Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson isn’t nearly ready to return from a concussion, but he is showing signs of a progress. He has taken an exertion test and gotten the green light to start engaging in light, off-ice workouts.
“He’s still doing okay,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told CSN New England. “As predicted, he’s taking some steps in the right direction here.”
As the key player the Bruins got in the Tyler Seguin trade, Eriksson is one of Boston’s best offensive weapons. He got off to a slow start this season, but he was heating up before being sidelined.
The Bruins have gone 2-2-0 without Eriksson going into tomorrow’s game against the New York Islanders.
