Bruins Goalie Leaves For Russia
With Tuukka Rask as the starting goalie for the Boston Bruins minutes will be limited for their back-up goaltender, and for the third straight season the team will need to find one.The Boston Herald is citing sources in Russia that indicate he has signed a one year deal Salavat of the KHL. Svedberg was a restricted free agent which means he could have signed with any other NHL team who would then have to compensate the Bruins.
Svedberg played in 18 games last season, his first as the number guy in net and posted a 7-5-1 record and 2.33 goals against average.
Two years ago Anton Khudobin left Boston for the Carolina Hurricanes and last season Chad Johnson left for the New York Islanders.
