Erik Gustafsson made his season debut Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens.
Gustafsson replaced Kurtis Foster and was paired with Nicklas Grossmann for the contest. Gustafsson didn't make the Flyers' opening game roster because of a right foot fracture suffered in December during the lockout and needed time in the AHL to get his timing right. "It was kind of tough there for awhile, but you really can't think about it. I was trying to stay in good shape and look forward. Easier said than done, but that's what you have to do. "Now I'm back, and I'm happy to be back, and I feel I've played pretty well here for the last four or five games for the Phantoms," said Gustafsson.
