Eriksson scored a goal for the first time since Oct. 16 and added a power-play assist in Thursday's win over Edmonton.

A nice night for Eriksson, who's nonetheless still struggling to prove that he can be the kind of team-carrying scorer he was for the Stars from 2008-09 to 2011-12 before suddenly falling off the pace in the lockout-shortened season two years ago. Still only 29 years old and enjoying regular top-six ice time for the B's, Eriksson represents a somewhat risky, but potentially high-reward buy-low opportunity.

Eriksson gathered an assist on the first of two goals by Matt Fraser in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Bruins.

Eriksson now has assists in back-to-back games while going plus-3 during that span, but his overall production for the season (seven points in 13 contests) has been rather pedestrian for a player averaging 17:38 of ice time. He should be a season-long asset in the plus/minus category for fantasy owners, but it's tough to forecast a return to the 70-point production he demonstrated with the Stars earlier in his career. Reaching 60 points might even be a stretch for Erikkson at this stage in his career.

Erikson scored a goal, contributed an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's loss to Montreal.

This defeat certainly can't be laid at Eriksson's feet, but even with this effort, he hasn't bounced back much yet this year, with just three points in six contests. It's odd for a guy who's less than 30 years old and doesn't have much of a track record with injuries to decline as Eriksson has, but his fantasy owners are stuck with that reality.

Eriksson netted his first goal of the season -- on the power play -- in Monday's loss to the Avalanche.

It was the first point of the season for Eriksson, who is currently skating on the third line with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly. Eriksson's fantasy value has gone down in Boston, where he is no longer playing on the top line and top power play unit -- as he did in Dallas. Through four games, Eriksson has managed just seven shots on goal, while averaging 16:32 of ice time.

Eriksson saw 21:29 worth of ice time in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings.

Through the Bruins' first two games, Eriksson -- who has yet to record a point -- has been skating on a line with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, though it remains to be seen if the trio will remain intact once top center David Krejci returns to Bruins' forward mix.

In advance of Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Eriksson was skating on a line with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, Joe Haggerty of csnne.com reports.

David Krejci's injury (which will cause him to miss at least three games) has caused the Bruins to shuffle up some of their lines, so the anticipated trio of Eriksson, Milan Lucic and Krejci is a potential combo that is on hold for now.

Eriksson is projected to work on a line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci on Tuesday against the Islanders, the Bruins' official site reports.

With Lucic back in action, the Bruins' top line is taking shape, with Eriksson on track to fill the void created by the offseason departure of Jarome Iginla. While Eriksson is not the goal-scorer that Iginla is, he is a skilled two-way winger who should mesh well with Krejci and Lucic, with an uptick in production a likely outcome for the 29-year-old Swede. Eriksson notched 37 points in 61 games for the Bruins in 2013-14.

Bruins coach Claude Julien suggested that Loui Eriksson will help fill the void left by Jarome Iginla.

That meshes with what Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said in June when Iginla walking as a free agent was still just a possibility. Eriksson had just 10 goals and 37 points in 61 games last season, but he also suffered two concussions. He'll have a prime opportunity to rebound if the Bruins give him a shot on their top line in 2014-15.
