The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have recalled 5-10, 180-pound defenseman Erik Gustafsson from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, on emergency conditions, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. It is the first NHL call-up for Gustafsson, who will be available for tomorrow’s game against the Los Angeles Kings and will wear #27.

Gustafsson, 22 (12-15-88), was signed by the Flyers as a free agent on March 3, 2010. He currently leads both the Phantoms and all American Hockey League defensemen in scoring, having posted four goals and 22 assists for 26 points in 33 games. He is tied for second among all AHL rookies in overall scoring, and his 22 assists lead all AHL rookies and rank seventh overall in the AHL. Fourteen of his assists have come on the power play, which ranks him fourth in the AHL in that category.

A native of Kvissleby, Sweden, Gustafsson joined the Phantoms for five games last season following the end of a three-year career at Northern Michigan University. He scored two goals and added five assists for seven points in those five games. Over three seasons at Northern Michigan, Gustafsson posted seven goals and 86 assists for 93 points in 123 games.

Adirondack returns to the Glens Falls Civic Center to begin a three game New Year's homestand including the last game of 2010 and the first game of 2011.
