Loui Eriksson is excited to play with future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr this season, as both of them are projected to occupy the wings, with Jamie Benn at center, on the Stars' top line.

"I've played with Benn before, but Jagr is a totally different person to play with. It would be awesome to play with a player like Jagr," Eriksson said. "He can teach me a lot. He's played in the NHL a long time and everyone knows how good he is. It's going to be fun to see how he is in practice and then play with him in games." He also expressed his contentment to see the team add Derek Roy and Ray Whitney to further improve its top-six forward group. Eriksson has surpassed 70 points in each of his last three seasons and his role on the team as a leader has been growing. The team's new additions should compliment him well this campaign.
