Eriksson was recalled from Vancouver's taxi squad on Friday.
The 35-year-old was demoted to the taxi squad prior to Thursday's contest against Edmonton after being a healthy scratch Wednesday. Despite moving up to the 23-man roster, Eriksson is still likely to be a healthy scratch more often than not this season.
The Canucks shifted Eriksson to their taxi squad Thursday.
Eriksson stayed with the club after being waived Monday, but he didn't suit up in Wednesday's opening clash with Edmonton. The veteran will likely be a common presence in the press box this season, as he was replaced by Justin Bailey on the 23-man roster Thursday.
Despite being waived Monday, Eriksson is on Vancouver's 23-man roster ahead of Wednesday's Opening Night clash with the Oilers.
Although he's still with the big club, Eriksson is projected to be a healthy scratch against Edmonton. The 35-year-old vet struggled last season, notching just 13 points in 49 games, so he'll likely be a common presence in the press box in 2020-21.
Vancouver placed Eriksson on waivers Monday.
After four seasons with the club, Eriksson was never able to reach the level of play expected of him. In 2019-20, he played 49 games, scoring six goals and seven assists. He will likely be one of the first to be called up as he can be placed anywhere in the lineup. It wasn't uncommon for him to play on Bo Horvat's line last year, although that opportunity didn't made him viable in fantasy.
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.
Eriksson collected an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.
Eriksson has a goal and three helpers on his current four-game point streak. The Swede is up to 10 points, 38 shots on goal and a plus-5 rating in 32 contests this season. While he's hot, he could help fill out rosters in DFS formats.

Eriksson set up Tanner Pearson's empty-net goal to produce the final score. In 29 contests this season, Eriksson is up to seven points and 31 shots on goal. He's seeing top-six minutes still, but the production doesn't match the role. Fantasy owners need not pay attention.
Eriksson had an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.
All four of Eriksson's points this season have come in the last nine games. The 34-year-old has added 26 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in 23 appearances. His recent success and top-line role could make him a value option in DFS.
Eriksson posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flames.
Eriksson's first helper of the year came on a Tanner Pearson goal at 6:10 of the third period. The Swede has recently seen top-line minutes, resulting all three of his points this season coming his last seven games.
Eriksson scored an empty-net goal, fired three shots on goal and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.
Eriksson has seen a lot of time in the press box this season, but he's currently in a top-line role since Josh Leivo (kneecap) exited the lineup. The goal was just the second of the year for the Swede, who has 18 shots and eight PIM in 19 games. He skated a season-high 16:46 on Monday -- while he may seen an expanded role for now, it likely won't translate to much relevance in the fantasy game.
Eriksson has been a healthy scratch for Vancouver's last six games.
Eriksson has just a single goal throughout 17 appearances this season. His role with the team has diminished, as evidenced by his average ice time dropping by over four minutes this year. Steer clear from the veteran ringer in the fantasy arena.
Eriksson scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.
Eriksson got a top-line assignment Saturday, and cashed in with an insurance goal late in the second period. The Swedish winger's tally was his first point in 15 games this season. He hasn't topped 30 points since 2015-16 when he had 63 points with the Bruins. Eriksson is a fantasy non-factor at this point in his career, and he'll likely return to a limited role in the near future.
Eriksson will play Saturday against the Oilers, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
Eriksson will take the place of Nikolay Goldobin on Vancouver's top line. The 34-year-old is without a point in 14 games played, making Eriksson virtually unplayable in most fantasy formats. Dress the veteran at your own peril.
Eriksson has yet to crack the scoresheet this season.
Eriksson was initially given credit for an assist, but has since seen it removed. He has only appeared in 12 games, and will likely see himself as the odd man out once the Canucks are at full health. Expect a career-low in points for the 34-year-old.
