Playing career

Eriksson was drafted 22nd overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings.

In his National Hockey League career, Eriksson has played for the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets. He has also played for the St. John's Maple Leafs, Syracuse Crunch and Springfield Falcons of the AHL.[1] In 1999 the Red Wings sent Eriksson and two first round draft picks to the Chicago Blackhawks for defenseman Chris Chelios.

After a two-year absence from the NHL, Eriksson re-signed with the Columbus Blue Jackets on July 2, 2006, for a one-year deal.[2] After a season in Columbus, he then signed with the Calgary Flames. This would be Eriksson's second time signing with the Calgary Flames. He signed a contract in 2004, but never played due to the NHL lockout, but instead played for HV71 in the Swedish Elite League.

On June 26, 2008, Calgary placed him on waivers. After being placed on waivers again by Calgary during training camp and not being picked up he was sent to the Quad City Flames of the American Hockey League. He was recalled by the Flames for the beginning of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, and appeared in their first game as well as game 6.

On Dec 21, 2009, Eriksson played his first game with the Phoenix Coyotes.[3]

On March 3, 2010 Eriksson was traded from Phoenix to the NY Rangers for Miika Wiikman and a 2011 7th round pick.
