WILMINGTON — Loui Eriksson was absent from Bruins practice Wednesday afternoon, a day after he missed the game against the Panthers.
Coach Claude Julien said the forward’s absence was simply related to the “minor issue” that kept Eriksson out Tuesday, and it would not keep him out on Thursday, when the Bruins play the Capitals. A team source called it a “minor ailment.”
Eriksson was at Ristuccia Arena, though he did not take the ice.
The only other player missing from practice was Adam McQuaid. The status of his groin injury is still unclear at this point.
