|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
If there was any consolation of bringing in Peter Sundstrom, it was that he at least got to play with his brother on this
side of the Atlantic.
During his 2 seasons with the Caps, he had suffered through a lot of injuries. It especially caused him to miss more than
half the season in 88-89. This was pretty much his last go at it in North America.
He did have some scoring ability, but was never able to come close to what Patrik had done, unfortunately. (To be fair,
it's hard to achieve a 90-point season to begin with.) Although you could make a case for the time he had playing in
Utica, where in 31 games, he scored 29 points.
Like what Patrik did the following season, Peter opted to finish his playing career in his home country. He would play 5
seasons with Malmo before retiring.
