Flyers' Erik Gustafsson: Inks one-year contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson signed a one-year, $3 million deal with Philadelphia on Monday.

Gustafsson fell well off the pace he set in 2018-19 in which he racked up 60 points in 79 contests. The 27-year-old blueliner managed just six goals and 23 assists in 66 appearances for Chicago and Calgary last year. If the Swede can get back up near even the 50-point threshold, he'll likely cash in following his one-year deal with the Flyers.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Slides assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson had an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 1 of their first-round series.

Gustafsson is up to four assists through five playoffs games, with two of his helpers coming on the power play. The Swede has added a plus-3 rating and 11 shots in that span.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Contributes helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson posted an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Jets in Game 4.

The helper was Gustafsson's second in as many games and third in the series. The Swede went plus-2 with nine shots on goal in four games versus the Jets.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Supplies assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Jets in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Gustafsson set up Elias Lindholm for the Flames' first goal of the game, just 18 seconds after the Jets opened the scoring. Power-play production is why the Flames acquired Gustafsson at the deadline -- nine of his 29 points in the regular season came with a man advantage. He'll likely continue to see usage on the top power-play unit during the playoffs, which makes the Swede an interesting depth option for DFS managers.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Gathers power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson provided a power-play assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

Gustafsson picked up his third assist in seven games as a Flame. He's up to 29 points (nine on the power play), 103 shots on goal and 86 hits through 66 contests this season.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Draws assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson notched an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Lightning.

Gustafsson has two helpers in three games since he joined the Flames at the trade deadline. That puts him at 28 points, 100 shots on goal, 84 hits and a minus-9 rating through 62 appearances overall this year. A power-play specialist, Gustafsson likely has more fantasy value than most third-pairing defensemen.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Notches power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson posted a power-play assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

Gustafsson made a supporting impact in his Flames debut, drawing the secondary helper on Sean Monahan's tally at 14:37 of the second period. The Swedish defenseman has 27 points (nine with the man advantage) through 60 appearances. He's likely to man the point on the first power-play unit for the Flames -- he's still likely just a depth option for most fantasy owners.

Flames' Erik Gustafsson: Acquired by Calgary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chicago traded Gustafsson to the Flames on Monday for a 2020 third-round pick, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Gustafsson broke out to the tune of 17 goals and 60 points in 79 games last campaign, but he hasn't been nearly as productive in 2019-20, having totaled just six goals and 26 points in 59 games. The 27-year-old Swede will likely slot into a bottom-four role with Calgary, but he should see plenty of time on the man advantage, too.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: On trading block
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson (not injury related) won't make the trip to Dallas for Sunday's game against the Stars, which all but guarantees he'll be moved prior to Monday's trade deadline, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gustafsson will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Blackhawks are on track to miss the playoffs for a third straight campaign, so the fact that they're trying to move him prior to Monday's deadline doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old blueliner broke out to the tune of 60 points in 79 games last campaign, but he's been far less effective this year, having totaled just 26 points in 59 contests. Nonetheless, he'll likely have success if he's given the chance to quarterback a contender's second power-play unit.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Not playing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson was not on the ice for warmups prior to Friday's game against the Predators, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Gustafsson participated in Friday's morning skate and did not appear to have an injury. The Swede has been mentioned in trade rumors ahead of Monday's deadline -- this is likely a precautionary move for asset management by the Blackhawks. Nick Seeler will enter the lineup on the third pairing.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Posts 20th assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson produced an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Flames.

Gustafsson snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The Swede is at 26 points, 94 shots, 79 hits and 25 PIM through 57 appearances this season.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Offers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.

The Swede has found his scoring touch lately, with a goal and six helpers over his last five games. Gustafsson is at 25 points, 87 shots and 73 hits in 52 appearances this season. While he's way off of last year's 60-point pace, he could still cobble together a 40-point campaign in 2019-20 if he can sustain his recent success.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Dishes two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

Both helpers came in the third period, and the first one was on the power play. Gustafsson has produced three straight multi-point outings -- he has a goal and five helpers in that span. The Swede is up to 24 points, 83 shots on goal, 69 hits and 43 blocked shots in 50 games.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Two points in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a goal, dished an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

The Swedish blueliner had a hand in both of the Blackhawks' first-period tallies. Gustafsson has produced back-to-back multi-point outings. He's at 22 points, 83 shots on goal, 68 hits and 42 blocks through 49 games.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Picks up assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.

The Swede now has a goal and two assists in his last four games. Gustafsson has compiled 18 points, 74 shots and 57 hits through 42 appearances this season. If he picks up the pace, a 40-point campaign is doable, but that's still far less than the breakout 60-point effort he had in 2018-19.

January 3, 2020 02:20 AM
Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Adds helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded an assist in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Canucks.

Gustafsson has six points in his last 10 games, looking much more like the 60-point breakout star from last year than his cold start to 2019-20. The Swede is at 17 points, 72 shots on goal and 54 hits through 41 contests. Fantasy owners should still be cautious with the 27-year-old.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Scores with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Blue Jackets.

Gustaffson has scored only five times this season but twice he's tickled twine on Chicago power plays. Averaging over three minutes of power-play ice time per night, he has not been lacking for opportunities, yet Gustaffson only has 16 points through 39 games. He hasn't been the same player that we saw a year ago when Gustafsson finished with 60 points, 100 hits and 115 blocked shots.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Registers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Avalanche.

Gustafsson found Kirby Dach for the game-tying goal at 11:50 of the third period, the second of four tallies for the Blackhawks in the final 20 minutes. The Swedish blueliner has points in five of his last six games, which has him at 15 points, 62 shots and 52 hits through 36 contests for the year.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Contributes power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored on the power play and had three shots Thursday in a 4-1 victory over Winnipeg.

Gustafsson provided the Blackhawks with some insurance midway through the third period when his power-play goal gave Chicago a 3-1 lead. It was his fourth goal of the season but first since Nov. 19, a stretch of 14 games without one. Gustafsson exploded for 17 goals and 60 points in 2018-19, but he hasn't yet been able to replicate that magic. He has 14 points in 35 games so far.

Blackhawks' Erik Gustafsson: Generates helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson supplied an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.
