First of all, I apologize that this is a stub and doesn't have the content to truly be a fanpost but I'm not sure where else to express my observations of one of the Devils top prospects. Anyway, my family was in Albany so I persuaded them to take me to the Albany Devils gameon November 6th.. In the game (a letdown 6 to 4 loss to Rochester), Mattias Tedenby really stood out to me. His skating was solid and seemed superior to the rest of the players. His playmaking ability with the puck reminded me of Ilya Kovalchuk's a bit. Although Tedenby is smaller (5 foot 9, 167 pounds) he seemed obviously to be the best player on the ice. In the first period, Tedenby took the puck with a head of steam into Rochester's zone around a few defenseman and behind the net. He then, left it for Rob Davison, who took a slap shot and the rebound was put home for the A-Devs. Tedenby got a secondary assist, but he made the whole play. Later in the game, Mattias gained position in front and scored a Zach Parise- like goal (both are #9). Tedenby may be a little young to call up for the Devils this year, but at a time where most Devils' news is bad, hopefully Tedenby can give us some hope for the future if the Devils don't turn this season around.
