No, it's the un-drafted Erik Gustafsson (1988) playing for the Flyers.
Our Erik Gustafsson (1992) is doing good as well, but not at the same level, yet. This season he played very good for Djurgarden in their fight to make it back to SEL (I suppose you know the system of the Swedish leagues were teams can go up and down). Djurgarden wanted to keep him since he is/was one the key players but in the end Gustafsson (advised by his agent) wanted to be back in the SEL (he played 11/12 in SEL). Once it was clear he was on the market several teams tried to get him. In the end he was signed by Frolunda (6th place this season) for next season. My team in Sweden!
And I am thrilled to have him as he seems to be on the verge of a SEL break-through.
I'll try to follow his progress as much as possible and send updates from time to time, but in another thread I guess
