Mattias Tedenby
newjerseydevils.com – The Devils have selected forward Mattias Tedenby with their first-round pick, 24th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Tedenby, 18, was ranked third among European players by Central Scouting. The native of Vetlanda, Sweden, played his first games (23) in Sweden's elite league in January with the top team, HV 71, scoring six points (3-3-6) to finish third among junior-aged players playing in the League.

Listed at 5-10, 176 lbs., Tedenby had 20 points (10-10-20) playing for the HV 71 Junior team and was a key player on Sweden's Under-18 team at the IIHF World Championships – he tied for the team lead in points with eight (4-4-8) in six games.

New Jersey twice traded down in the opening round, dealing its 21st pick to Washington for the 23rd and 54th picks, then moving the 23rd pick to Minnesota in exchange for the 24th pick and a third-rounder in 2009.

Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb says:
"Mattias is excellent on every shift. He has outstanding speed, stick work and work ethic. He is small but fearless – he takes hits and always comes back. He looks like a young Saku Koivu, he creates scoring chances with his outstanding skating and is very difficult to stop when he is at full speed. He has excellent balance and quick, smooth hands, but needs to improve on his defensive awareness."
