Will Elmer Soderblom Get A Shot To Make Detroit's Roster Next Season?

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Red Wings feel as if tthey might have found a later rounds gem. Yzerman hasn’t said what his plan is for Soderblom. But given the excitement level over the prospect, it seems plausible the Red Wings will give him a chance to make the team. It would be similar to Raymond’s situation last training camp. Raymond had to earn his place on the roster.

Soderblom won’t be the only Swede prospect attempting to earn his place. The Red Wings are expecting defenseman Simon Edvinsson to be ready to play next season.

Soderblom is more of a finesse player than a beastly performer. But his size will be a factor at the NHL level: his size and weight will make Detroit more difficult to play against. The Red Wings already have 6-foot-6 Michael Rasmussen who has taken steps this season to become a hard-to-play against third liner.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
