Eriksson (knee) will return for Saturday's road game against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

The Swede may have been a forgotten man in fantasy, as he's missed the past 12 games. However, Eriksson has supreme offensive instincts and he can hold his own on a man-advantage unit, so consider picking him up if he's been toiling on the virtual waiver wire. He's collected 529 points (223 goals, 529 assists) in 794 career games between the Stars, Bruins and Canucks, respectively.

Eriksson (knee) practiced Friday and will return to the lineup at some point during Vancouver's upcoming two-game road trip.

EDGE Analysis

The Canucks will start their road trip Saturday in San Jose, so it's possible Eriksson won't have to wait long for his return to game action. The veteran winger has missed Vancouver's last 12 contests due to a knee injury, so he'll likely be eased back into action when he's reinserted into the lineup.

Eriksson will be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks due to a knee sprain.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old Swede could be out until December, so owners that don't have the option to stash him in an IR spot may want to consider dropping the veteran winger for a more promising option. Nikolay Goldobin or Reid Boucher will likely get recalled from the minors to round out Vancouver's depth up front while Eriksson is in recovery mode.

Eriksson was designated for injured reserve Tuesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Eriksson is not traveling with the team for its five-game road trip -- which effectively rules him out until Oct. 26 at the earliest -- it shouldn't come as a surprise he was placed on IR. Nikolay Goldobin or Reid Boucher are the most likely candidates to get promoted from AHL Utica.

As expected, Eriksson (knee) did not join the team for its five-game road trip, ruling him out until Oct. 26 at the earliest, Dan Murhpy of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson's absence almost certainly means the Canucks will want to call-up a player from AHL Utica -- especially considering how thin they are at forward with Brendan Gaunce (shoulder) currently on the non-roster injured list. Having lost out on his top-line spot with the Sedin twins, the 32-year-old Eriksson has seen a significant dip in minutes (11:58 of ice time per game) as well as offensive production (one assist). Even once cleared to play, the Swede seems to have fallen off from the 63-point player he was with Boston during the 2015-16 campaign.

Eriksson sustained a knee injury that forced him out of Saturday's clash with Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran winger suffered the injury when he was tripped up by Calgary's Tanner Glass as he was crashing the net. The injury is apparently quite serious, with Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reporting that Eriksson will miss the Canucks' upcoming five-game road trip. Expect Vancouver to provide more information on Eriksson's status before their next game, which is Tuesday in Ottawa.

Eriksson skated on a line with rising star Bo Horvat at practice on Wednesday, TSN 1040's Jeff Patterson reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson is looking to rebound after a disastrous season in which he managed just 11 goals and 24 points. He scored twice in three preseason games and really stood out in the team's final exhibition game against the Oilers over the weekend. The 32-year-old is still a very capable offensive producer, so if he consistently plays alongside talented linemates and can re-discover his touch, Eriksson could make for an underrated fantasy play in 2017-18.

Eriksson (leg) missed Saturday's game against the Oilers, and he will not play in Sunday's second half of the home-and-home, Rick Dhaliwal of News 1130 reports.

EDGE Analysis

You can close the book on the Swede's season, as he finished with just 11 goals, 24 points and a minus-9 rating. The point total was his worst since he had 19 points across 59 outings during his rookie season of 2006-07 with the Stars.

Eriksson (lower body) remained back in Vancouver as the team kicked off a two-game road trip starting Tuesday against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson has already missed the Canucks' last 13 outings and appears set to be sidelined for two more. The winger just signed a new six-year deal during the summer, which will likely have the organization looking to the future when it comes to Eriksson's status for their last few games of the year.

Eriksson (lower body) will not return to the lineup for Sunday's showdown against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson remains without a firm timetable for return after it appeared he would be able to return on Friday and he didn't. Don't be surprised if he is effectively shut down for the season.
