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. The move didn't pay off as the Bruins didn't qualify for the playoffs and now he can walk with the team getting nothing in return. Eriksson generated 30 goals and 63 points in 82 games.
Apr 11 - 9:58 AM

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

Eriksson has joined teammates Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand on Boston's 30-goal list this year. He also added an assist to give him 63 points in 81 games. Eriksson has registered three goals and three assists over a four-game scoring streak.
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%.
Apr 2 - 12:38 AM

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."
Mar 28 - 3:04 PM

Loui Eriksson had an assist in Boston's 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers Wednesday night.

Eriksson has 27 goals and 55 points in 74 contests this season. While that pales in comparison to what he did at his height with the Dallas Stars, this is still the best season he's had since coming to Boston.
Mar 24 - 10:11 AM

Loui Eriksson scored a shorthanded goal on Tuesday night against San Jose.

He has scored in three straight games, while contributing two assists as well. Eriksson has 27 goals and 54 points in 71 games this campaign.
Mar 16 - 7:34 AM

Loui Eriksson had his hands on each of Boston's goals as they beat the Islanders 3-1 on Saturday.

Eriksson got the scoring start with 84 seconds to go in the first while on the power play. He'd later collect assists on David Pastrnak's pair, giving the veteran forward three points on the afternoon. Eriksson's now up to 26 goals and 53 points this season.
Mar 12 - 3:54 PM

Loui Eriksson scored his 25th goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina.

His power-play marker halted a three-game scoring skid. Eriksson has cooled down offensively with two goals in the last nine games.
Mar 11 - 7:22 AM

Loui Eriksson didn't end up being traded before Monday's deadline, so now the Bruins could lose him for nothing in free agency.

"The deal had to be right," GM Don Sweeney said of the offers he got for Eriksson. "For me, Loui Eriksson is an important part of what we're doing now, to be in the position were in. For me, the deal didn't work." Teams were unwilling to meet Boston's price and the Bruins have been unwilling to meet Eriksson's price in contract talks.
Mar 1 - 9:34 AM

Just hours ahead of Monday's trade deadline, Loui Eriksson is on the ice for practice.

With just a touch under three hours before the deadline it's a toss up between whether or not Eriksson will be traded. Eriksson is a UFA at the end of the season, and the Bruins are said to be looking for both a quality prospect and roster player in return for his services.
Feb 29 - 12:05 PM

Per Darren Dreger, teams are still balking at Boston's asking price for Loui Eriksson.

The Bruins want "a top player and prospect" for the impending 30-year-old UFA. Eriksson carries a cap hit of $4.25M with another $25K in real salary this season. He's also posted 23 goals and 48 points in 63 games thus far, with eight goals and nine points coming in February. It'll only take one team to justify the asking price.
Feb 29 - 10:43 AM

Per Darren Dreger, Boston has made their "last offer" to Loui Eriksson ahead of Monday's trade deadline.

Dreger believes the offer is four-years at $5.25M per, or $21M overall. Which "could be a year or two and just under $1 mil per year light." That's commensurate with the reports we've been hearing that Eriksson wants a six-year, $36M contract. Time will tell as the plot thickens!
Feb 28 - 7:57 PM

Bruins GM Don Sweeney has made it clear that "[Loui] Eriksson is absolutely playing" in Sunday's tilt with Tampa Bay.

Sweeney has also noted that his primary preference is to extended the talented winger, so it's no surprise that the Bruins aren't playing it cautious in the final evening ahead of the trade deadline.
