Bruins forward Loui Eriksson has been cleared for contact, Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters Wednesday [1]. Eriksson took contact in Wednesday’s practice after returning to the ice last week.

Eriksson is recovering from his second concussion of the season, which he suffered on Dec. 7 against the Penguins [2]. The veteran winger has missed a total of 19 games this season between his two concussions. Julien told reporters that Eriksson is not expected to play Thursday against the Kings.

Both Milan Lucic [3] (illness) and Jordan Caron (back) were reportedly back on the ice for Wednesday’s practice after missing Tuesday’s game against the Ducks.
