Eriksson (bone bruise) is “possible” to play in Tuesday’s preseason game.

Eriksson suffered a bone bruise while blocking a shot in last Tuesday’s preseason opener against the Oilers. The Canucks originally labeled Eriksson as “week-to-week,” but the Swedish winger was back on the ice for Monday’s morning skate. The veteran should be ready for the start of the 2019 regular season.

The Canucks signed Loui Eriksson to a six-year contract worth $36 million ($6.0M AAV).

Eriksson, 30, was a key part of the Tyler Seguin trade back in 2013 but the Bruins lost him for nothing. He is coming off of his best season with Boston, having collected 30 goals and 33 assists (63 points) in 82 games. Eriksson is a player who rarely misses games and is a threat to score 30 goals with 30 helpers every season. He should click well with fellow Swedes Henrik and Daniel Sedin.

Eriksson missed Tuesday's game but is set to return on Thursday. He is dealing with a minor injury in his heel. Eriksson has six goals and 16 assists (22 points) in 40 games this season. Eriksson had been healthy his entire career, but has struggled to stay at 100% this season.
