Eriksson (concussion) will return to the Bruins lineup tonight says head coach Claude Julien.

Eriksson missed the last 15 games with a concussion that he suffered on December 7. He is expected to start the game on the Bruins third line with Carl Soderberg and Ryan Spooner. He has totalled 14 points (5G / 9A) with a plus-8 in 24 games this season. He is owned in 66% of Yahoo leagues. Eriksson would be a consistent producer that would provide depth at both LW and RW.

Loui Eriksson out indefinitely with a concussion after taking head shot from John Scott.

Concussions are a tricky injury to offer timetables for so take his injury day-by-day. This is a tough break for a player who has only missed a total of three games in the last five seasons. In the meantime this offers a value boost to Brad Marchand who shifts back to the second line alongside Patrice Bergeron.

Loui Eriksson was injured and did not return on Wednesday following a high hit by John Scott.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli issued an update following the game, saying that “Loui is staying overnight in Buffalo for precautionary reasons. He is expected to return to Boston (today).” It is safe to assume that Eriksson will not play tonight vs. San Jose.

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, July 4, that the club has acquired forwards Loui Eriksson, Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and defenseman Joe Morrow from the Dallas Stars in exchange for forwards Rich Peverley, Tyler Seguin and defenseman Ryan Button.

The Bruins needed a winger and Eriksson certainly fits that bill. The durable forward will be a sought after fantasy winger especially if he maintains his dual wing eligibility.
