While the Bruins dropped the puck Thursday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, it appears the team’s front office may have been up to some work as well.
According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Carl Soderberg is hoping to join Boston after the conclusion of his team’s playoff run.
The 27-year-old led the Swedish Elite League in scoring and is widely considered to be the No. 1 player in Sweeden. The forward was originally a second-round pick of the St. Louis Blues back in 2004, and was traded to Boston for goaltender Hannu Toivonon in 2007.
Soderberg is currently on the Bruins’ reserve roster, therefore he would not have to clear waivers in order to join the team.
