Report: B's in talks with Carl Soderberg

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Bruins are in talks with prospect Carl Soderberg to bring the Swedish forward over once his season ends with Linkoping in the Swedish Elite League.

Boston acquired Soderberg from the St. Louis Blues in July 2007 for goalie Hannu Toivonen, but Soderberg has yet to play a game in North America or attend a Bruins training camp. Soderberg, 27, has developed into one of the best players in Sweden. He leads the SEL in scoring this season with 31 goals and 60 points in 54 games.

According to Dreger, if Soderberg was to join the Bruins later this season, he would not have to pass through waivers.
