Flyers Sign Defenseman

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Erik Gustafsson to a one-year, $1 million contract according to TSN. The 24 year-old blueliner from Sweden saw action in 27 games with the Flyers in 2012-13, notching three goals and five assists. The Hockey News notes his assets as a smart player who moves the puck well.

Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer notes via Twitter that the Flyers now have nine defenseman for seven roster spots. Moves, most likely trades, will need to be made to clear roster room and get under next season's lowered cap.
