Boston Bruins' Loui Eriksson Makes Surprising Return To Practice

Written by 

Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson made a surprising return to the ice Saturday morning, skating with his teammates in an early practice session prior to tonight's game against the New York Islanders.

Bruins coach Claude Julien mentioned during Friday's media session that Eriksson had passed the required concussion tests and would be allowed to practice with the team.  However, Julien did not comment on a timetable for Eriksson's return, and made no mention of him traveling with the squad to their trip to Long Island, just stating that the forward was still "day-to-day".

Bruins fans, most of whom spent Saturday morning celebrating another championship duck boat parade thanks to the Boston Red Sox, were pleasantly surprised seeing these tweets:

Eriksson practicing with his teammates means a return to game action should be right around the corner.  He has been out of action since sustaining a concussion on October 23 from a violent elbow to the head by Buffalo Sabres' enforcer John Scott.  Scott was originally disciplined for the illegal hit with an indefinite suspension by the league, which was just recently changed to a seven game penalty.
