Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Scores on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson scored a power-play goal on two shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Jets in Game 4.

The Swede opened the scoring at 8:01 of the first period. Gustafsson has picked up three points in seven playoff contests while filling in for Jon Merrill (undisclosed). With just three shots on net, three hits and two blocked shots, Gustafsson hasn't provided much non-scoring production while in the lineup.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Provides power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson recorded a power-play assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 7.

The helper on Corey Perry's second-period goal was Gustafsson's first point in three playoff contests. The Swedish blueliner is likely to remain in the lineup as long as Jon Merrill (undisclosed) is out, which is believed to be a 1-to-2 week absence. Gustafsson will likely see limited time on even strength while often serving as a power-play specialist.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Logs two helpers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustaffsson had two assists, one on the power play, and five shots on net over 12:13 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

Gustafsson had a hand in both Montreal goals, sliding secondary assists on scores by Nick Suzuki and Tyler Toffoli, who scored on the power play. With Jonathan Drouin (illness) unavailable for the second straight game, Gustafsson was in the lineup, and once again the defenseman skated as a forward on the fourth line. He could remain on the active roster for Monday's series finale against Calgary, as Drouin, Paul Byron (lower body) and Tomas Tatar (lower body) are dealing with injuries.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Has minimal role Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson finished plus-1 over 7:12 of ice time in Friday's 4-2 loss to Calgary.

Gustafsson was a pre-game replacement for Jonathan Drouin (illness), giving Montreal a seventh defenseman for the game. His night included 1:07 on the power play.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: In lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson will make his Canadiens debut Friday against Calgary, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Montreal will use Gustafsson as the seventh defenseman with Jonathan Drouin (undisclosed) not available for Friday's game. The 29-year-old blueliner tallied 10 points in 24 games with the Flyers previously this season.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Practices with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and practiced with the Canadiens for the first time Wednesday.

Gustafsson isn't expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Edmonton, but he could make his Montreal debut soon. He picked up 10 points in 24 games with the Flyers before being dealt to the Canadiens at the trade deadline.

Canadiens' Erik Gustafsson: Traded to Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens acquired Gustafsson from the Flyers via trade Monday for a 2022 seventh-round draft pick, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

For a second straight season, Gustafsson is on the move at the trade deadline. The Canadiens lost Victor Mete on waivers to the Senators on Monday, and Gustafsson will help fill the void as the Habs make a playoff push. Gustafsson fell out of the rotation in Philadelphia, but he managed to post 10 points -- four with the man advantage -- through 24 games with the Flyers this season. He'll likely need to quarantine for seven days after arriving in Montreal.

Flyers' Erik Gustafsson: Nabs first goal of 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson registered a goal and an assist with two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Gustafsson cranked a one-timer from the point to open the scoring 7:48 into the game, collecting his first goal of the season. He also assisted on Shayne Gostisbehere's power-play tally later in the period. The 28-year-old has provided nine points through his first 14 games as a Flyer.

Flyers' Erik Gustafsson: Finding offensive touch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

Gustafsson was the only player from either team to post a multi-point night. He had just 29 points in 66 games split between Chicago and Calgary last season after a 60-point campaign with the Blackhawks the year before, but Gustafsson seems to have rediscovered his offense in Philadelphia with five helpers through seven games.

Flyers' Erik Gustafsson: Two PP helpers in Flyers debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustafsson notched two power-play assists in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

The 28-year-old got his Philly tenure off to a flying start, picking up helpers on two goals with the man advantage in the first period. Gustafsson had a disappointing 2019-20 campaign but piled up 17 goals and 60 points for Chicago the season before, and given the firepower around him on his new club, he could be poised for a rebound.

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.
