2009 Draft Watch: Devils\' past Draft Day deals
The Devils traded down twice in 2008 to select Mattias Tedenby 24th overall.
newjerseydevils.com –The Devils are slotted to pick 23rd overall when the first round of the 2009 Entry Draft gets underway at Montreal's Bell Centre this Friday, June 26 (7 p.m. ET, VERSUS).

Anything can happen between now and the time the NHL's 30 clubs officially go on the clock to make their selections. Last season, New Jersey began the first round holding the 21st pick, but traded down twice to select Mattias Tedenby 24th overall.

The Devils shipped that 21st pick to Washington (Anton Gustaffson) for the 23rd and 54th picks, then sent the 23rd to Minnesota (Tyler Cuma) in exchange for the 24th choice and a third-rounder this season (73).

Jersey's Team chose Tedenby at 24, then took Rimouski's Patrice Cormier at 54.

Central Scouting had these observations on Tedenby: "Small but fearless ... has outstanding speed and stick work. 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 the Tedenby deal is just one of many moves that the Devils have made on Draft day. Here's a closer look:
