GM Don Waddell re-signed backup goalie Johan Hedberg for another two years. The contract will pay Hedberg around $1.15 million each season. Kari Lehtonen, who seems prone to injury, appears to be the teams starter with Ondrej Pavelec staying another year in the minors. Pavelec was 3-3 with the Thrashers last season. Lehtonen, a former 2002 first rounder, is also a restricted free agent.
