Carl Anton Gustafsson (born February 25, 1990) is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre currently playing for Borås HC of the HockeyAllsvenskan.

Draft Edit

Gustafsson was selected in the 1st round, 21st overall, by the Washington Capitals in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Gustafsson was ranked fifth among European skaters by the NHL's Central Scouting Service.

Career Edit

After being drafted by the Capitals in 2008, Gustafsson played the 2008–09 season with Bofors IK of the HockeyAllsvenskan. He then signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Capitals on May 15, 2009.[1] The Capitals assigned him to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, during the 2009–10 preseason, and on October 15, 2009, they loaned him to Borås HC for the remainder of the season in order to get him more playing time than was feasible in Hershey.[2]

Personal Edit

Gustafsson is the son of former National Hockey League and current Swedish national team head coach Bengt-Åke Gustafsson.
