  • Rangers' Erik Gustafsson: Provides helper in win

    Gustafsson notched an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-0 win over the Senators.

    This was Gustafsson's first point in his last seven appearances. The 32-year-old defenseman ends the regular season with 31 points, 93 shots on net, 66 blocked shots, 63 hits and a plus-3 rating over 76 appearances. He'll likely remain in a bottom-four role as a power-play specialist to begin the playoffs.

  • Rangers' Erik Gustafsson: Powers up with assist

    Gustafsson recorded a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Blues.

    The well-traveled Gustafsson has been on eight different NHL teams, including the Oilers, who never actually utilized the Swedish defenseman after selecting him in the fourth round (No. 93 overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He's found a home in the Big Apple to the tune of five goals and 22 assists, nine of which have taken place on the power play. The Rangers rank fifth in power-play percentage, converting 83.3 percent of their chances, so take that into account when deciding between Gustafsson and others of that ilk.

    Gustafsson picked up an assist, a blocked shot, a hit, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Devils.

With five goals and 21 assists through 56 games, Gustafsson's on pace to finish just shy of last season's 42 points.

  • Rangers' Erik Gustafsson: Notches three helpers in win

    Gustafsson logged three assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Two of Gustafsson's three assists came on the power play in the Rangers' three-goal victory. The 31-year-old blueliner now has four helpers in his last two contests after going eight games without a point. Gustafsson's been relegated back to a bottom-pairing role since Adam Fox returned from injury, limiting his scoring production, though he's had a solid campaign overall with 19 points (three goals, 16 assists) through 30 outings in his first season with New York.

In his first year with the Rangers, he has started strong with three goals and six points in 11 games. With Adam Fox sidelined with a lower-body injury, Gustafsson will be expected to take on the role of power-play quarterback on the Rangers' top power-play unit.

Gustafsson has a pair of two-point games to go with four scoreless outings this season, giving him two goals and four assists. He's also produced 10 shots on net, seven blocked shots and a plus-5 rating while working on the third pairing.

  • Rangers' Erik Gustafsson: Two points in loss

    His goal came just 50 seconds into the game to push the Rangers up 1-0. Gustafsson is coming off a 42-point season between Washington and Toronto and has a 60-point season on his resume. However, his fantasy value with the Rangers is limited behind Adam Fox and K'Andre Miller.
