    Eriksson eager to atone for forgettable first season with Canucks

    Loui Eriksson’s first season with the Vancouver Canucks can pretty much be summed up by an unfortunate sequence in the first period of his first game. Fresh off signing a six-year, US$36-million free-agent deal in July 2016, the veteran winger was protecting the puck from four Calgary Flames on a delayed penalty in Vancouver’s opener when he threw a blind pass from centre ice back towards the Canucks’ zone. None were, and with goalie Ryan Miller at the bench for an extra attacker, disaster struck as the frozen disc slid into the vacant net for an agonizing own goal in front of the home fans. “As soon as I put it up there I saw it was an empty net and I was like, ‘What is going on here?”‘ Eriksson said after the game.

    Puck Daddy Bag of Mail: Capitals, NHL vs. KHL, Spencer Foo

    Well first of all, Rich, this is barely an NHL question but it’s technically one so I have to answer it, legally. There are a lot of guys on that team who could absolutely play in the NHL and make a big impact. Ilya Kovalchuk and Pavel Datsyuk stand out, obviously, but so do a couple guys who are now heading to the NHL — Evgeny Dadonov with Florida and Vadim Shipachyov with Vegas, for example — plus a few guys who already have NHL experience like Slava Voynov, Sergei Plotnikov, and Anton Belov, as well as guys who could absolutely play in the NHL if they wanted, like Nikita Gusev.
