Eriksson scored in the second period and buried the puck in an empty net with 38 seconds remaining Tuesday in a win over Nashville.

With four goals and six points over his last four games, Eriksson's officially hot. He's been finding twine with great regularity of late, having tallied six times over the last eight games.

Eriksson now has two multi-point efforts in his last three games, and six points in his last seven. The 29-year-old now has 19 points on seven goals in 34 games. While he won't come close to the 70-point seasons he has put up before, the winger could surpass last season's total of 37.

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.
