Soderberg scored a pair of goals on the power play in Saturday's win over the Wild. They were the first two tallies with the man advantage this season for Soderberg, who is up to nine goals and 20 points in 38 contests. The 32-year-old is a solid depth scorer for Colorado, but he's heating up with five goals and seven points in his last seven games. He's seeing power-play time for a streaking Avalanche squad that has won five straight games, so take a look if he's available.
Soderberg recorded a goal, an assist, four shots, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Sunday's 6-1 win over the Islanders. The veteran had a nice run in December with four goals, nine points and 30 shots while averaging 17:24 of ice time (2:12 on the power play). However, Soderberg has been beginning 65.5 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone and has logged the second most shorthanded ice time among Colorado forwards. His strong month is likely a mirage, and Soderberg should probably be ignored outside the deepest fantasy settings.
Soderberg lit the lamp twice Saturday in a 6-2 win over Arizona. First, the good news: His two goals put him above last year's point total, as he has 15 for the year. But the bad news is that he's still averaging less than half a point per game, and that's just not good enough for most fantasy squads. Throw in that he's been shut out six times in December, and it's clear he's not a quality option outside of very deep leagues.
Soderberg recorded an assist, two shots and two hits through 17:37 of ice time (3:39 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Washington. The veteran's 13 points through 27 games are just one shy of last season's mark through 80 contests, so it's been a respectable rebound. However, Soderberg probably isn't marking the scoresheet consistently enough to be a serviceable option in the majority of settings.
Soderberg recorded an assist during Thursday's 6-2 rout of the Capitals. The 22-year-old Swede has a respectable two goals and seven points in 14 games -- reminiscent of his breakout years earlier in his career. Soderberg could garner some fantasy value in standard formats if he can continue to bounce back from last season's dreadful 14-point, minus-26 campaign, but for now he's more of a reasonable play in deeper leagues.
