Eriksson extended his point streak to four games (four goals, three assists) with a goal in a 4-3 shootout loss to Buffalo on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He, Marcus Granlund and Bo Horvat are really clicking right now and there's a strong chance Eriksson is sitting out there on your wire. Grab him up and ride this his streak. You can always drop him later when he slows down and/or falls asleep.

Eriksson scored two goals and added one assist in an 8-5 win over Boston on Thursday night.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old winger struggled out of the game this season, but has now delivered at least a point in each of his last three games. Eriksson is certainly on the down slope of a reasonable NHL career. He has only delivered more than 47 points once in his last six seasons, so don't overestimate this little outburst. It was a nice game for Eriksson, but it certainly doesn't guarantee fantasy value this season.

Eriksson will look to pot his first goal of the season during Saturday's tilt with the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson started out the season with three assists in his first two games, and was looking like a nice fit with Elias Pettersson. Since those games, he's back to last season's form, failing to produce offense. He has a lone apple in the past nine games, and needs to step up his production to keep the Canucks afloat amidst all their current injuries.

Eriksson (bruise) played in the preseason last Tuesday, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet reports. He's projected to slot in alongside Nikloay Goldobin and Elias Petterson during Wednesday's Opening Night contest against the Flames, per NHL.com.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson missed a big chunk of time to begin the 2017-18 campaign, so it's at least encouraging that he's ready to contribute off the bat after being deemed week-to-week just a couple weeks back. The veteran will look to bounce back following a pair of disappointing seasons for the Canucks, collecting just 23 points over 50 games last season.

Eriksson (bruise) could be in action against the Oilers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson took the ice for Monday's practice session, and appears to be trending in the right direction. While the winger won't suit up Monday versus the Kings, his participation on the ice and potential reintroduction to the lineup bodes well for his availability Opening Night against the Flames on Oct. 3.

Eriksson now carries a week-to-week designation due to a bone bruise, according to Canucks coach Travis Green.

EDGE Analysis

Eriksson recorded 19:15 of ice time and dialed in a helper against the Oilers Tuesday, though he sat out the team's preseason home loss Wednesday. Considering those were both split-squad games, it's not clear if the Swede would have played in the latest contest even if he was feeling healthy enough to do so at the time. The second-round (33rd overall) draft pick -- he went to Dallas in 2003 -- only produced 10 goals and 13 assists over 50 games last year, and it's become a legitimate concern that Eriksson continues to miss time with different injuries.

Eriksson (ribs) joined his teammates for a voluntary practice session Tuesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given that he didn't have to be there, it's relatively safe to say that the fractured rib which sidelined Eriksson late in the 2017-18 season is no longer an issue. He's had a pair of underwhelming seasons in Vancouver since signing a six-year deal with the team in 2016, but he posted 63 points in his final year with the Bruins in 2015-16. With a pair of talented, young linemates in Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat potentially slated to skate alongside him, the veteran winger could have a bounce-back season ahead of him.

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.
