Bruins fans are anxiously waiting for Carl Soderberg to don the Spoked ‘B’ for the end of the season and Stanley Cup playoff run. Those fans may have their wish granted as Soderberg and the Bruins are close to a three-year agreement with the Swedish forward according to Kirk Luedeke of The New England Hockey Journal.

Luedeke stated that he received “a tip” that the deal was done, but Soderberg’s Swedish team still needs to grant him his release. If the Bruins buy out Soderberg’s Swedish contract, they will have no choice.

Here are Luedeke’s tweets on the Soderberg signing.

 

 

 

The 27 year-old Swede is a wide-framed forward who played center for his Swedish Elite League team. We do not know yet where Claude Julien will put him or who he will skate with, but with 31 goals and 29 assists in 54 games during his regular season – which led the SEL – it is safe to say a lot of talent is shipping up to Boston.

Soderberg, a second round pick in 2004, stands recorded 95 points (45 goals, 50 assists) in each of the last two seasons with Linkoping HC. If he signs before the end of the season, then the Black and Gold should get a much-needed boost for their 2013 Stanley Cup playoff run.
