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.

Eriksson tallied a pair of goals in Thursday's win over the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson has been playing some of the best hockey of his Vancouver career and now has five goals in his last six games. The two-way forward is skating with the Sedin twins and finally starting to live up to some of that monstrous six-year deal he signed back in 2016. At 32 years of age, Eriksson is only two years removed from a dominant 30-goal season with the Bruins. Now that he's finally found his groove in Vancouver, Eriksson is certainly worth looking at, as the skill is there for him to be an impact fantasy forward.

Eriksson scored for the third time in four games in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

After a slow start to the season, Eriksson is really starting to pick up the pace. The 32-year-old is currently skating with fellow Swedes Henrik and Daniel Sedin and has notched six points in his last five contests. It was obvious Eriksson would start to find his groove in Vancouver at some point, so keep an eye out and see if the veteran can find some consistency. Eriksson can be a very valuable fantasy contributor when he's at his best and playing with confidence.

Eriksson made it two straight games with a goal in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson's now at three straight games with a point and scored for the first time this year with a goaltender in the cage. It might be time to take a flyer on him in the hopes that he's back to full strength.

Eriksson tallied his first goal of the season and added a helper in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

It may seem surprising it took this long for him to score, but the veteran has actually only appeared in nine games this season due to injury. Eriksson's goal came on an empty net, but he also made a slick pass to set up Sven Baertschi on the power play earlier in the game. With six points through nine contests, the Canucks would love for Eriksson to start supplying more depth scoring. He wasn't good in his first year with Vancouver, but he's put up back-to-back multi-point outings and plays on the power play, making a bounce-back season still a realistic possibility. Keep an eye on him and snatch him up if he keeps up the production.

Eriksson doled out a pair of assists -- one shorthanded and another on the power play -- Saturday, but the Canucks lost to the Blues at home in overtime, 4-3.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that Eriksson's playing time is being monitored carefully by coach Travis Green. With consideration to the 12 games that he missed due to a knee sprain, the Swede's averaging only 14:16 through eight games. His four assists in that span are nothing to write home about, but Eriksson remains a key cog on special teams and therefore is appealing in deep leagues.

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.
