Dougie Hamilton and Carl Soderberg to return vs. Predators, Niklas Svedberg to start

The banged-up Bruins will get two players back from injury Thursday night as Dougie Hamilton (lower-body) and Carl Soderberg (concussion symptoms) will be in the lineup vs. the Predators. Goaltender Niklas Svedberg was recalled Thursday morning and will make his NHL  debut.
Hamilton has not played since Dec. 8 but took line rushes with Matt Bartkowski in Thursday’s morning skate. After the skate, Claude Julien  said that both Hamilton and Soderberg would play. With Hamilton back on the Bruins’ blue line, Kevan Miller will be a healthy scratch.
Svedberg was recalled last week with the team intending to start him last Saturday. However, the team had to send him back to Providence in order to recall Zach Trotman in wake of Dennis Seidenberg ‘s season-ending torn ACL/MCL.
“That’s how it works,” Svedberg said Thursday of his bad luck last weekend. “You just move on and go back to Providence, play there and wait to get another chance. Fortunately, I got that pretty soon [after].”
The 24-year-old Svedberg has appeared in 22 games for Providence this season, going 13-5-3 with a .909 save percentage and a 2.87 save-percentage. Though Chad Johnson  won the NHL  backup job out of training camp, the Bruins had said they intended to get Svedberg into some NHL  games this season.
