Player Profile: Mattias Tedenby

Mattias TedenbyNUMBER: 21
HEIGHT: 5′ 10″
POSITION: Right Wing
BORN: February 21, 1990
BIRTHPLACE: Vetlanda, Sweden

Mattias Tedenby was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the first round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. When he was called up in 2010, he got right to work. In his NHL debut in November, he recorded an assist. It was only 2 days later that he got his first NHL goal on a power play against the Edmonton Oilers.

He had plenty of experience playing for several teams in Sweden for elite league clubs, and it shows. Jacques Lemaire has suggested that Tedenby has the potential to be another Brian Gionta with his control and quickness. Tedenby is small, but plays an aggressive game and isn’t scared to get involved. He gets to where he needs to be, and quickly.

Tedenby has definitely won over a lot of Devils fans this past season and is a new fan favorite. He hasn’t racked up any awards just yet, so for now we’ll keep our eyes on him and watch him in action.

You can get your Tedenby (and Devils) fix tonight on MSG Plus by tuning in to their Summer Ice series. At 8PM tonight they’ll be airing the 2/8/11 game against the Hurricanes where Tedenby scores two goals eventually leading to an OT win.
