Found December 27, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
PLAYERS: Niklas Svedberg
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Today the Bruins made a choice that no one saw coming, they've recalled Niklas Svedberg from Providence. Here's the stranghe thing about it: No one knows why.  Normally when a player is called up on an emergency basis, it is made known that it is on an emergency basis. The email I recevied from Bruins staff didn't indicate that this was the case.  For those unaware, Svedberg was the AHL's goalie of the year last season.    Preview up later.
