injury. And going to Sochi and watching him play with his team, he was even better there. So I'm looking forward to seeing him back in our lineup, and if he picks up where he left off over there, I think we're going to get a pretty good idea of what he's capable of bringing." Eriksson's first season in Boston has been derailed by concussions, but he is worth watching down the stretch. He has six goals and 20 points in 37 outings.
Feb 26 - 6:53 AM

Loui Eriksson generated a goal and an assist in Sweden's 5-0 win over Slovenia on Wednesday.

The win puts Sweden into the semifinals of the Olympics Games, where they will play Finland on Friday. The points were Eriksson's first of the tournament.
Feb 19 - 1:03 PM

Loui Eriksson is slated to begin the Olympics on Sweden's top line alongside Nicklas Backstrom and Daniel Sedin.

There's a debate to be had about whether this actually represents the top forward trio for the Swedes since the group of Henrik Zetterberg, Gabriel Landeskog and Alexander Steen could certainly be the best combo. Gustav Nyquist, Patrick Berglund and Daniel Alfredsson will form a solid third unit while Carl Hagelin, Marcus Kruger and Jimmie Ericsson will round out the forwards.

Loui Eriksson missed practice Friday as he needed dental work to fix some teeth that were pushed in after getting a high stick to the mouth in Thursday night's game against St. Louis.

The good news is that Eriksson should be fine to play Saturday afternoon against Ottawa in the Bruins' last game before the Olympic break. Erkisson is then off to Sochi to play for Sweden. Until Eriksson regains his role as a top six forward in Boston, however, his fantasy value for the rest of the NHL season remains limited.
Feb 8 - 8:30 AM

Although Loui Eriksson seems to be rounding into game form, Reilly Smith is showing no signs of slowing down and giving up his second-line position.

So for now and for the immediate future Eriksson remains a third liner. He will once again skate alongside Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg. Eriksson owners are going to have to exhibit a lot of patience going forward.
Feb 1 - 9:36 AM

Loui Eriksson earned an assist in Thursday's loss to Montreal to extend his point streak to three games.

He feels he is getting back on track after missing a sizable chunk of the season because of two concussions in 45 days. "I feel good. The last couple of games I think we've been playing well, our line. It's better and better, every game I've played, so it’s a good feeling," said Eriksson before Thursday's contest. "I just hadn't played in a while, so it was just the timing and being able to handle the speed of the game. It will come. The games I've played, the more confident I'm getting. It's a good feeling." He has 18 points in 33 games.
