Updated: November 5, 2013

Boston, MA ( – Bruins forward Loui Eriksson will return to
the lineup after a five-game absence when Boston hosts the Dallas Stars on

Head coach Claude Julien made the announcement following a morning practice

Eriksson left a 5-2 victory against the Buffalo Sabres on Oct. 23 after taking
a vicious hit to the head from Buffalo enforcer John Scott. Eriksson was later
diagnosed with a concussion.

Scott will miss a total of 10 games for his actions, three while awaiting a
hearing from the league and seven once the actual suspension was announced
last week.

Julien also said that defenseman Johnny Boychuk will “more than likely” return
to action, after missing Saturday’s loss to the Islanders in the wake of
crashing into the boards and injuring his back during last Thursday’s 3-2
shootout win over Anaheim.
