Soderberg on way
Year after year, as Carl Soderberg repeatedly shunned their attempts to bring him to the NHL, the Bruins never lost interest. That tells you they see something special in the big Swedish forward.
Their persistence since acquiring his rights from St. Louis in 2007 finally was rewarded yesterday when they reportedly secured the 27-year-old’s release from Linkopings HC of the Swedish Elite League and signed him to a multi-year contract. The last obstacle was getting the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation to approve Soderberg’s transfer.
