Carl Soderberg is as close to being a Boston Bruin as he’s ever been and it sounds like he’s only getting closer.
Bruins president Cam Neely appeared on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger and Mazz on Tuesday and said “things were looking good,” but he couldn’t and wouldn’t confirm reports that the B’s and the Swede have agreed on a deal.
“I haven’t talked to [Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli] today,” Neely said on Tuesday. “I haven’t heard yet about any release from the [Swedish Ice Hockey] Federation, but I know from our perspective things were looking good.”
Soderberg, a center, has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Black and Gold. While the Bruins sure could use the offensive depth with Patrice Bergeron on the shelf, Neely believes that if Soderberg laces ‘em up for the B’s this year, it would be as a winger.
“I think we’d like to try him on the wing first and see if he’s comfortable there,” Neely said. “Obviously playing center at this level is not

Kaspars Daugavins was no stranger to the Bruins and their fans when the forward was claimed off of waivers from the Senators.
Not only had Daugavins played against the Bruins with Ottawa, but he gained notoriety around the league for his gutsy shootout attempt against the B’s last month.
He was back at it again Monday morning at morning skate in advance of the team’s game with...
The Bruins will struggle to do much of anything in the playoffs with Patrice Bergeron, and after the center suffered his fourth concussion last week against Ottawa, there was fear that the B’s could be without Bergeron for some time.
However, it sounds like the reigning Selke winner continues to progress in his comeback attempts, and he’s already hit a couple of milestones on...
Bruins defenseman Wade Redden led the NHL back in 2005-06 with a plus-minus rating of plus-35 that season with Ottawa. Redden was tied with Michal Rozsival of the New York Rangers for the league lead.
The plus-35 rating still stands as the best of Redden’s career. His best mark since has been a plus-11 back in 2007-08.
The Boston Bruins are no strangers to winning the plus-minus...
After acquiring some additional depth players to help them in their quest for another Stanley Cup, the Bruins are reportedly close to landing another. Sources indicate that the team is close to signing Carl Soderberg, the Swedish center whose rights were acquired by Boston in the Hannu Toivenen trade to St. Louis back in 2007.
The Bruins have publicly stated that they’re hopeful...
The Boston Bruins announced today that they had signed forward Seth Griffith to a three-year entry-level contract. As a member of the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, Griffith has skated in 54 games this year, registering 33 goals and 48 assists with a +18 rating. The 20-year-old forward’s 81 points rank second on the Knights, [...]
Claude Julien finds himself once again taking heat from fans and media. Why? Because in an awful effort against the Canadiens Claude dropped Jagr to a line with Campbell and Thornton, moved Seguin back to winger, and for some reason kept the Lucic-Krejci-Horton line perfectly in tact.
Fans are mad becuase the Bruins arn't showing the effort they have in past years. And Julien...
The Boston Bruins announced today that they have signed prospect Carl Soderberg to a 3-year entry level deal. Soderberg, who was drafted 49th overall by St. Louis in 2004, was traded to the Bruins in exchange for Hannu Toivonen in 2007. Soderberg has been playing in the Swiss Elite League, where he has amassed career [...]
There weren't many highlights in the Bruins-Habs game, but Alexei Emelin taking a run at Milan Lucic was one of them.
Pro Tip: If you see Milan Lucic barreling his way down the ice at top speed the worst thing you can do is throw your body in front of it.
Emelin earned himself a sweet torn knee ligament and is out for the year. Emelin was the dude who...
BOSTON– Monday night’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes might have looked good for the Bruins on paper, but as is often the case, the final score may have been a little misleading. Sure the B’s rolled to a 6-2 win over a hapless opponent, but this was not the dominant effort the score might suggest.
The B’s did plenty of good things, but they’re far from out of the woods...
It's a good things I was distracted Saturday night by the awesome time had at the Days of Y'Orr/Boston Sports Then and Now/Bruins Daily Viewing Party because if I was home I'd have to write some of sort recap while I was *********. Usually they come out awesome, but I'm pretty sure that if I wrote it while drinking the creature my laptop would have been thrown...
