The blockbuster trade that sent Tyler Seguin to Dallas and brought Loui Eriksson to Boston is done and has been since July 4th. With reports continuing to surface about Seguins’ partying ways, Eriksson should prove to be a breath of fresh air for Boston sports. 27-year-old Eriksson seems to be more about the game, less about the lifestyle and that should be a perfect fit for the Bruins style of hockey both on and off the ice.
For Eriksson it was an easy decision to waive his No Trade Clause and make the move to Boston. Excited to play with a talented team, there is no doubt that he will excel with the likes of Bergeron, Krejci and Iginla among his teammates.
“It’s a good hockey town,” said Eriksson. “I’ve heard good things about the whole city of Boston. I’ll be ready to play there and it will be awesome.”
Thus begins a new chapter in the continuing book of Bruins hockey.
