Niklas Svedberg(1) Providence Bruins

Undrafted, Swedish-born rookie goaltender Niklas Svedberg(1) signed a 2-year entry level deal with Boston Bruins that takes him through 2014 with the organization.

He was inked to a contract to join the team after posting phenomenal numbers through successive seasons in his home country’s top league, SEL.

The 23-year old was invited to participate in the Boston’s prospect camp this past summer and excelled there as well.

At 6’1″ 176 lbs., he isn’t exactly the biggest guy between the pipes but moves very neatly and always seems to be in the right position to make the save when called upon.

He’s off to a heck of a start in Providence compiling a 12-5 record through 19 appearances with a 2.50 GAA and .919 SV%, which is helping keep his team in the running for top spot in the AHL Atlantic Division.

The Swede is definitely a bright light for the Bruins‘ future in net.
