Flyers Sign RFA Erik Gustafsson For One Year
The Flyers have brought back restricted free agent defenseman Erik Gustafsson for another season, signing him to a one-year, $1 million contract.
The deal will be a one-way deal unlike the two-way deals Gustafsson had been signed to in the past. This will give the Flyers eight defensemen with one-way contracts, meaning a move could be possible before this off season is over.
In 27 games for the Flyers this season, Gustafsso scored three goals and added five assists. Head coach Peter Laviolette gave him more ice time as the season went on and was impressed with his offensive mindset and puck-handling abilities.
Gustafsson is 24 years-old.
