October 2020- To say that his first season in North America was a disappointment would be a massive understatement. Soderlund battled injuries, inconsistency, demotions, and trips to the coach’s doghouse. Despite all this, his talent is still undeniable and hopefully, he can find some confidence playing for Almtuna IS in HockeyAllsvenskan. Don’t give up on him yet. Tony Carr
January 2018 – Soderlund was outstanding for team Sweden throughout the WJHC tournament but especially in the final game against Canada. With the world watching, he showed off his tremendous speed time and again, using it as a weapon especially while killing penalties. Soderlund scored Sweden’s only goal of the game while shorthanded, prompting TSN analyst, Ray Ferraro to comment about how it is inevitable that he will play in the NHL for the Blackhawks, even if all he does is kill penalties. Named the Swedish player of the game, Soderlund’s stock is definitely trending upward. Tony Carr
December 2017- Soderlund will represent Sweden at the 2018 World Junior Championship. A great skater, Söderlund plays an aggressive style despite his smaller size, including some stellar board play where he protects the puck very well. His constant motion gives the opposition fits in both the offensive and defensive ends. Tony Carr
