Canucks' Loui Eriksson: On active roster

Eriksson was activated to the active roster Saturday. This makes Eriksson eligible to play in Saturday's game versus the Oilers. He has just one assist in five games this season, so he's not likely to make an impact even if he's in the lineup.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Sent to taxi squad

Eriksson was designated for the taxi squad Thursday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. In a corresponding move, Jayce Hawryluk was promoted to the active roster. Eriksson has rotated in and out of the lineup lately, playing five of the last nine games and adding an assist. The 35-year-old can continue practicing and traveling with the team while on the taxi squad.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Sets up empty-netter

Eriksson recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flames. Eriksson intercepted a pass in the Canucks' defensive zone and fed Brandon Sutter, who quickly sniped the puck into the empty net. Saturday was just the second game of the year for Eriksson, who has mostly been limited to the taxi squad and healthy scratch duties this season. The 35-year-old winger should be in the mix for a bottom-six job now after the Canucks snapped a six-game losing streak Saturday.

The Canucks waived Eriksson on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports. No one is going to want to pick up Eriksson's $6 million per year contract, so expect him to be assigned to the taxi squad after passing through waivers. The 35-year-old winger made his season debut Saturday against Toronto, going scoreless while posting a minus-2 rating in 9:16 of ice time.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Recalled from taxi squad

Eriksson was recalled from Vancouver's taxi squad on Friday. The 35-year-old was demoted to the taxi squad prior to Thursday's contest against Edmonton after being a healthy scratch Wednesday.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Shuffles to taxi squad

The Canucks shifted Eriksson to their taxi squad Thursday. Eriksson stayed with the club after being waived Monday, but he didn't suit up in Wednesday's opening clash with Edmonton.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Remains with big club

Despite being waived Monday, Eriksson is on Vancouver's 23-man roster ahead of Wednesday's Opening Night clash with the Oilers. Although he's still with the big club, Eriksson is projected to be a healthy scratch against Edmonton. The 35-year-old vet struggled last season, notching just 13 points in 49 games, so he'll likely be a common presence in the press box in 2020-21.

Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Placed on waivers

Vancouver placed Eriksson on waivers Monday. After four seasons with the club, Eriksson was never able to reach the level of play expected of him. In 2019-20, he played 49 games, scoring six goals and seven assists. He will likely be one of the first to be called up as he can be placed anywhere in the lineup. It wasn't uncommon for him to play on Bo Horvat's line last year, although that opportunity didn't made him viable in fantasy.
