(Bradford, ON, June 19, 2017)

The Bradford Rattlers have signed 20 year old Centre Gustav Larsson Flink out of Bodens, Sweden. The Swedish born prospect dominated the J20 Elite League last season and is expected to be a top player on this year's roster.

Flink was acquired in a trade at the 2017 GMHL Entry Draft from the Temiscaming Titans, where the Rattlers gave up their 5th round draft selection.

Gustav comes to the Rattlers having an entire season of Pro hockey under his belt in 2015/16 at the Division 2 level, where his team was in qualification for Division 1 pro hockey.

In the 2016/17 season, he split time between the Division 2 Pro club and the J20 Elite team. He posted an impressive 25 points (9g, 16a) in 22 games and once again helped lead his team to a SuperElite qualification.

Flink is an established winner and top player from the J20 Elite league that will make an immediate impact to the lineup.

The Bradford Rattlers are proud to welcome Colorado based scout Matt McGregor to the organization. McGregor, 28, is a former NAHL player who has established himself as a well respected High School coach in the Colorado area with a strong history of helping advance talent from the varsity level to juniors.
