Loui Eriksson LW BOS 2 Months

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.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli envisions Loui Eriksson playing on the top line if he cannot re-sign Jarome Iginla.

No harm in figuring out the contingency plans now. Eriksson is an excellent two-way player who is plenty talented to play on the first line, despite scoring just 10 goals and recording 37 points in 61 games last season. "I have to hedge in case we don't sign Jarome," Chiarelli said. "I have no problem if we have to put Loui on that top line. He's played on top lines before and he's played with the Sedins in the Olympics, and he was terrific. He's better suited for an upper line. If that's what we have to do then we'll do it. I'm trying to be patient with this because I really feel at one point there's going to be a player that will fit, and want to come here." Eriksson has scored at least 26 goals in four seasons, and he's been a 70-plus-point player in three. He could bounce back in a big way next season.

Eriksson had a goal and an assist to help the Bruins earn a 4-2 victory over Montreal in Game 5 of the second round. He had a rough, injury-filled 2013-14 campaign and has been a secondary scorer rather than an offensive leader in the playoffs with two goals and five points in 10 contests.

Coach Claude Julien feels that Loui Eriksson has played more like himself of late.

"Loui has just been good for us ever since he got over those injuries. He's a player that everybody from our organization saw him as being," Julien said. "He's great up front, he's a smart player, he manages the puck well, he doesn't make many mistakes, and he's a guy that's always been good in front of the net as well. I know we've got him on the half wall because we've got a different type of power play, but the 5-on-3, he's the designated guy to be in front of the net because he's good at it. So that's an area he excels in, and he did a great job." Eriksson finished the regular season with 17 points in his last 22 games. He has an assist and four shots in two playoff contests.

Loui Eriksson scored a goal and an assist in the Boston Bruins' 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

While Eriksson's offensive numbers pale in comparison to Tyler Seguin's this season, he could still be a great fit for Boston, especially in the tight playoffs. He's been showing flourishes of being a true offensive threat, too, with seven points (two goals, five assists) in his last five games.

Loui Eriksson, still available in 33% of Yahoo leagues, appears to be a strong pickup to close out fantasy championship weekend.

Eriksson has a goal and four assists over the past seven days, and the Bruins play on both Saturday and Sunday to cap off their season. The dynamic center has fallen a bit off the fantasy radar this season due to injuries and just 35 points through 59 games, but is a good bet to contribute against two non-playoff teams on the horizon.
