He has 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) in 50 games this season and 47 points (21 goals, 26 assists) in 115 games with the Canucks. Eriksson, 32, signed a six-year contract July 1, 2016.
  • Patrice Bergeron, the top-line center for the Boston Bruins and a candidate for the 2018 Hart Trophy as NHL most valuable player, is out indefinitely with a fractured right foot. Bergeron, who was injured blocking a shot during the first period against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
  • Josh Andersonwill be out four weeks for the Columbus Blue Jackets because of a sprained knee.  The forward was injured during a 5-1 home win against the Washington Capitals on Monday. He was able to finish the game and was plus-1 in 17:41.  The 23-year-old is tied with Artemi Panarin for the Blue Jackets lead with 18 goals in 61 games. Anderson has 29 points.
  • Matt Murraywill be out indefinitely with a concussion, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday.  The goalie was diagnosed Tuesday morning after first being evaluated following practice Monday, which the 23-year-old left early after taking a puck to the head on a shot by defenseman Olli Maatta.  Rookie goalie Casey DeSmith is expected to start Tuesday with Tristan Jarry backing up. Sullivan said he’s comfortable moving forward with DeSmith, 26, and Jarry, 22, for the time being.  Jarry is 10-4-2 with a 2.58 GAA and .916 save percentage in 20 games this season. He allowed four goals on 16 shots in a 6-5 loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday.  DeSmith is 3-3-0 with a 2.23 GAA and .926 save percentage in seven games (five starts) this season.
  • Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthewsis expected to be out at least 10 days because of a shoulder injury.  “We always tell you day to day, and that usually means 10 and we go from there,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said Saturday. “As fast as we can get him back and ready to play and healthy, that’s what we’ll do.”  Matthews left with 1:06 remaining in the third period of a 4-3 shootout win against the New York Islanders at Air Canada Centre on Thursday. He scored with 3:29 remaining to tie the game 3-3.  Matthews led the Maple Leafs with 50 points (28 goals, 22 assists) in 53 games before he was injured. He missed 10 games earlier this season because of injuries. On Nov. 8, he sustained an upper-body injury and missed four games. On Dec. 9, Matthews collided with teammate Morgan Rielly in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins and missed the next six games with a concussion.  Matthews won the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year last season with 69 points (40 goals, 29 assists) after the Maple Leafs selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.
  • Charlie McAvoywill miss at least four weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, the Boston Bruins said Tuesday.  The rookie defenseman was injured during the first period of the Bruins’ 2-1 overtime win against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. McAvoy left 37 seconds into the game after a hit by Montreal forward Brendan Gallagher. He hobbled off the ice and didn’t return.  The Bruins had Brandon Carlo in McAvoy’s spot alongside Chara at the morning skate Tuesday. The other pairs were Torey Krug and Nick Holden, and Kevan Miller with Matt Grzelcyk.  The Bruins also are missing forward Patrice Bergeron and goaltender Tuukka Rask. Bergeron has a fractured right foot sustained against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb. 24 and is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week. Rask has a lower-body injury and won’t play against the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVAS, NESN, NHL.TV).
  • Brock Boesercould miss the remainder of the regular season after injuring his back against the New York Islanders, the Vancouver Canucks said Tuesday.  Boeser left Rogers Arena on a stretcher and was sent to a hospital after a collision with 27 seconds left in the third period of the Canucks’ 4-3 overtime win on Monday. The Canucks said his recovery is expected to take 4-6 weeks.  Boeser, a 21-year-old forward who leads all NHL rookies with 29 goals, had to be helped off the ice after he fell into an open gate at the players bench after trying to make a hit on Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck. Boeser appeared to hit his lower back on the edge of the gate just above his left hip; he was down on the ice for several minutes before being helped off. He was not putting any weight on his left leg.  The Canucks said he was diagnosed with a soft-tissue injury and a nonstructural, non-displaced fracture of the transverse process in his lower back. He was allowed to go home a few hours after the game.
  • Dallas Stars goalie Ben Bishopwill miss at least two games because of a lower-body injury.  Bishop left after the first period of a 3-2 overtime loss against the Ottawa Senators at American Airlines Center on Monday. Stars defenseman Dan Hamhuis fell into Bishop midway through the first after getting his legs tangled in the stick of Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau.
  • Max Paciorettycould miss the rest of the regular season for the Montreal Canadiens because of a knee injury.  The forward was injured in a 6-3 win against the New York Islanders on Friday and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. If he returns four weeks from Monday, he could play in Montreal’s final three regular-season games.  Pacioretty, 29, has 37 points (17 goals, 20 assists) in 64 games this season. The Montreal captain has 448 points (226 goals, 222 assists) in 626 NHL games, including at least 30 goals in each of the past four seasons (2013-17).
  • Jay Bouwmeesterwill miss the remainder of the season for the St. Louis Blues because of an injury to his left hip.  The defenseman will have surgery and is expected to need 4-6 months to recover. Bouwmeester missed nine games after he injured his hip Dec. 10 against the Buffalo Sabres, but the 34-year-old returned to play after receiving an injection rather than opting for surgery at the time.  Bouwmeester missed the first 21 games of the season with a fractured ankle after blocking a shot in training camp. He returned Nov. 21 against the Edmonton Oilers. Bouwmeester has seven points (two goals, five assists) in 35 games this season.
  • Luke Kuninof the Minnesota Wild will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.  The 20-year-old forward was injured during a 4-1 loss against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. He is expected to have surgery in the coming weeks and could miss training camp next season; the expected recovery time is approximately seven months.  Selected by Minnesota in the first round (No. 15) in the 2016 NHL Draft, Kunin has four points (two goals, two assists) in 19 games this season.
  • Vancouver Canucks forward Sven Baertschihas a separated shoulder and is likely to miss the rest of the season, coach Travis Green said Sunday.  Baertschi was injured when he collided with Nashville Predators defenseman Alexei Emelin in the second period of a 4-3 overtime loss at Rogers Arena on Friday.  The 25-year-old forward has 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) in 53 games this season.

