For years, people will chart Tyler Seguin‘s success and wonder if the Boston Bruins made the right choice in trading him to the Dallas Stars. It’s easy to forget how great of a fit Loui Eriksson could be in Claude Julien’s system, however.
The 28-year-old winger skated with his new teammates for the first time on Monday, CSNNE.com reports.
Much like Daniel Alfredsson in Detroit, the theme seemed to be replacing former Bruins. Eriksson kept his No. 21 from Dallas, which departed free agent Andrew Ference once wore. He’s also taking Seguin’s former stall, which is symbolic enough.
CSNNE.com points out that Bruins rookie camp kicks in on Wednesday while Bruins training camp starts on Sept. 11.
