Eriksson (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 against Minnesota, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Eriksson missed Game 1 with an undisclosed injury, but he'll jump back into his bottom-six role for Game 2. The 35-year-old vet notched 13 points in 59 games during the regular season.
Eriksson (undisclosed) is listed as a scratch for Sunday's Game 1 against the Wild, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. It's unclear why Eriksson isn't suiting up, but he also missed last Wednesday's exhibition game. The 35-year-old was a healthy scratch on several occasions during the regular season, so even if he's fit to play, he may not make the lineup for Tuesday's Game 2.
Eriksson (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's exhibition game against the Jets, Irfaan Gaffar reports. Unless the Canucks disclosed that Eriksson is sitting Wednesday for injury reasons, there isn't yet any reason to be worried about his status for Saturday's tilt against Minnesota. Across 49 games in the regular season, Erikkson had just six goals and 13 points.
Eriksson watched Tuesday's meeting with the Islanders from the press box. Eriksson had been regularly playing in the Canucks top six on Bo Horvat's line, but the return of Brock Boeser (ribs) has pushed him out of the lineup for the time being. He has just six goals and 13 points in 49 games on the campaign.
Eriksson scored a goal and delivered an assist in Saturday's 9-3 drubbing of the Bruins. Eriksson assisted Tanner Pearson in the second period, and he then scored a goal of his own just 51 seconds later. The two-point effort snapped a nine-game drought for the Swede, who now has 12 points and 50 shots in 42 appearances. He's seen a limited role lately, reaching 15 minutes just three times in the last 10 games -- Eriksson's inconsistency and lack of physicality will typically keep fantasy owners away.
