Bruins activate F Loui Eriksson from injured list, send Justin Florek to minors

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Boston Bruins have activated forward Loui Eriksson from injured reserve and assigned Justin Florek to Providence of the American Hockey League.

The Bruins made the move Saturday before playing the San Jose Sharks.

Eriksson missed 15 games after a sustaining a concussion against Pittsburgh on Dec. 7 when he was hit by Brooks Orpik. Teammate Shawn Thornton retaliated later in that game by slew-footing Orpik to the ice and punching him twice. Thornton was suspended for 15 games and is also making his return against the Sharks.

Eriksson has five goals and nine assists in 24 games this season.

Thornton has three goals in 27 games.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
