Description: Former Devils backup goaltender Johan Hedberg has been brought in by the New York Rangers and will be given a chance to unseat Marty Biron for the backup role to Henrik Lundqvist.
Insight: After a solid 2011-12 (17-7, 2.23 GAA, .918 SV%), Hedberg's production dropped significantly last season and his contract was bought out. He's a long shot to take Biron spot on the roster.

Insight: Hedberg was one of the best backup netminders in the NHL last season, winning 17 games with a 2.22 GAA and .918 SV%. He hadn't started yet this season since New Jersey had not played a back-to-back. Once the games get more packed together for the Devils, Hedberg should get more playing time to give 40-year-old Martin Brodeur some rest.
