Eriksson tracked down a bouncing puck for a goal Wednesday, helping his team to a 4-1 win over the Coyotes. Eriksson's been able to score in back-to-back games, and now he has lit the lamp three times over the last five. Still, he's predictably seen a significant drop in offensive production since leaving the Bruins after last season. The Swede registered a healthy 63 points in 82 in 2015-16, but he's on pace for 16 goals and assists apiece along with an unsightly minus-29 rating in his first go-around with Vancouver -- as a result, we have him pegged as an early bust in the fantasy realm.
Eriksson scored a goal against Dallas on Sunday. The 31-year-old has been in a slump to start the year, taking 14 games to find the back of the net. He has scored two goals in his last three games, so maybe he's breaking out, but he has been disappointing to many owners this year.
Eriksson recorded five shots on net over 19:57 of ice time during Wednesday's game against Montreal. After registering just 13 shots through the first nine games of the season, Eriksson's five shots Wednesday was encouraging. However, he's still looking for his first goal of the season and is no longer playing with Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin at even strength. Perhaps, new linemates will help, but as it stands, Eriksson's fantasy stock is plummeting.
Eriksson had two helpers in Sunday's loss to the Ducks. An impressive outing for Eriksson, who assisted on Bo Horvat's shorthanded goal and logged 19:41 of ice time. Eriksson has yet to score this season, but he's piled up four helpers and is logging steady minutes. He's barely shooting the puck right now, but given his 30 goals in 2015-16 and potential to line up with the Sedin twins on any given night, it won't be long before he nets his first in a Vancouver uniform.
Eriksson scored twice in Thursday's preseason win over the Flames. Eriksson was acquired to add some scoring punch to the Canucks roster, and he did just that in this one. Expect him to skate on the top line with the Sedin twins this season.
