Carl Johan Söderberg (born October 12, 1985) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Boston Bruins in the NHL.

Playing career[edit]

He was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the 2nd round (49th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

On July 23, 2007, Söderberg was traded to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Hannu Toivonen.[1]

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.[2] 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,[3] 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.[4]
