Legend of Carl Soderberg is Coming to Life

For years, Carl Soderberg was a legend–just not in the way that you’d suspect.

Acquired via trade from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for once-promising goaltender Hannu Toivonen in the summer of 2007, Soderberg became a myth of a prospect. He was a player whose NHL rights belonged to the Bruins, but he never made an appearance anywhere in the organization’s pipeline.

The truth was, no one really knew if Soderberg would ever make his way to Boston, especially after playing six seasons in Sweden. Now, more than a quarter into the 2013-14 NHL season, it’s hard to imagine the Bruins roster without the presence of Soderberg on the third line.
