  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Dealing with minor issues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/18) Eriksson Ek was dealing with a minor injury during the playoffs.

    Coach Bruce Boudreau clarified that whatever was bothering Eriksson Ek wouldn't require surgery, but did prevent him from taking faceoffs. Considering the center was playing through his issue -- likely hand/arm related -- he should be ready to go for training camp this fall. The Swede had a decent rookie campaign, as he tallied six goals and 10 helpers in 75 appearances and should provide decent mid-range fantasy value heading into 2018-19.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Ends scoring drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Eriksson Ek scored his second goal of the season, and first since the first game of the season, in Monday's win at the Islanders.

    Eriksson Ek has just one goal and three assists in his last 12 games despite averaging 13:21 of ice time. He's stayed in the lineup thanks to his forechecking and penalty-kill skills. At just 21, he still has time to grow on offense.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Rejoining big club

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/18) Eriksson Ek was recalled from AHL Iowa on Monday.

    As expected, Eriksson Ek's demotion was short-lived, only lasting through All-Star Weekend. The 2015 first-round pick has struggled mightily this season, posting just a single goal and seven points through 42 contests in Minnesota. While the young Swede certainly has offensive upside, he currently doesn't provide much in a fantasy setting.

    Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Assigned to AHL Iowa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/18) The Wild assigned Eriksson Ek to AHL Iowa on Thursday.

    Eriksson Ek will head to Minnesota's minor-league affiliate to continue playing during the NHL's upcoming all-star break, but he'll likely be recalled by the big club ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Columbus. The 20-year-old forward has totaled one goal and seven points in 41 games with the Wild this season.

    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.
