Gustafsson out 2 weeks
Flyers defenseman suffers knee sprain at Columbus

Following practice on Sunday at the Virtua Center Flyers Skatezone in Voorhees, NJ, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced that defenseman Erik Gustafsson will be out approximately two weeks with a left-knee sprain.

Gustafsson suffered the injury late in the third period during the Flyers 6-3 loss at Columbus on Saturday. He appeared in 19 shifts, playing 11:25 of ice-time.

He has played 20 games so far this season for the Flyers, posting two goals and five assists for seven points to go along with a plus-minus rating of +4, while averaging 16:55 of time-on-ice per game.

In his fourth season in the NHL, all with the Flyers, Gustafsson has appeared in 80 regular season games, posting 20 points (6g-14a) and another two points (1g-1a) in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Gustafsson also helped Team Sweden win the Gold Medal in the 2013 IIHF World Championship this past year. He appeared in all 10 games for Sweden, posting two goals (1g-1a) and an average of nearly 24 minutes per-game (23:59), while also tying for the team lead in plus-minus at +7.
