Eriksson (ribs) is not listed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson has been ruled out for the remainder of 2017-18, but the team has no reason to have him on injured reserve with rosters expanded following the trade deadline. The veteran winger still seems likely to miss the remainder of the campaign, but it's worth keeping eyes peeled for news to the contrary.

The Canucks placed Eriksson (ribs) on injured reserve Wednesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign due to a fractured rib, so this move was nothing but a formality. The 32-year-old winger, who totaled 10 goals and 23 points in 50 contests this campaign, should have plenty of time to get back to 100 percent ahead of next season's training camp.

Eriksson will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season due to a fractured rib, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson was ruled out for up to 10 days by Canucks coach Travis Green on Wednesday, but more tests have apparently pushed that timeline back further. Other bodies will move up the depth chart the rest of the way in his absence, while Darren Archibald, Jussi Jokinen and Nic Dowd will continue to vie for ice time until Brendan Gaunce (foot) or Markus Granlund (ankle) is healthy enough to play. Eriksson will rest up and then rehab to be ready for training camp.

Eriksson (upper body) is in jeopardy of missing up to 10 days, per Canucks coach Travis Green, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Canucks appear to be keeping Eriksson on the active roster for the time being, though he could miss as many as five games based on the prognosis relayed from coach Green. Look for the Cancuks to continue occupying the right-wing slot with Darren Archibald, who is far from a lateral replacement for Eriksson, but at least can shore up the fourth line while the more established players get bumped up in the lineup.

Eriksson will sit out Monday against Colorado with an upper-body injury, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson must have sustained the malady during Sunday's tilt against Arizona, and Jake Virtanen should take his place on the third line. The severity of the injury is unknown at the moment, but Eriksson will shoot to return Wednesday against the Rangers, and build upon the 10 points (five goals, five assists) he's posted in 23 games since the New Year.

Eriksson potted two goals -- including a shorthanded tally -- on the way to a 6-1 home drubbing of the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The Swede probably had this game circled on his calendar, as he'd spent three seasons with the B's before getting acquired by Vancouver through free agency in July of 2016. Eriksson's fantasy owners will gladly accept the production, but it's worth noting that the Canucks will soon be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention and with that comes fear that veterans like him will start ceding valuable playing time to some of the younger players.

Eriksson went plus-3 with two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 home win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old winger factored into the game's first three goals before the Canucks engaged cruise control the rest of the way. Generally, not much attention has been on Vancouver, as the team currently sits in 14th place within the Western Conference standings, but that only makes Eriksson -- with his 19 points through 36 games -- a sneaky play in most daily settings.

Eriksson scored his sixth goal of the season and had an assist in Sunday's overtime win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson has had his moments this season, but ultimately he's been a disappointment with just 16 points through 33 games. His goal Sunday was just his first in 18 games, as the Swede has struggled to produce offense on a consistent basis. There's potential for him to be a valuable fantasy contributor due to his top-six role and power-play gig, but Eriksson isn't showing much to warrant a look in anything but some deeper leagues.

Eriksson logged an assist in a 5-2 victory over Columbus on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The primary feed to Erik Gudbranson broke a seven game pointless streak for Eriksson, and brought him to 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 32 games in 2017-18. The 32-year-old has been averaging 16:26 of ice time on the season -- down from 18:40 from last year -- and was recently relegated from the Sedin's second line, down to the fourth unit. This certainly isn't an ideal situation for Eriksson, and although his minutes likely won't decrease with the demotion, his offensive opportunities surely will.

Eriksson dished out an assist in Thursday's loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It was the second consecutive outing with a point for Eriksson, who has had a very quiet month of December. The 32-year-old is skating with the Sedin twins right now, but it's hard to be too confident in his fantasy value moving forward. Eriksson's play has improved overall this season, but he's failing to produce with the man advantage and hasn't gotten in the goal column for 10 games. He's worth owning in some deeper leagues, but right now he's one of those players you should grab when he gets hot.
