The 37-year-old was originally a second-round pick of the St. Louis Blues back in 2004, but remained in Sweden. Three years later, the Blues traded Soderberg to the Boston Bruins, who he went on to sign with in 2013.
Soderberg headed over to North America in April 2013, after the SHL season ended and went on to appear in 597 career games between then and 2021 with the Bruins, Avalanche and Coyotes. In those 597 games, the Malmo native had 297 points (110 goals, 187 assists), 210 penalty minutes and was a minus-25. He went on to add 14 points in 45 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
In 2021, Soderberg decided to return to his home country and played the final two seasons of his career in the Swedish Hockey League with the Malmo Redhawks.
Congratulations to Carl Soderberg on a stellar professional hockey career and all the best in retirement!
