Boston Bruins Recall Lindblad and Svedberg From Providence
Boston Bruins Recall Forward Matt Lindblad and Goaltender Niklas Svedberg

BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, February 24, that the club has recalled forward Matt Lindblad and goaltender Niklas Svedberg from Providence (American Hockey League). Lindblad and Svedberg will join the team for Monday's practice at TD Garden.



Lindblad has skated in 37 games this season for the Providence Bruins, tallying seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points.



The forward has appeared in 41 total games for the P-Bruins from 2012-14 and has netted eight goals and 15 assists for 23 points during that span. Prior to joining Providence, Lindblad skated three seasons (2010-13) for Dartmouth College. In 89 games for the Big Green, Lindblad racked up 29 goals and 51 assists for 80 points. Prior to playing for Dartmouth, the centerman played in the United States Hockey League with the Sioux Falls Stampede (2009-10) and the Chicago Steel (2008-09). The forward skated in 57 games for the Stampede and he accrued 24 goals and 46 assists for 70 points. While with the Steel, the forward appeared in 51 games where he scored five goals and acquired 20 assists.



The 5’11’’, 193-pound Winnetka, IL native was signed by Boston as a free agent on April 5, 2013.



Svedberg has played in game for Boston this season, earning a 3-2 OT win against the Nashville Predators in his NHL debut, making 33 saves on 35 shots.



The netminder has appeared in 35 games for the Providence Bruins this season, racking up an 20-11-3 record with a 2.71 goals against average, .910 save percentage and two shutouts.





The 24-year-old goaltender has played in a total of 83 games for Providence since joining the team in 2012, earning a career 57-19-5 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.





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