The Flames have acquired Erik Gustafsson from the Blackhawks for a 2020 third-round draft pick.
Gustafsson has been held out of Chicago’s lineup since February 19 in lieu of a possible trade. The 27-year-old broke out in a major way last season, scoring 17 times and adding 43 assists in 79 games. Chicago’s struggles on the power-play this year took a particularly harsh toll on Gustafsson’s numbers, as he managed just six goals and 20 assists in 59 games. He is set to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1st.
Gustafsson did not travel to Dallas for Sunday's game.
Gustafsson is expected to be traded prior to Monday's deadline, so he'll be scratched for a second straight game to make sure he doesn't get hurt. Lucas Carlsson was recalled from Rockford (AHL) to serve as the No.7 defenseman on the road-trip.
Gustafsson (undisclosed) will not play against the Predators on Friday.
Gustafsson will draw back into the Blackhawks lineup on Sunday.
Gustafsson will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
The 2019 breakout star has struggled early in 2019-20, picking up just four assists in 11 games. Gustafsson will get a chance to watch from the press box and reset with Adam Boqvist making his NHL debut.
Gustafsson (illness) will be back in the Blackhawks lineup on Friday.
Gustafsson has missed the last two games with an illness but will replace Brandon Manning in the lineup on Friday. Gustafsson has scored five goals and eight assists (13 points) in 30 games this season.
Gustafsson will not play Wednesday due to illness.
The Blackhawks have signed Erik Gustafsson to a two-year contract extension.
Gustafsson was set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season but is now signed through the 2019-20 season. The 25-year-old defenseman was drafted in the fourth round (No.93 overall) in 2012 and has picked up five points (1G / 4A) in 19 games with the Blackhawks this season.
Gustafsson will be back in the Blackhawks lineup on Wednesday.
Gustafsson was a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will replace Viktor Svedberg tonight in New York. Gustafsson has eight assists and a plus-10 rating in 25 games with the Blackhawks this season.
Gustafsson will not play on Thursday because of an lower-body injury.
Gustafsson left the morning skate early and will be held out of the lineup because of a lower-body injury. With Gustafsson out, Rob Scuderi is expected to be back in the lineup.
