Soderstrom plays with a remarkable amount of poise and concentration. He never overplays a shot. His economy of movement in the crease – both in terms of his stance and his shuffle – is very advanced for any age or experience level. His technique is tight and well anchored. He needs to ensure that he uses his size to his advantage at the next level and, like many Swedes, he has a habit of being about six to 12 inches deeper in the crease than one might expect. Another dominant season in the SHL – after the book is out on him – ought to create a better feel for his NHL upside.
