Soderberg was not protected by the Avalanche in advance of the Vegas expansion draft on June 21, theScore reports.

Soderberg was arguably one of the most disappointing players in the entire league last year, following up a career-high 51-point showing in 2015-16 with an absolute dud (14 points, minus-26 rating). The Swede signed a rather hefty five-year, $23.75 million contract with the Avs in 2015, so it appears they'd welcome the opportunity to have someone take that off their books.
