Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Loui Eriksson
Loui Eriksson was born July 17, 1985 in Goteborg, Sweden. Dallas' second round selection, 33rd overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Goteborg honed his skills in the Swedish Elite League before arriving in North America.

He began his professional hockey career with the Vastra Frolunda Indians of the Swedish Elite League and captured the league's Rookie of the Year honours in 2004. A year later with that same club he continued to produce and help his club to a junior championship. Eriksson made his North American debut in 2005-06 with Dallas' AHL affiliate, the Iowa Stars. With Iowa he collected 31 goals and 29 assists and led the team in scoring. The following season he became a regular in the Dallas Stars line-up, appearing in 59 games with the club throughout the season.

During the 2008-09 season Eriksson would appear in 82 games for the first time in his NHL career. He would tally an impressive 36 goals for the Stars to go along with 27 assists for 63 points. That summer he would represent Sweden at the World Hockey Championship and help his homeland to the bronze medal.

Over the next two seasons Eriksson would continually hover around the 30-goal mark. He would once again represent Sweden at the World Championship, capturing silver in 2011 and gold in 2013.

In the summer of 2013 Eriksson's time in Dallas would come to an end. He was traded to the Boston Bruins along with Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser in exchange for Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and Ryan Button.

Eriksson would appear in all 82 games for the Bruins during the 2015-16 season and establish new career-highs with 30 goals, 33 assists and 63 points. At season's end, Eriksson found himself an unrestricted free agent and on July 1, 2016, he signed a deal with the Vancouver Canucks.

Eriksson is a two-time Olympian, representing Sweden in 2010 and 2014, where he took home a silver medal.
