Mattias Tedenby was selected 24th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and he went on to play 120 games in the NHL with the Devils and 126 games in the AHL with Albany before heading overseas to play in Sweden.
After spending five seasons with HV71, Tedenby made the move to the National League to join Davos HC this past offseason. On Thursday night, Davos HC defeated HC Ambrì-Piotta in a nine-round shootout, and the winning goal was a ridiculous one that came off of Tedenby’s stick.
Batting the puck out of the air already makes this an impressive goal, but the fact that the 29-year-old chipped the puck up to himself with a backhand that close to the net makes it absolutely ridiculous.
The former Devils prospect has 16 goals and 16 assists for 32 points in 41 games after registering 12 goals and 32 points in 50 games with HV71 last season. In 120 NHL games, Tedenby scored 10 goals and 30 points, and scored 28 goals and 69 points in 126 AHL games.
