Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Staying back in Vancouver

Eriksson (lower body) will not travel with the team for its upcoming road trip, effectively ruling him out for those four contests.

Eriksson has not lived up to expectations since joining Vancouver in the offseason under a six-year, $36 million contract, as he has registered just 11 goals and 13 assists with the Canucks. That is a far cry from the 63 points he compiled for Boston during the 2015-16 campaign. Given the winger has already been sidelined for six outings, the team may consider shutting him down for the rest of the year if this ailment continues to bother him.
