Loui Eriksson

Veteran winger Loui Eriksson likely heading overseas in 2022-23

After an overall solid rebound season in 2021-22 as a member of the Arizona Coyotes, it appears that veteran winger Loui Eriksson is going to be continuing his career as a professional hockey player in Europe next year. According to Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports, the 37-year-old is still interested in playing, likely headed to his native Sweden, but has been looking at opportunities in Switzerland as well. Hearing that Eriksson could head overseas isn’t necessarily surprising, given his struggles to produce and diminished roles the past few seasons. However, demonstrating his health and a return to regular minutes this season meant there wasn’t much surprise that Eriksson still has something in the tank to offer.

Coyotes Report Card: Loui Eriksson

The Arizona Coyotes’ deal with the Vancouver Canucks was probably General Manager Bill Armstrong’s biggest. The Coyotes were able to get rid of Oliver Ekman-Larsson and get a first-round pick. Vancouver got dynamic forward Conor Garland, and perhaps most importantly, they got rid of three overpaid veterans on expiring deals, with one of those three being forward Loui Eriksson.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Adds helper in comeback win

Eriksson recorded an assist in Friday's 5-4 win over the Predators. Eriksson ended his five-game point drought in the final game of the regular season. The 36-year-old winger enjoyed a bit of a bounce-back campaign in 2021-22 with 19 points in 73 contests. He added 81 shots on net and a minus-18 rating in a bottom-six role. It's not clear if Eriksson intends to continue his career -- he's set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer now that his six-year, $36 million deal he signed with the Canucks in 2016 is over.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Reaches 10-assist mark

Eriksson provided an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Kings. Eriksson helped out on Anton Stralman's first-period marker. This was Eriksson's second assist in his last three games. The Swedish winger is up to 11 points, 49 shots on net and a minus-12 rating through 40 contests. He's occasionally rotated out of the lineup as a healthy scratch, but if the Coyotes continue to trade away older forwards, Eriksson could either cement his place or end up on a different team. He's still unlikely to do enough to help in fantasy in either scenario.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Manages helper in win

Eriksson notched an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken. Eriksson helped out on Anton Stralman's game-winner early in the third period. The assist ended a five-game point drought for Eriksson, who has been limited to mainly a bottom-six role this season. He's at 10 points, 47 shots on net and a minus-13 rating in 38 appearances, though his place in the lineup can't be guaranteed on a nightly basis.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Nabs assist in loss

Eriksson produced an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Rangers. Eriksson set up Liam O'Brien for the opening tally just 2:29 into the contest. The 36-year-old Eriksson was a healthy scratch for six straight games earlier in January, but he's collected three helpers in three outings since he rejoined the lineup. The Swede has a modest nine points with 43 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 32 contests overall, and he's mainly been limited to a fourth-line role when he plays. With little beyond his scoring production, Eriksson's not a particularly helpful option in fantasy.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Serves pair of helpers

Eriksson provided two assists in a 4-1 win over the Devils on Wednesday. Eriksson had not played since Jan. 4 against Winnipeg but was able to shake off the rust quickly Wednesday. Though the veteran right winger has just eight points in 30 games this season, six of those points have come in his last eight games. Those eight games have been spread out over nearly two months, though, so some consistent playing time could serve Eriksson well in the second half.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Puts up helper Tuesday

In his last four games, Eriksson has a goal and two helpers, but that should be considered an anomaly. He's at just six points, 38 shots on net and a minus-12 rating in 28 outings overall while mainly logging bottom-six minutes.

Coyotes' Loui Eriksson: Adds assist Monday

Eriksson posted an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Blues. Eriksson was credited with the secondary helper on Travis Boyd's third-period tally. It's been a few years since Eriksson was a true scoring threat in fantasy -- he was more of a bottom-six option throughout his five-year tenure with the Canucks, and that appears likely to continue with the Coyotes. As such, fantasy managers likely don't need to track his output in 2021-22.
