As promised, here is the video of Mattias Tedenby's third goal in today's scrimmage at the Devils' rookie camp. (He scored four in a game his team won, 7-2).
The clip is 1:15 long and ends with center David McIntyre carrying the puck in on the left wing on a rush and passing to Tedenby, who drove to the net to put it past goaltender Charles Long.
The goal came 2:16 into the third period and gave the White Team a 5-0 lead. Tedenby would score his fourth goal on a deflection of a right point shot at 3:28 to make it 6-0.
Tedenby attributed it to "a lot of luck."
Not that Tedenby was keeping track of how many goals he had during the game.
"I was just playing," he said, "but, of course I knew that I had four goals."
Tedenby said his best goal today was his second one. He took a pass from defenseman Alexander Urobom, carried into the offensive zone on the left wing and let go a wrist shot from the left circle that hit Jeff Frazee's stick and went between the goaltender's legs.
"It went off my stick, but he kind of fanned on it," Frazee said. "He wanted to go high glove and kind of squibbed it off his toe and it went five hole."
Not that Frazee hasn't been impressed with what he's seen from Tedenby this week.
"He's slippery," Frazee said. "He creates space for others. A lot of guys try to hit him and he kind of slips by them and creates space for himself."
Tedenby has blazing speed, but Frazee noticed more his quick lateral movement.
McIntyre, who was acquired from Anaheim in the Sheldon Brookbank trade on Feb. 3, enjoyed playing with Tedenby and right wing Matt Halischuk.
"It was fun," said McIntyre, who is headed back to Colgate in the fall for his senior season. "Mattias is a great player. He's got unbelievable offensive instincts. And Matty is just as good. He's real smart with the puck. He knows where to find you and knows when you're going to be somewhere. I'd like to think that we complimented each other pretty well."
Tedenby was equally complimentary of McIntyre.
"He's really good," he said. "He's a real explosive skater and works really, really hard. He's a really hard-working two-way center. I liked playing with him."
Tedenby had fellow Swede Jacob Josefson, the Devils' 2009 first-round pick, as the center on his line earlier in the week.
It's been a busy week for Tedenby. He was able to get some sightseeing in on Sunday with Urbom and Josefson, though, during a trip to Manhattan.
"We had never been to New York, so it was really fun to be there and see everything," Tedenby said. "It's so big compared with Sweden. There are big towers and a lot of stores. It was a great time."
They posted some of the photos on their trip on the internet for their friends to see back home.
"We got some Starbucks Frappuccino," Tedenby said. "I tried it when I was in Canada for the first time and I loved it. Urbom hadn't tried it, so I told him to buy one and he liked it a lot, too."
One of the photos posted was of them with a wax statue of actor Morgan Freeman.
"That was funny," Tedenby said. "We were kidding with our friends that we met (Freeman) in New York. Some of them believed."
Some of you mentioned how Frazee told Matt Loughlin that goaltending coaches Jacques Caron and Chris Terreri had adjusted his stance a little. That came at the beginning of last season, though.
"It was just bringing your feet closer together so you can push out quicker and have more stability," Frazee said. "It gives me a lot more mobility. You'd rather start from inside and work your way outside."
Frazee gave up two more tough goals today, including the one to Tedenby mentioned above. He said his week has been, "going all right."
"I've been a little sloppy," he said. "I've got to work on moving from my right to left as guys come down, but, other than that, I thought today I felt a little better. I was playing the puck a little better."
