Soderberg scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3.
Soderberg tied the game at 1-1 with his tally 6:07 into the second period. He drew into the lineup in favor of Sampo Ranta, who had played in the last two games. Soderberg has two points, three shots on net and three hits through three playoff outings. He'll provide a veteran presence in the bottom six when he's in the lineup.
Soderberg did not suit up for Game 1 of Colorado's playoff series against Vegas on Sunday.
As recently as Saturday, Soderberg practiced on the fourth line, but he took a seat in favor of Alex Newhook and Sampo Ranta. Soderberg had filled in for Newhook for the final two games of the first-round sweep of the Blues and had an assist, a hit, a shot on goal and two PIM. Newhook had been dealing with a lower-body injury but was ready to roll Sunday.
Soderberg recorded an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3.
Soderberg made his first appearance since May 10 to fill the gap in the lineup caused by Nazem Kadri's eight-game suspension. The 35-year-old Soderberg helped out on a Brandon Saad goal in the third period. While he's not likely to see many minutes, Soderberg provides steady defense and a veteran presence in a fourth-line role. He'll have to fend off Kiefer Sherwood and Jayson Megna for playing time.
Soderberg registered an assist, five shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
Soderberg set up Devon Toews' first-period goal. The assist was Soderberg's first point in five games since he was traded back to the Avalanche from the Blackhawks. In 2020-21, the 35-year-old has produced 16 points, 54 shots on net, a minus-6 rating and 56 hits through 39 appearances. He's held a third-line role with the Avalanche.
Soderberg had two hits and one blocked shot over 15:22 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blues.
Soderberg lined up for his season debut with Colorado, which acquired him from the Blackhawks at the trade deadline. He settled in at second-line right wing, thought it's unclear if that'll be his permanent home. Joonas Donskoi (illness) was unavailable Wednesday.
Soderberg (not injury related) is expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against St. Louis, Conor McGahey of Altitude TV reports.
Soderberg was acquired at the trade deadline Monday via Chicago, as he'll make his first appearance with his new team. The veteran spent four seasons with Colorado from 2015-2018, racking up 57 goals and 151 points over that span. This season, he accumulated seven goals and 15 points over 34 games with the Blackhawks. Although Soderberg's role is unclear, he'll replace Joonas Donskoi (illness) in the lineup Wednesday.
Colorado head coach Jared Bednar was unclear on how Soderberg (not injury related) will be deployed going forward, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports. The Avalanche acquired him from the Blackhawks on Monday.
Bednar said observers will "have to wait and see" where Soderberg plays, adding that how other guys are performing will be a factor. The most likely landing spot for the 35-year-old is as the third-line center, taking over for Tyson Jost, who could move to wing on the third or fourth line.
Soderberg was acquired by the Avalanche from the Blackhawks in a swap for Josh Dickinson and Ryder Rolston on Monday.
Soderberg will be back with the Avs after having been traded away by the club in June of 2019. In 34 outings with the Hawks this year, the 35-year-old center garnered seven goals and eight helpers, including five power-play points. A top-six role with Colorado is likely off the table but he should still offer decent production as a third-line center. Soderberg won't be ready to play against the Coyotes on Monday but could be ready in time to play versus St. Louis on Wednesday.
Soderberg scored a power-play goal on his only shot in a 3-2 win over Florida on Tuesday. He also provided two hits and two PIM.
Soderberg gave Chicago a 3-0 lead early in the second period, redirecting a Patrick Kane feed past Chris Driedger. The goal snapped a short five-game point skid for Soderberg and gave the first-year Blackhawk 13 points in 28 games. Four of his six goals this season have come with the man advantage.

Soderberg put the Blackhawks ahead 2-0 by deflecting an Adam Boqvist shot past Anton Khudobin early in the second period. The 35-year-old Soderberg has five goals, 12 points, 26 shots on net, 35 hits, 20 blocks and a minus-2 rating in 23 contests. His decent scoring rate and physical edge could help fantasy managers in deeper formats, especially if he sticks on the first power-play unit.
