The Philadelphia Flyers
announced today that they have returned defenseman
Erik Gustafsson to their American Hockey League
affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. He will be in
the lineup for this afternoon's game against the
Binghamton Senators in Glens Falls.
This was the second NHL call-up for Gustafsson.
He made his NHL debut last night in Ottawa logging
over 16 minutes of ice-time against the Senators.
In his first call-up to the NHL on December 29,
Gustafsson spent five days with the Flyers before
being returned to Adirondack on January 3, but did
not appear in any of the three games the Flyers
played while he was on the roster.
Gustafsson, 22 (12-15-88), was signed by the Flyers
as a free agent on March 3, 2010. He is tied for
the team lead in scoring with five goals an 28 assists
for 33 points in 53 games. The 28 assists rank first
among AHL rookies.
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
