    News

    Eriksson Ek scored a goal and had three shots on goal in 10:56 of ice time in Thursday's loss at Detroit.

    Impact

    Eriksson Ek made the final roster and begins the season as the center on the third line. He could get more power-play ice time if the first game indicates that he'll make a big leap in his second season. With four goals in 16 NHL games, he's shown an ability to find the back of the net.

    News

    Eriksson Ek has likely won a spot on the Wild's roster as the third-line center, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Impact

    The Wild could possibly keep Daniel Winnik on the roster and send Eriksson Ek to the minors, but he's most likely going to begin the season as the center on the third line with Zach Parise dealing with a back injury.
