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.
Eriksson (lower body) is now considered day-to-day, which still rules him out for Thursday's matchup with the Stars. Eriksson's day-to-day status puts him right on schedule with the expected timetable set out for him. It's possible that he'll suit up for Saturday's game in Edmonton, but that's by no means guaranteed at this point.
Eriksson (lower body) is "a week to two weeks away from returning," per coach Willie Desjardins. Eriksson's performance has not been up to snuff lately, as he's managed a total of three points and a minus-2 rating in his last 19 games despite averaging 18:14 of ice time (including 2:15 on the power play) over that span. While he's sitting out, youngster Nikolay Goldobin will likely get the chance to prove his worth in the meantime.
Eriksson ended a nine-game scoring drought Saturday, picking up a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Kings. Eriksson hasn't gotten it done for fantasy owners this season, notching 11 goals and 24 points in 64 games. He's skating on the second line with rising star Bo Horvat, but hasn't been able to consistently produce offense in his top-six role. Eriksson is worth owning in some deeper leagues, but he's been too inconsistent to be trusted in most fantasy formats.
Eriksson left Sunday's game in Anaheim with a lower-body injury and will not return. Eriksson departed in the first period favoring his left leg after a hard hit along the boards by the Ducks' Chris Wagner, recording just 1:09 of ice time. It's too early to say how severe the Swede's injury might be or how long it'll keep him out for, but with just 11 goals and 24 points this year, he's not likely to be missed in the majority of fantasy leagues.
