Observations:

 

September 2013 - Soderberg has stood out in th early days of Boston's training camp and is an early favourite to earn a spot on the third line.  The 27-year-old lost close to ten pounds over the summer and seems determined to make the club out of training camp. Michael Boeckler

 

April 2013 - The contract is apparently for three years, per Kirk Luedke, Boston beat writer. Still needs to secure release from Sweden. But at his age (27) he should get looks in the Bruins lineup immediately. Dobber

 

March 2013 - After finishing second in Elitserian scoring with 60 points in 54 games, Soderberg has finally decided to come to try his hand at the NHL. TSN reports that the 28-year-old will join the team as soon as the SEL playoffs are over. He will not have to clear waivers as the Bruins had him on their reserve list - just in case. Dobber

 

July 2012 - Ever since being drafted in the second round by St. Louis back in 2004, Söderberg has been a top player in both the Swedish Elite League and Sweden’s second division, the Allsvenskan. Söderberg is a big, skilled, creative center who is competent in his own zone. In 368 games between Sweden’s top two professional leagues, Söderberg has scored 112 goals and has added 210 assists for a total of 322 points. Söderberg’s rights are currently held by the Boston Bruins, however he has previously made it public that he only intends to play in the NHL if he was signed to a one-way contract. Evan Hotham

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

 

Based on offensive ability alone, Söderberg’s fantasy upside is bright.
