The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher announced a free agent signing on Monday.
After missing out on every free agent he was targeting, Fletcher finally signed a free agent defenseman.
Fletcher signed defenseman Erik Gustafsson to a one year $3million deal.
"Erik is a mobile and skilled puck-moving defenseman who has produced well offensively both at even-strength and on the power play," said Fletcher. "We believe Erik will give us valuable minutes and be a nice addition to our group of young defensemen."
Welcome to Philly, @ErkanGustafsson! We've signed the 28-year-old blueliner to a one-year contract worth an AAV of $3.0M. https://t.co/CivbrJGkDq
