On April 9, 2013, Söderberg reached a multi-year agreement with the Bruins and secured his release from his Swedish team.
On April 11, 2013, the Swedish Ice Hockey Association (SIHF) blocked the release of Söderberg to the NHL to secure his position on the national team for the upcoming IIHF World Championships being co-hosted by the country. In the following days, Söderberg refused to play for the Swedish National Team.
The Boston Bruins signed Söderberg to a three-year, one-way contract through the 2014–15 season on April 13, 2013. In only his second game with the Bruins, Söderberg assisted on the first goal (scored by Jaromir Jagr) of a 3-0 win over the Florida Panthers on April 21, 2013 for his first NHL point, and scored his first NHL goal on October 31, 2013, beating Jonas Hiller as the first Bruins goal of a 3-2 home rink shootout victory over the visiting Anaheim Ducks.
