  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Praised by head coach

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Eriksson Ek had a shot on goal, two hits and skated two minutes on the penalty kill in Wednesday's win over Dallas. Although he didn't score, head coach Bruce Boudreau praised his performance, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's going to start scoring. It might not be this year. I don't mean that facetiously, but you can see he's going to be a real good player, and that's why he keeps playing," Boudreau said.

    Eriksson Ek has just two assists in his last 10 games since being recalled from AHL Iowa. He does have 20 hits and is plus-1 while averaging 13:03 of ice time over that span. While he's drawn praise, he could lose ice time once Zach Parise returns from injury early next month.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Recalled from minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Eriksson Ek was promoted from AHL Iowa on Wednesday.

    Eriksson Ek has probably worn through at least one set of tires travelling back and forth between clubs. Whether the youngster actually cracks the lineup versus the Ducks on Friday remains to be seen, but at a minimum, he will provide some emergency forward depth during the rest of the team's California trip.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Sent down to AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/21/17) Eriksson Ek was reassigned to the minors Tuesday.

    Eriksson Ek became the odd man out at center after Charlie Coyle (leg) returned to the Wild lineup. In order to earn his way back up to Minnesota, the youngster will likely need to move over to the wing as the four current players down the middle seem firmly entrenched in their roles. Additionally, the Swede's 12-game point drought likely factored into the decision to demote him.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Scoring slump continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Eriksson Ek had four shots on goal but did not score in Saturday's win over Philadelphia. He hasn't scored a goal since Oct. 5 and has just one assist in his last 13 games. "Inconsistencies are very common with first-year players, young guys. I thought the last two games [before Saturday], he's played extremely well," head coach Bruce Boudreau told TheAthletic.com. "And I thought he was probably our best forechecking forward in Boston too. So maybe he's back on an upswing. That's what we're hoping."

    Despite Boudreau's endorsement, Eriksson Ek could find himself in the minors if his slump continues. He's also dead last in the NHL in faceoff win percentage at .297, according to TheAthletic, which will hurt his ice time.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Returns to NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/30/17) Eriksson Ek was recalled from AHL Iowa on Monday.

    The 20-year-old barely lasted 24 hours in the AHL, and will likely rejoin the team for Tuesday's matchup against Winnipeg. Eriksson Ek will likely slot back into centering the third line with Charlie Coyle (leg) out, and he should remain in the majors at least for the time being.
