Dallas Stars forward Loui Eriksson will be almost as much a fan as a player when he skates with new linemate Jaromir Jagr.

"I've played with (Jamie) Benn before, but Jagr is a totally different person to play with. It would be awesome to play with a player like Jagr," Eriksson told the Stars' website Monday. "He can teach me a lot. He's played in the NHL a long time and everyone knows how good he is. It's going to be fun to see how he is in practice and then play with him in games."
