Loui Eriksson will return to the Boston Bruins' lineup for the first time Tuesday night since being sidelined with a concussion. He'll have the chance go against his former team as the Bruins host the Dallas Stars.

Eriksson has been out since Oct. 23, when he took a high hit from Sabres forward John Scott. Eriksson suffered a concussion on the play and Scott was suspended seven games for his illegal hit.

Eriksson's return also brings another level of intrigue to Tuesday night's already juicy storyline of Tyler Seguin's return to Boston after the blockbuster deal that sent him to Dallas and brought Eriksson the other way. The duo will likely be linked in some way for the rest of their careers as the main pieces of the trade between the two clubs this summer.
