Niklas Svedberg, who backed up Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins last season, has signed a one year contract with Salavat of the KHL. No financial terms have been released, yet.

The 25 year old Svedberg is a restricted free agent for Boston, but appears ready to test his skills closer to his homeland of Sweden. Svedberg posted a 7-5-1 record with nine Quality Starts against just two Really Bad Starts during his rookie NHL campaign. He was beaten for just 35 goals on 435 combined shots over his 14 starts and 18 games.

Niklas Svedberg stopped six of seven shots in relief of Tuukka Rask during Sundays 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

Rask got the hook after allowing four goals on 12 shots. Surprisingly, the Bruins have lacked consistency in net this season. Both Rask and Svedberg have gone through some rough stretches this year. The Bruins are just one point ahead of the Ottawa Senators for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. Svedberg didn't factor into the decision in Sunday's game.

Niklas Svedberg stopped 23 of 24 shots Tuesday night, but was an unlucky loser as the Bruins dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Buffalo.

Svedberg received the starting assignment after Tuukka Rask was forced to sit out due to "general soreness" and he delivered a strong enough performance to win, but he was outdueled by the Sabres' Anders Lindback. The Boston backup owns a 7-5-1 record in limited action this year.

Svedberg was impressive, stopping 36 shots in a 5-3 triumph over the Detroit Red Wings. He improved his season record to 7-5-0. His goals-against average is now 2.43 and his save percentage is .918. Svedberg hasn't been bad when he's been summoned to give starting goalie Tuukka Rask a respite but he is not a viable fantasy option simply because his starts are so infrequent.

Niklas Svedberg stopped 29 of 31 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over New Jersey.

The 25-year-old's record improves to 6-5-0 and he has a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season.
