BOSTON - Boston Bruins' left wing Loui Eriksson will be sidelined indefinitely with a concussion sustained on a hit from Buffalo's enforcer John Scott.

Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli updated the winger's status in a release issued by the team on Thursday.

Eriksson was issued a match penalty in Boston's win at Buffalo for charging and launching himself at the forward.

Scott was suspended indefinitely by the league earlier Thursday.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
