Carl Soderberg may be on his way to Boston very soon.
The Swedish forward, who is property of the Bruins, could soon see his Swedish Elite League season end, which means he might be in position to join the Bruins. It was reported last week that Soderberg was interested in joining the Bruins after the SEL season ended, and that could happen very soon, thanks to something Soderberg did.
Soderberg, the leading scorer on Linkoping, was suspended four games for a high cross-check in his team’s playoff game with HV71. The suspension was actually seven games, but according to one European hockey writer, three of those “games” are just taking away an additional three game checks.
Re: Soderberg's suspension: total punishment is 7 games, although 3 are converted to fines (app $9,000). Actual suspension: 4 games #bruins—

Soderberg is arguably Linkoping’s best player and the league’s leading scorer, which obviously doesn’t bode well for the club.
See the play in question below.
