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 on Thursday.

Scott 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 Thursday.
