Eriksson was homesick the first time around and returned home. He had two tours with the Flyers. The second time, as I recall, a shot smashed his knee and he never played again.
About Normand Lacombe... he was suspended by the Flyers for not accompanying the team on a road trip and eventually a hearing involving the NHL, Glen Sather and Bobby Clarke, among others, took place because Lacombe, unknown to the Flyers, suffered from a pre-existing condition of chronic shin splints and required postseason surgery on both legs to correct chronic exertional compartment syndrome. He played in March, 1990 the same month NHL president John Ziegler ruled in favor of the Oilers. Lacombe played the following season but the Flyers bought out the 1991-92 part of his contract.
