The Bruins have recalled goalie Niklas Svedberg from AHL Providence, the team announced Friday. The 24-year-old is 11-5-3 with a 2.91 goals against average, .907 save percentage and one shutout this season. Last year, Svedberg was voted the AHL’s most outstanding goalie after going 37-8-2 with a 2.17 GAA, .925 save percentage and four shutouts.
If Svedberg gets into a game with the Bruins, it would be his NHL debut. The Bruins kick off a home-and-home with the Senators at TD Garden on Friday before heading up to Ottawa on Saturday.
