Report: Bruins and Carl Soderberg agree to three-year deal
|04.09.13 at 11:53 am ET|
According to Kirk Luedeke of the New England Hockey Journal, the Bruins and Swedish center Carl Soderberg have agreed to a three-year contract.
Soderberg won’t be able to join the Bruins until he is given his release from the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation, as the 27-year-old has been playing in Sweden for the last 11 years, the last two of which were for Linkoping HC of the Swedish Elite League.
The Bruins have had the rights to Soderberg since getting the former second-round pick from the Blues in exchange for Hannu Toivonen in 2007, but he has stayed in Sweden rather than making the leap to the NHL. Soderberg led the Swedish Elite League with 31 goals in 54 games this season.