Soderberg scored an empty-net goal on two shots in a 2-0 win over Columbus on Thursday.
Soderberg clinched the Chicago victory when he found the empty cage with 50 seconds left in the third period. It was the third straight game with a goal for the 35-year-old, the longest such streak of Soderberg's nine-year NHL career. Soderberg primarily fills a third-line center role, but he does see power-play time and has produced four goals and four assists in his first 16 games as a Blackhawk.
Soderberg scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists in Tuesday's 6-5 shootout win over the Blue Jackets.
The veteran center had a poor start to his Chicago tenure, managing only one assist in his first 10 games, but Soderberg has found a groove with three goals and six points in his last five. As long as he keeps working on the top power-play unit with the likes of Patrick Kane, Soderberg should retain some fantasy intrigue.
Soderberg scored a goal on his only shot and dished out a pair of hits Saturday in a 3-2 overtime win over Columbus. He also went 12-for-15 (80.0 percent) in the faceoff circle.
The first-year Blackhawk tied the game with 3:45 left in regulation, taking advantage of a Columbus turnover and wiring a shot from the slot. Soderberg, a 17-goal scorer last year with Arizona, had been held without a tally in his first 10 games with his new club. While the 35-year-old is a capable offensive player, his production will likely continue to be limited by his third-line role in Chicago.
Soderberg managed an assist and three hits in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Hurricanes.
Soderberg had the lone helper on Patrick Kane's tally at 2:41 of the third period. The assist was Soderberg's first point in seven appearances for the Blackhawks. He's typically seen bottom-six usage so far -- the 35-year-old Swede has 12 hits and four PIM with a plus-2 rating. He's received minimal power-play opportunities, so Soderberg doesn't have much fantasy value in standard formats.
The Blackhawks added Soderberg (not injury related) to their active roster Thursday, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Soderberg missed the entirety of training camp and Chicago's first four games of the campaign while sorting out visa issues and then serving his mandatory seven-day quarantine, but he should be able to begin practicing with his new teammates Thursday. It's safe to assume he'll need to go through a few pratices before being inserted into the lineup, so he likely won't make his Blackhawks debut until Sunday against the Red Wings at the earliest.
Soderberg (not injury related) has arrived in Chicago and begun his mandatory seven-day quarantine, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Soderberg has missed the entirety of training camp while sorting out visa issues, but he's finally in Chicago and is expected to be ready for the Blackhawks' home opener against the Red Wings on Jan. 22. The 35-year-old pivot, who picked up 17 goals and 35 points in 70 games with Arizona last season, should jump into a top-six role once he's given the green light.
Soderberg (not injury related) will not be available for Chicago's four-game road trip to begin the season, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Soderberg was dealing with some visa-related issues and will still need to quarantine before joining the team. The earliest he'll be able to return will be for the Blackhawks' first home game, Jan. 22 against Detroit.
Soderberg (not injury related) has yet to arrive for training camp due to immigration issues, Phil Thompson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Blackhawks have to be hoping Soderberg will arrive sooner rather than later, as he's poised to take on a big role with Kirby Dach (wrist) and Jonathan Toews (illness) both facing extended absences. The 35-year-old pivot racked up 17 goals and 35 points in 70 games with the Coyotes last campaign.
Soderberg signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Blackhawks on Saturday.
Soderberg was a pretty productive player for the Coyotes last season, picking up 17 goals and 35 points, 11 of which came on the power play, in 70 games. The 35-year-old forward will likely skate in a middle-six role while seeing time on the Blackhawks' second power-play unit in 2020-21.
Soderberg will land on the free-agent market Friday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Soderberg is coming off his third straight season in which he reached the 35-point mark despite being limited to just 70 outings. Unless the re-signs with the Coyotes, it will be just a one-year stint in the desert for the 33-year-old center. Wherever he winds up, Soderberg figures to slot into a third-line center role and should see minutes on the power play.
