Hedberg to start vs. Canes

Devils backup goaltender Johan Hedberg will start today against the Carolina Hurricanes, coach Pete DeBoer told reporters Monday.

Hedberg was 3-1-0 against the Hurricanes last season () with a 2.05 GAA and .913 save percentage, although DeBoer said that wasn't the sole reason he was given the nod.

Hedberg is 12-7-0 in 20 career starts against Carolina.
