Erik Gustafsson Loaned to Phantoms
March 12, 2013

The Flyers have announced that they have loaned defenseman Erik Gustafsson to the Adirondack Phantoms, according to club GM Paul Holmgren.

Gustafsson was recalled to the Flyers on Feb. 16 and joined the team in Montreal, where he appeared in his first game of the season. He played in the next 10 games for the Flyers, posting two assists and averaging 18:01 of ice time, but was scratched in the Flyers last contest vs. Buffalo.

The Kvissleby, Sweden native has played in 32 games with Adirondack this year scoring 4-14-18. He was also selected to represent the Adirondack Phantoms in the AHL All-Star Classic for the second time in his career but he was replaced on the roster by Brandon Manning due to nagging injury issues.

In 2011-12, he split his time pretty evenly between the Phantoms and the Flyers. He played 28 games with Adirondack posting 1-16-17 and he played in 30 games with Philadelphia scoring 1-4-5. He also would score a key goal in the NHL Playoffs in Philadelphia's series-clinching victory over Pittsburgh on April 22, 2012.

"Gus" had an outstanding rookie season with Adirondack posting 5 goals and 44 assists in 2010-11 to finish second on the team in points just one behind Denis Hamel. His 44 assists are a single-season record for the Adirondack Phantoms.

Gustafsson is also the Adirondack Phantoms all-time assist leader with 79. He has 91 career points which places him second all-time in Adirondack Phantoms' history trailing only Denis Hamel who had 96. Jason Akeson currently has 90 career points with the Phantoms.

The race is on to see whether Erik Gustafsson or Jason Akeson will pass Denis Hamel for the #1 spot in career points and also to see who will reach the 100-point milestone first.

The Adirondack Phantoms continue their longest road-trip of the season on Wednesday night at the Portland Pirates and then travel to Binghamton and Hershey for games on Friday and Sunday. Adirondack's next home game is Sunday, March 24 at 3:00 with a Post-Game Skate with the Phantoms Players presented by Glens Falls Hospital.
