Boston Bruins left wing Loui Eriksson will be sidelined indefinitely with a concussion sustained on a hit from Buffalo’s enforcer John Scott.

Boston General Manager Peter Chiarelli updated the winger’s status in a release issued by the team yesterday.

Eriksson was issued a match penalty in Boston’s win at Buffalo for charging and launching himself at the forward.

Scott was suspended indefinitely by the league earlier yesterday.
