Loui Eriksson will miss the remainder of the season due to a fractured rib.
Eriksson had 10 goals and 23 points in 50 contests this season. He inked a six-year, $36 million contract in the summer of 2016 and so far that deal has been a huge disappointment for Vancouver. Hopefully he'll be healthy next season and bounce back, but we can't recommend betting on that happening in fantasy leagues. Mar 1 - 4:46 PM

Loui Eriksson (upper body) likely won't be back for another seven-to-10 days.

Eriksson wasn't able to play on Monday due to the injury. He has 10 goals and 23 points in 50 contests in 2017-18.

Loui Eriksson won't play Monday night because of an upper-body injury.

Consider Eriksson day-to-day for now. He has 10 goals and 23 points in 50 games this season, which is actually better than his scoring pace from last year even though it still isn't anything to be excited about.

Loui Eriksson scored two goals in a 6-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Eriksson ended a seven-game point slump Saturday with his former Boston teammates in town. The Canucks also got goals from Nic Dowd, Sven Baertschi, Bo Horvat, and Daniel Sedin in the win. Eriksson now has 10 markers and 22 points in 47 games this season.
Feb 18 - 1:20 AM

Loui Eriksson potted two goals with an assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-2 victory against the Kings.

Eriksson is starting to come alive lately after a dismal first few months to open the season. He had just five goals and 13 points over his first 31 games, but Eriksson has managed three goals with six points across the past six outings. He'll need to do a little more over a longer period to re-gain the trust of fantasy owners in standard leagues, but he's certainly worth a look in deeper pools.
Jan 24 - 1:42 AM

Loui Eriksson seems to have turned the corner from a disastrous 2016-17 season with 11 points in his first 15 games this season.

We pushed him to go after the puck harder — which he has done," said Canucks head coach Travis Green. "He has put himself in positions and in good spots a lot of time and is playing good hockey right now." Eriksson’s 24 points last year were the lowest since his rookie season, but is currently well on pace to break the 50-point plateau again.

Loui Eriksson registered an assist in the Canucks' 5-2 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

Eriksson has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He has three goals and nine points in 13 contests in 2017-18.

Loui Eriksson scored a goal in Vancouver's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

Eriksson opened the scoring in the contest. He has accounted for three goals and four assists in his last seven outings. Eriksson has eight points in 12 appearances this year.

Loui Eriksson registered an assist in Vancouver's 3-2 win against Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Eriksson was playing in his second game since returning from a knee injury. He has two assists in six contests in 2017-18.

The Vancouver Canucks were blanked by the San Jose Sharks by a score of 5-0 on Saturday night.

The Canucks could get nothing going offensively tonight. The lone bright spot was Eriksson who returning from a knee injury had a team high five shots on goal. Unfortunately, the 32-year-old Eriksson has only one point through five games this season.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 12:40:00 AM

Head coach Travis Green has confirmed that Loui Eriksson will draw back into the lineup tonight.

Eriksson has been out since October 14th due to a knee injury. Green also confirmed that Jake Virtanen and Brendan Gaunce would be scratched. Eriksson has one point in four games before getting injured.
Sat, Nov 11, 2017 02:32:00 PM

According to the Vancouver Canucks' website, Loui Eriksson has been taken off of the injured reserve.

Eriksson injured his knee on October 14th against the Calgary Flames. Before the injury, the 32-year-old Swede had one point in four games. He's definitely someone to keep an eye on with the Canucks playing so well lately.
Sat, Nov 11, 2017 02:12:00 PM

Loui Eriksson (knee sprain) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks of action.

Eriksson was injured in the first period of Saturday's game and he did not return to the lineup. The 32-year-old has no goals and one assist in four games this season. He should be back sometime in late November. He can be dropped in all leagues.
Tue, Oct 17, 2017 06:00:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 09:45:00 AM

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.
