Soderberg was traded to Arizona on Tuesday in exchange for Kevin Connauton and a third-round pick, TSN's Darren Dreger reports. Colorado opted to sell high on Soderberg, who turns 34 in October and just came up two points shy of his career high with 49 while potting a career-best 23 goals. He'll likely occupy a middle-six role with his new club as well.
Soderberg picked up an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sharks in Game 6. Soderberg had not recorded a point in his previous six games. The center only has two helpers in 11 postseason contests during this run. He is now manning the pivot on the third line.
Soderberg earned an assist, four shots and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Flames in Game 4. It's Soderberg's first point in this playoff run. He also has five hits and nine shots in four games. He had 49 points in 82 contests in the regular season, but Soderberg has had trouble finding his way on offense in the postseason.
Soderberg scored on one of his six shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Jets. Soderberg's 23rd goal of the season tied the score at 2-2 with 9:25 left in the third period, securing a playoff berth for the Avalanche by reaching overtime. The 33-year-old Swede has been a huge source of secondary scoring all season for Colorado, as he's easily set a career high in goals and needs two points in Saturday's finale against the Sharks to match his 2015-16 high of 51.
Soderberg picked up a power-play assist in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Coyotes. The helper gives Soderberg 47 points (22 goals, 25 helpers) in 78 games. He's four points shy of his career-high 51 from 2015-16. Soderberg also has 10 points on the power play, his best mark since earning 14 power-play points in the 2015-16 season.
