Devils sign Hedberg to new pact
Johan Hedberg

Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today re-signed goaltender Johan Hedberg to a new contract. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello. As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.

Hedberg has a career mark of 155-133-33 with 21 shutouts and a 2.83 goals against average in 354 games over ten NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Dallas, Atlanta and New Jersey. He saw action in 27 games last season, posting a 17-7-2 mark with four shutouts and a 2.23 goals-against average.

The 6-0, 190 lb. goaltender also appeared in one post-season contest in relief of Martin Brodeur. His seven shutouts (tie) and 2.30 goals-against average both rank second in team history behind Brodeur. Hedberg played in North American with Detroit (IHL), Baton Rouge (ECHL) and Manitoba (IHL) before making his NHL debut with the Penguins on March 16, 2001.

He represented Sweden at the 1998 and 2002 Olympic Winter Games, 1996 World Cup, and four World Championships.

Born May 5, 1973 in Stockholm, Swe., he returned to Leksand, Swe. for the 2004-05 season where he also played from 1992-97 and 1998-99. Hedberg was Philadelphia’s eighth choice (ninth round) and 218th overall selection in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.
