Flyers sign Gustafsson to one-year contract

Tuesday, 07.09.2013 / 5:26 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013


The Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday announced they have signed defenseman Erik Gustafsson to a one-year, one-way contract worth $1 million.

Gustafsson, 24, played 27 games for the Flyers in 2012-13, scoring three goals and adding five assists. He averaged more than 20 minutes per game.

Gustafsson played for his native Sweden in the World Championship and had a goal and an assist in 10 games for the gold-medal winners.

In 60 games over parts of three seasons with the Flyers, Gustafsson has four goals and nine assists. He was signed by the Flyers as an undrafted free agent in March 2010 after completing his collegiate career at Northern Michigan University.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
