The New Jersey Devils
Friday signed two of their top prospects, forwards Mattias Tedenby
and Jacob Josefson
Tedenby, 20, completed his second full season with HV 71 (Sweden) in 2009-10, where he scored 12 goals and 7 assists with 30 penalty minutes in 44 games. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound left wing added 2 goals and 3 assists with 6 penalty minutes in 16 playoff games en-route to the club's second Swedish League championship in three years.
Tedenby also represented Sweden at each of the last two World Junior Championships winning a silver medal in 2009 and a bronze in 2010 (3 goals, 6 points).
Tedenby was New Jersey's first choice, No. 24, at the 2008 Entry Draft.
Josefson, 19, will attend his first NHL training camp after finishing his second full season with Djurgardens (Sweden). The 6-foot, 190 pound center scored 8 goals and 12 assists with 20 penalty minutes in 43 regular-season games in 2009-10. Josefson scored 3 goals and 2 assists with 4 penalty minutes in 14 playoff appearances as Djurgardens advanced to the Swedish League finals.
Josefson recorded 3 goals and 3 assists in six games while representing Sweden for the second-consecutive year at the World Junior Championships. He was drafted by New Jersey in the first round, No. 20, in 2009.