Other Interesting Stories:

 

  • Well, Seattle fans have spoken loud and clear as to whether they want NHL hockey in their city. Seattle, which began a season ticket drive Thursday in its effort to become an NHL expansion team, received 10,000 deposits in 12 minutes and about 25,000 in total.  The ownership group applied to the NHL for an expansion team on Feb. 13. If Seattle is awarded an NHL team, its owners expect to announce final ticket prices in 2019.  The group, led by Jerry Bruckheimer, a Hollywood producer, David Bonderman, a private equity CEO, and Tim Leiweke, CEO of Oak View Group, was authorized Dec. 7 to file an application for expansion by the NHL Board of Governors. It paid a $10 million application fee, Sportsnet reported.  “Shell-shocked is best way to put it,” Leiweke told TSN about the amount of deposits. “We sold 10,000 season tickets in 12 minutes and we’re just short of 25,000 so I guess the fans have spoken. The fans in Seattle have made it a resounding vote which is they are ready for the National Hockey League. They are counting on us to bring the NHL here.”  https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-to-seattle-ticket-drive-for-possible-expansion-team/c-296507418

  • David Poile set the record for wins by an NHL general manager when the Nashville Predators defeated the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Thursday. Poile, who has been Predators GM since their inaugural season in 1998-99, got his 1,320th win, passing Glen Sather for the most in NHL history. He tied Sather’s record of 1,319 wins when the Predators defeated the Winnipeg Jets 6-5 on Tuesday.  https://www.nhl.com/news/poile-sets-wins-re cord-for-gm/c-296520710 Open!!  The first trade David Poile made as an NHL general manager came 10 days after he was hired by the Washington Capitals on Aug. 30, 1982. It instantly transformed the Capitals from a struggling team trying to gain a foothold in Washington into one that qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for 14 consecutive seasons.  In 1982, Poile was 32 and the League’s youngest GM when he acquired Langway, fellow defenseman Brian Engblom, and forwards Doug Jarvis and Craig Laughlin from the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Rick Green and forward Ryan Walter.  https://www.nhl.com/news/david-poile-trade-for-rod-langway-set-him-on-course-to-nhl-history/c-296511384

  • Wayne:  Try hockey for free day was last Saturday!!  http://www.tryhockeyforfree.com/    The hockey team from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School practiced at BB&T Center, home of the Florida Panthers, and it even included a special surprise guest: The Stanley Cup.  The Stoneman Douglas team recently won the Florida state title just 11 days after a tragic mass shooting at their school in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 people. Since the horrible event, there’s been an outpouring of kindness toward the students. The Florida Panthers, who play in nearby Sunrise, Florida, invited the hockey team to practice at their home arena. The players were told a special surprise was coming and during the end of practice, out came the Cup.  https://www.nhl.com/news/marjory-stoneman-douglas-hockey-team-gets-day-with-stanley-cup/c-296665926
