Devils Insiders Retweeted Eliteprospects‏ Verified account @eliteprospects 

After suffering a knee injury in October, #NJDevils Swedish prospect Fabian Zetterlund's road to the WJC got longer. Determination and a great attitude turned the odds in his favor, @UffeBodin writes: https://www.eprinkside.com/2018/12/5/fabian-zetterlund-wjc … #WJC2019 #WorldJuniorChampionships


“I knew that if I did my rehab and put some extra hours into my workouts, I would be ready to go (for the World Juniors). I just decided that I was going to make it. The World Juniors added to my motivation”, he said.

When Swedish head coach Tomas Montén presented his preliminary roster at a press conference in Stockholm on Wednesday, Fabian Zetterlund was the first forward he put on his board.
“I was really happy for him”, Montén said. “I talked to him after the game (on Saturday) and, you know, he’s an emotional guy and player, so obviously it meant a lot. At the same time, honestly, I didn’t think he was going to make it back in time, but he called me and said he would. He was right.”

Zetterlund managed to make his comeback thanks to a specially designed brace that keeps his knee stable.
“It’s pretty big and keeps it from moving sideways. It felt good right from the get-go. I thought it was going to be uncomfortable, but it fits really well and I don’t even think about it”, he said.

Anders Karlsson, the assistant coach of Färjestad, gives his young pupil high marks for the work ethic he showed during his absence.
“He has made quite a remarkable journey”, Karlsson said. “It wasn’t that long ago he got hurt, and he should probably still be on the shelf, but he’s a gritty young kid, almost built like a bear. He wanted to play earlier, but we kind of had to hold him back.”

Ty Smith with 2 assists last night in a 6-2 win and 1 assist on Wednesday in a 4-2 loss.   All points on the PP.
