  • Bruins' Svedberg Signs With KHL's Salavat

    News: Niklas Svedberg has signed a one-year deal with Salavat of the KHL, CSN New England reports.
    Analysis: Niklas Svedberg was set to become a restricted free agent with the Bruins, but he'll instead spend a year in Russia after backing up Tuukka Rask in 2014-15. The 25-year-old Swede played well in limited action, finishing the season with a 7-5-1 record, 2.33 GAA and .918 save percentage. The Bruins have an intriguing goaltending prospect in the form of 21-year-old Malcolm Subban, but they may prefer to find a veteran backup for Rask.
  • Svedberg Lends Bruins A Helping Hand

    News: Niklas Svedberg allowed two goals on 18 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
    Analysis: Niklas Svedberg came on in relief of a possibly dehydrated Tuukka Rask in the second period to protect a 3-0 lead. Rask still earned the win but Svedberg could get the start Sunday versus the Hurricanes.
  • Bruins' Svedberg Allows One In Relief

    News: Niklas Svedberg allowed one goal on seven shots after replacing the ineffective Tuukka Rask in the second period of Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Lightning.
    Analysis: Niklas Svedberg entered already facing a 4-1 deficit and the lone goal he allowed came on the power play, so he's hardly to blame for the loss. With the Bruins taking aim at a playoff berth down the stretch, Rask was given the nod in both ends of a back-to-back set over the weekend, so Svedberg is unlikely to see too much action in the team's final nine games.
  • Svedberg, Bruins Take Unexpected Loss

    News: Niklas Svedberg stopped 23 of 24 shots Tuesday, but was stuck with a 2-1 shootout loss at the hands of the last-place Sabres.
    Analysis: A spot start against the league's worst team had cake written all over it, and Niklas Svedberg did put up a .958 save mark and 0.93 GAA in the service of his fantasy owners, but the lack of a win has to sting. Put this one on the Boston offense for failing to get more than one out of 45 shots past opposing netminder Anders Lindback.
  • Bruins' Svedberg Confirmed For Tuesday

    News: Niklas Svedberg has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Sabres.
    Analysis: With Tuukka Rask reportedly under the weather, Niklas Svedberg will get the nod while Jeremy Smith presumably slots in as the backup goalie. Svedberg enters the net with a 2.43 GAA and .918 save percentage over 15 appearances, and while those numbers don't necessarily jump off the page, he'll make for one of the best fantasy goalie options for Tuesday's slate. The Sabres have dropped seven games in a row and are averaging just a league-worst 1.81 goals per contest, making just about every opposing netminder look good on any given night.
  • Bruins Expected To Turn To Svedberg On Tuesday

    News: Niklas Svedberg is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
    Analysis: With Tuukka Rask having played both ends of the B's back-to-back set Saturday and Sunday, it looks like Niklas Svedberg will get a chance to start Tuesday against a Buffalo squad that is in last place in the NHL, but coming off a solid showing in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Caps.
  • Bruins' Svedberg Stops 36 In Win

    News: Niklas Svedberg turned aside 36 of 39 shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.
    Analysis: Niklas Svedberg notched his second win in a row, and third in his last four starts dating back to Jan. 8. The 25-year-old has been solid in limited action this season with a 2.43 GAA and .918 save percentage, but his playing time will likely be restricted to back-to-back sets as the Bruins make their push toward the playoffs.
  • Bruins Turn To Svedberg On Sunday

    News: Niklas Svedberg will start in goal Sunday against the Red Wings, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
    Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will receive the start in the second game of a back-to-back set Sunday as the Bruins continue to hang on to a the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Svedberg has been a serviceable backup behind Rask this season, accumulating a .917 save percentage and 2.39 GAA along with a 6-5-0 record. He made 29 saves last Saturday in a win over the Devils, and will look for a similar outcome against a tougher opponent Sunday in the Red Wings.
  • Bruins' Svedberg Makes 29 Saves In Win

    News: Niklas Svedberg made 29 save on 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Devils.
    Analysis: A strong outing for the 25-year-old, who started the game after it was ruled Tuukka Rask would be out with illness. Niklas Svedberg is now 6-5-0 on the season with a .917 save percentage and 2.39 GAA. He doesn't see much ation, but he's a reliable backup option behind Rask. If Rask isn't good to go Saturday, expect Svedberg to get the call against Arizona.
  • Bruins' Svedberg To Start For Ill Rask

    News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins on the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start Friday against the Devils.
    Analysis: The Bruins officially ruled Tuukka Rask out for Friday's game due to an illness, so Niklas Svedberg will step in for his first outing since Feb. 10 against the Stars. That start didn't go too smoothly, as he was pulled after allowing three goals on 10 shots in the game's first 20 minutes. Still, with the Devils' 28th-ranked scoring attack now without Jaromir Jagr, who was traded to Florida on Thursday, Svedberg should make for a dependable streaming option in leagues with daily roster moves.
