Flyers D Gustafsson out 6 weeks

One of the keys to the Flyers' early success has been the play of their youngsters, but one of them will be out of commission for a while.

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson had a procedure on his wrist, and is slated to be out until the turn of another calendar year. General manager Paul Holmgren made the announcement earlier this morning.

"Erik underwent surgery this morning at Methodist Hospital. The surgery was performed by Dr. Randy Culp. We expect Erik to be out of action for six weeks."

The 22-year-old Northern Michigan product tallied one assist in five games this year with the Flyers, and also posted five assists in eight games with the Adirondack Phantoms in the AHL.
