Loui Eriksson Finally Gets First Point Of The Season With Goal Against Oilers


  • Loui Eriksson scored against the Oilers to finally get his first point of the season for the Canucks.
  • Eriksson scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Oilers.
  • It took 15 games, but it happened. Loui scored a tap-in goal on a beautiful feed from his linemates: Tanner, son of pear, and Bo, son of Tim.
  • It was one of the easier goals of his career, and I know that piling on Loui is the local sport, but it was impossible not to appreciate his relief and joy.
  • It’s a 6M dollar goal… What more can we say.
  • At least he now has more goals than Milan Lucic.
  • It’s good to see him smile for once.
  • Eriksson got a top-line assignment Saturday, and cashed in with an insurance goal late in the second period.
  • The Swedish winger’s tally was his first point in 15 games this season.
  • He hasn’t topped 30 points since 2015-16 when he had 63 points with the Bruins.
  • Eriksson is a fantasy non-factor at this point in his career, and he’ll likely return to a limited role in the near future.
