Devils open 2009 rookie camp in Newark

The first session of rookie camp featured the Devils' blueline prospects.

newjerseydevils.com – While the biggest Devils news of the day was Jacques Lemaire's return as head coach, the club also opened its annual rookie camp Monday at AmeriHealth Pavilion.

A pair of first-round selections hit the ice as Devils for the first time: Mattias Tedenby, the 24th pick last season, and Jacob Josefson, the 20th pick in this year's Entry Draft. Monday's sessions had defensemen out at 9 a.m., followed by the forwards at 10:45.

Tedenby
Tedenby was excited to be skating at Prudential Center in spite of having to break in new skates.

"Doesn't feel so good in new skates, and for being on the ice for the first time in a long time, but it's getting better," said Tedenby, who had not been on the ice since his HV71 squad lost the Swedish championship to Farjestad last season.

Tedenby and Josefson know each other well: they were teammates on the Swedish national team that lost to Canada in the gold medal game of the 2009 World Junior Championship.

Tedenby is a slick-skating left wing who compares his game to former Montreal Canadien Mats Naslund. Josefson favors a two-way game and models his play after Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg.

For now though, they're enjoying their first chance to skate as Devils. And having a fellow countryman around can help make a foreign environment seem just a little more familiar.

"It makes it much easier – my English isn't that good," said Tedenby, who will skate at least one more season in Sweden. "I'm going to take it one year at a time," he said.

Josefson will return to Djurgardens for one more year. "Then we will see," Josefson said.

"It's nice to come here and see what it's all about with the arena," he said, adding that he hadn't skated in while either. "It should be a lot of fun to practice this week."
