From Detroit Red Wings:

Ericsson, 35, has skated in 10 games with the Griffins during the 2019-20 campaign, recording two assists, eight penalty minutes and a +4 rating. Since making his debut with the Red Wings during the 2007-08 season, Ericsson has totaled 125 points (27-98-125) and 531 penalty minutes in 662 regular season games, while contributing 21 points (5-16-21) and 53 penalty minutes over 76 playoff games. The blueliner was limited to 52 games in 2018-19 due to injury, and last appeared for the Red Wings on March 28, 2019 in a win over the Buffalo Sabres. Originally a ninth-round draft pick (291st overall) in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Ericsson is one of just four players in league history to skate in 400-or-more NHL games after being selected with the last pick of an Entry Draft (along with Patric Hornqvist, Kim Johnsson and Gerry Meehan).

The 14th-year pro suited up in 176 AHL games for Grand Rapids from 2006-09, totaling 78 points (17-61-78), a plus-21 rating and 233 penalty minutes. A native of Karlskrona, Sweden, Ericsson has represented his country in international competition on multiple occasions. His international resume consists of skating in the 2010 and 2012 IIHF World Championships, where he earned a bronze medal in 2010. He was also a member of Team Sweden on international hockey’s biggest stage in 2014, where the defenseman captured a silver medal at that year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Prior to coming to North America, Ericsson played professionally in Sweden from 2003-06, logging 128 contests between the Swedish Hockey League for Sodertalje SK and the second-tier Allsvenskan with Huddinge IK and Almtuna IS.
