With the transactions, Idaho has 21 skaters and two goaltenders on its roster. League-approved Opening Night rosters will be announced on Thursday. Fredriksson will be getting his first taste of North American pro hockey after spending the rest of his career in his native country of Sweden.

Last season, he scored six goals and added nine assists in 43 games for Tingsryds AIF in Sweden. Fredriksson was a 7th-round selection of the St. Louis Blues in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft and went to training camp with the AHL?s Texas Stars earlier this fall before arriving in Idaho. Beller appeared in one preseason game for Idaho, not registering any points or penalty minutes.
