Bruins' Eriksson out indefinitely with concussion
Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson has returned home from Buffalo, where he was diagnosed with a concussion

Loui Eriksson is back in Boston, but there's no timetable for when the Boston Bruins forward might return to the lineup after he sustained a concussion during a game Wednesday in a game against the Buffalo Sabres.

"Loui traveled back to Boston from Buffalo by plane [Thursday] with a member of the Bruins medical staff," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement issued by the team. "After an examination by team doctors in Boston, he has been diagnosed with a concussion and will be out indefinitely. The team will provide a further update on Loui's status when appropriate."

Eriksson sustained the concussion on an illegal check to the head by Sabres forward John Scott, who will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety. Scott was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that could exceed five games.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
