Eriksson (leg) missed Saturday's game against the Oilers, and he will not play in Sunday's second half of the home-and-home, Rick Dhaliwal of News 1130 reports. You can close the book on the Swede's season, as he finished with just 11 goals, 24 points and a minus-9 rating. The point total was his worst since he had 19 points across 59 outings during his rookie season of 2006-07 with the Stars.
Eriksson (lower body) remained back in Vancouver as the team kicked off a two-game road trip starting Tuesday against the Sharks. Eriksson has already missed the Canucks' last 13 outings and appears set to be sidelined for two more. The winger just signed a new six-year deal during the summer, which will likely have the organization looking to the future when it comes to Eriksson's status for their last few games of the year.
Eriksson (lower body) will not return to the lineup for Sunday's showdown against the Sharks. Eriksson remains without a firm timetable for return after it appeared he would be able to return Friday but didn't. Don't be surprised if he is shut down for the season.
Eriksson (lower body) won't play Friday versus the Kings. This will be Eriksson's 12th game in a row that he's missed. His next chance to return is Sunday, but given that the Canucks have nothing to play for, don't expect Eriksson to hurry back -- or for Vancouver to try and press him into service.
Eriksson (lower body) still considers himself day-to-day and is unsure if he'll play Friday's game against the Kings. Despite the Vancouver coaching staff's assurances that Eriksson would return Friday, the winger now says that he doesn't feel 100 percent and could still use some time to recover. Eriksson hasn't played in 11 games and probably isn't worth keeping around for the final six in most fantasy leagues.
