‘Good-bye, I’m Chad Johnson’: Bruins sign Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one-way contract

The Chad “Hi I’m Chad Johnson” Johnson era has ended. The Boston Bruins have announced that they’ve signed Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one way contract. In short, it means he’ll be Tuukka Rask’s backup next season and Johnson is hitting the unemployment line.

For Providence Svedberg had a 25-15-4 record with a 2.63 goals against average and .910 save percentage and two shutouts in 45 appearances.

And while it means no more of this…

…it does mean more of this…

It’s a good cap move for a team needing some cap space. We’ll still miss you, Chad Johnson!
