The Boston Bruins are moving on from Carl Soderberg.
The draft pick was Boston's to begin with, and had been included in a trade back on March 2 that brought Max Talbot and Paul Carey to the Bruins for Jordan Caron.
Soderberg, 29, is set to become an unrestricted free agent, and is reportedly seeking upwards of $5 million per season on his new deal, decidedly too rich for the cap-strapped Bruins.
The Avalanche have already begun speaking to Soderberg and his camp in regards to a new contract, according to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.
In 161 career NHL games, all with the Bruins, Soderberg has scored 29 goals and added 65 assists.
