During training camp, shooters found openings high on Svedberg. With more games and practices, Svedberg is now making himself taller to reduce the space he was once showing. Svedberg credits goaltending coach Bob Essensa for helping him refine his technique, which leans more toward the athletic than the positional.
Essensa and the Bruins don’t want Svedberg reinventing his game. They’d prefer smaller corrections to overhauls. Svedberg won a Swedish League title and an NHL contract because of his style.
“I’ve never tried it,” Svedberg said of NHL play. “But it’s the best league in the world.
“I feel comfortable with the game I have. That’s the game I would try to play in the NHL as well, just hopefully in a better way. You want to develop your game every day with all the details.
“In the big picture, I’m trying to play my game. That’s what I feel comfortable doing, no matter which level it is.”
