Flyers Inside Out
Gustafsson signs for another year

Lost amid the shuffle of meeting the Flyers three newest additions (there was a press conference with Vincent Lecavalier, Mark Streit and Ray Emery today) and the ongoing Prospect Development Camp, the Flyers quietly signed one of their restricted free agents to a new deal.

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson was inked to a one-year contract worth $1 million. It is a one-way deal, meaning the Flyers now have eight defensemen on one-way contracts this season.

They are also now approximately $2 million above the cap. The can exceed the cap by a maximum of $6.43 million up until the start of the season.

Gustafsson, 24, earned himself a modest raise of $100,000 after he finished his season strongly for the Flyers.

Gustafsson played 27 games for the Flyers, scoring three goals and adding five assists for eight points, but was especially solid for the Flyers after being recalled March 28. He averaged more than 20 minutes per game for the team.

After the season, Gustafsson went on to play for his native Sweden in the World Championships and posted a goal and an assist in 10 games as he helped his country win the gold medal.

In 60 career games over parts of three seasons with the Flyers, Gustafsson has four goals and nine assists for 13 points. He was originally signed by the Flyers as an undrafted free agent in March, 2010 after completing his collegiate career at Northern Michigan University.
