Mattias Tedenby (face) is expected to be back in New Jersey by the middle of the week.
He suffered a serious skate cut to the right side of his face Feb. 15 while playing in the AHL and required surgery. Tedenby visited with the surgeon Friday and he'll do that again Tuesday. "This is not just a cut where you're stitched up and play," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "He's okay, but the doctor who did the surgery wanted to see him and to take out a stitch here and there."
