Carl Soderberg ‘highly doubtful’ for Thursday’s season-opener

Claude Julien told reporters at Tuesday’s practice in Vermont that forward Carl Soderberg is “highly doubtful” to play in Thursday’s season-opener [1] with swelling in his ankle. Soderberg was listed as being on injured reserve when NHL’s opening-day rosters were released Tuesday.

Julien added that David Krejci, who also did not practice Tuesday, will skate Wednesday, making his status for Thursday a lot better than Soderberg’s.

With Soderberg likely out, expect Jordan Caron to play in his place as the third-line left wing.

Soderberg suffered the injury in the preseason finale Friday, when he hit a right in the Bruins’ exhibition against the Jets.
