All the signs were positive on Monday during Bruins practice at TD Garden when forward Loui Eriksson suited up in a gold jersey alongside Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Jordan Caron and took part in his first contact since sustaining a concussion during a game against Buffalo on Oct. 23.
There is a possibility that Eriksson could suit up Tuesday night for Boston’s home game against Eriksson’s former team – the Dallas Stars.
He was traded to the Bruins on July 4 in a deal that sent Tyler Seguin to the Lone Star State.
“I’m feeling better,’’ said Eriksson. “I’ve been skating for a couple of days now and the head is getting better. I’m feeling pretty good right now. We’ll see about tomorrow. I still have some testing to do.’’
