Loui Eriksson's agent, J.P. Barry, admitted Wednesday that the veteran's future with the Vancouver Canucks remains up in the air after a meeting with general manager Jim Benning last month.
Eriksson and Benning sat down to discuss comments Eriksson made earlier this off-season to a Swedish news outlet, in which he cited friction with head coach Travis Green as a reason for his diminished offensive output. Barry said the conversation also extended to what's next for the 33-year-old.
"Him and Jim have spoken about that and we have to go from here," Barry told TSN Radio 1040 Vancouver. "I mean, we have spoken about a lot of things whether it is staying and playing or finding a new home, so we will need to continue discussing that."
Eriksson, who carries a team-high $6 million cap hit, has scored a total of 31 goals in three seasons since joining the Canucks after scoring 30 with the Boston Bruins in 2015-16. He has spent the past two seasons under Green, and averaged just 14:04 of ice time last season – his lowest mark since the 2007-08 season with the Dallas Stars.
