      Analysis: The 36-year-old defenseman played in the Swedish Elite League last season. He has an uphill battle to win a roster spot, and even if he does nab a gig with Vancouver, he'll likely be given a two-way contract.

      News: Eriksson has been brought in for a tryout with the Islanders, according to Newsday.
      Analysis: Eriksson could be a possible replacement for Mark Streit, who will miss most of -- if not all of -- the regular season. Dean McAmmond, Krys Kolanos, Manny Legace, and Joel Martin were also brought in.
    • Rangers get Eriksson from Coyotes

      Analysis: Eriksson joins his eighth NHL team after spells with Detroit, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Columbus, Calgary and Phoenix. He spent all of last season in the AHL and played just 12 games for the Coyotes this campaign. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats. Wiikman is in his third North American season and has yet to play in an NHL game. He also isn't worth worrying about.

      Analysis: The 34-year-old Eriksson was playing with San Antonio of the AHL before being snapped up by Phoenix. A first-round pick in 1993, Eriksson has previously played for Detroit, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Columbus and Calgary. He will just be a low-end defenseman for the Coyotes and has no Fantasy value at this time.

    • A. Eriksson assists twice in win

      News: Flames D Anders Eriksson found the score sheet for the first time in seven games Saturday when he assisted twice in a 5-4 win over the Wild. Eriksson now has 17 points on the season.
      Analysis: Eriksson has never been much of an offensive force in his 10-year NHL career and has even been a healthy scratch a few times this season. Continue to ignore him in all formats.
    • A. Eriksson stays sizzling in loss

      News: Flames D Anders Eriksson recorded an assist on Calgary's only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday and now has six points in his last seven games.
      Analysis: When a defenseman is averaging nearly a point a game, you know he is really finding his offensive flow with a team. The Flames are playing very well recently and Eriksson is taking full advantage. Still, this scoring explosion is unlikely to continue, so only pick him up in very deep leagues if you're struggling at the blue line position.
    • Eriksson finding opening scorers

      News: Flames D Anders Eriksson tallied two assists and finished at even during Saturday's game against the Kings. He now has an assist in three of his last four games and four total. He has 10 assists this season.
      Analysis: Eriksson is playing more than 20 minutes per game and is in the top two defensive pairings for Calgary. However, he has never been a guy to post a lot of points and remains just a low-end flier at this time.
