He was a member of the 1998 Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings.

A native of Bollnas, Sweden, Eriksson has appeared in 301 AHL games posting 24 goals and 157 assists and a plus-33 rating with Adirondack, St. John's, Syracuse, Springfield and Quad City over the course of seven seasons.

The 6-foot-3, 224-pound blueliner played on the bronze medal-winning Swedish team at the 1999 World Championships. He earned the Swedish Elite League's (SEL) Rookie of the Year during the 1994-95 season and represented Sweden at the 1995 World Junior Championships in which he was named a First Team All-Star in the tournament. Eriksson also helped Sweden win the silver medal at the 1994 World Junior Championships.

Eriksson was Detroit's first pick (22nd overall) in the first round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.
