Playing careerEdit

Eriksson started playing for Lerum BK at a young age and excelled beyond others his age quickly. By age 11, he was already playing with the older U-16 team. His talent was recognized at various tournaments and he finally landed on the junior team for Frölunda HC.

Eriksson won Rookie of the Year honors in 2004 at the age of 18 after posting eight goals and five assists in 46 games. A year later Eriksson would post five goals and nine assists in 39 games, helping Frölunda HC win the Swedish ice hockey championship (SM-guld).

In the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, the Stars drafted Eriksson in the second round with the 33rd overall pick. After playing in his second (and currently most recent) season with the Indians of the Elitserien, Eriksson returned to North America and appeared in two preseason games for Dallas in 2005. His professional debut in North America came on October 6, 2005, with the Iowa Stars, a game where Eriksson posted his first assist and point of the season.
