New Jersey Devils‘ 3rd round pick in the 2009 draft (#73 overall) Swedish defenseman Alexander Urbom(33) is another one of those players that flies mostly under the radar but with his 6’4″ 215 lbs. frame is looked at with hopes of Pronger-like promise.
In his first season, he played mostly with their AHL affiliate Albany Devils but did skate in 8 NHL games scoring 1 goal. In his 1st call-up this year he got his second career goal in his fourth game.
2011/2012 is actually considered his rookie season even though he skated 72 games in the AHL.
He recently turned 21 years old (12/20/90).
