Carl Soderberg: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Though it's a little early to project the Bruins’ 2013-14 lines, barring key injuries, Soderberg seems likely to work on the team’s third line. Though Soderberg didn't display elite wheels in limited action with the Bruins, he does possess a nice blend of size and skill and, based on his production in Sweden, it's not hard to imagine him benefiting greatly from a full NHL training camp and emerging as a fantasy option in deeper formats in 2013-14.
Soderberg continues to play in his native Sweden, with no indication that he’s of a mind to give North American hockey a whirl.
The 25-year-old is still listed on the Bruins' official site as a prospect, but getting him to leave the comfort of playing in his hometown of Malmo, Sweden for the uncertainty of the NHL may be a tough sell.
A talented Swedish prospect, who doesn't seem to be inclined to return to North America at this point in his career.
Soderberg chose to stay at home and play for Malmo (Sweden) this season despite repeated attempts by Bruins' GM Peter Chiarelli to have him attend the Bruins' training camp.
Once he decides to cross the pond -- and that won't be this season -- Soderberg would join the nice group forwards that the B's have managed to stockpile. Assuming he does make it over, he might have a hard time cracking the lineup out of the gate, but he's considered an explosive player, an element the team could certainly use.
Soderberg has plenty of offensive potential but will probably spend at least one more season playing in Sweden.
Soderberg played for Malmo of the Swedish league last season and potted 15 goals and 39 points in as many games. Soderberg centered the top line for Malmo, a team that spent the season in the second division after performing so poorly in the elite league the year before. He's a solid, all-around player who may very well be one of the best young performers in Sweden -- he's just been underrated for a long time. Keeper leagues should monitor him closely as he will soon be the Blues' second-line center and a fantasy threat.
