Boston Bruins Recall Goaltender Niklas Svedberg from Providence

Boston, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, December 27, that the club has recalled goaltender Niklas Svedberg from Providence (American Hockey League). Svedberg joined the team Friday and will be eligible to play in Friday's game against the Ottawa Senators.



Svedberg has appeared in 20 games for the Providence Bruins this season, racking up an 11-5-3 record with a 2.91 goals against average, .907 save percentage and one shutout.



The 24-year-old netminder has played in a total of 68 games for Providence since joining the team in 2012, earning a career 48-13-5 AHL record.  The 2012-13 campaign with the P-Bruins saw Svedberg win 37 games (2nd in the AHL) with a 2.17 goals against average (5th in the AHL), .925 save percentage (3rd in the AHL) and four shutouts to earn himself the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Memorial Award, which is given annually to the AHL’s outstanding goaltender as voted on by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the league’s 30 member cities.  Svedberg’s 37 wins were the second most by a rookie goaltender in AHL history.  Svedberg also became the first rookie to be named the AHL’s outstanding goaltender since Jim Carey in the 1994-95 campaign.



In 12 AHL playoff appearances, all coming in 2013, Svedberg compiled a 6-6-0 record with a 3.29 goals against average and .889 save percentage.



Prior to joining Providence, Svedberg skated in three full seasons in the SEL (Swedish Elite League) with MoDo and Brynas with a 2.94 career goals against average in 64 games.



This marks Svedberg’s first NHL regular season recall.



The 6'0", 176-pound goaltender hails from Sollentuna, Sweden and was signed by Boston as a free agent on May 29, 2012.
