The Flyers' tough injury luck continues.

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson blocked a shot from Washington Capitals winger Eric Fehr at the 7:00 mark of the second period of Wednesday's game, and didn't return.

The Flyers announced only that Gustafsson has a lower-body injury.

The 24-year-old Gustafsson has had a rough season. He blocked a shot while playing with the Adirondack Phantoms on Dec. 15, 2012, and missed six weeks with a fracture in his lower right leg. He was finally healthy enough to be called up by the Flyers Feb. 16.

In six games with the Flyers this season, Gustafsson is averaging 18:47 of ice time and has two assists.
