RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Svedberg and Chad Johnson are expected to contend for the Bruins' No. 2 goaltending job behind Tuukka Rask this coming season. Svedberg is coming off an outstanding campaign for AHL Providence (37-8-2 record, 2.17 GAA and a .925 save percentage in 48 games), so we like his chances of sticking with the big club if he has a sharp training camp.
Svedberg, who recorded a 2.47 GAA and a .912 save percentage for Brynas IF Gavle of the Swedish Elite League this past season, will almost assuredly start the coming campaign with AHL Providence or ECHL Reading. With Tim Thomas no longer around, the 22-year-old Svedberg gives the B's some upside netminding depth behind Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin.
