The Boston Bruins are in discussions with forward prospect Carl Soderberg, according to Darren Dreger of TSN on Thursday night.

Soderberg is currently playing with Linköpings HC of the Swedish Elite League. According to Dreger, he potentially could join the Bruins after the team is finished with the playoffs. Originally acquired by Boston in 2007 via trade with the St. Louis Blues, Soderberg would not have to clear waivers to join the Bruins.

Through 54 games this season, the 27-year-old forward has compiled 31 goals and 29 assists for 60 points. He currently leads the SEL in scoring this season.

Dreger reports that the Bruins view Soderberg as a versatile forward who could play wing or center on their second line. According to several reports over the last few weeks, the team has interest in acquiring a forward to supplement their top-six. It remains unclear whether adding Soderberg would satisfy their need, but it seems like it would be a step in the right direction.
