In response to Chowdahkid-'s comment:
Soderberg stopped from playing in the NHL
Carl Soderberg want to continue the season in the Boston Bruins.
But Hockey League will not approve the transfer of the VM aktuelle striker.
- The Board has decided this evening to Carl's outlets in the squad and we want him to represent Sweden, says Hockey League vice-president Peter Forsberg.
Carl Soderberg, 27, have poured into goals for Linkoping in the season.
A successful season and he has had an impact both nationally and internationally.
Of course, Boston, which owns the rights to the Swede, seen success and now they have signed a two-year contract with Carl and want to start using scorer immediately.
But Par Mårts and Tre Kronor want Carl Soderberg.
- Carl is a player that we would like to have in the World Cup. He sits in a leghold trap and it's not so easy for a relatively young guy. We have never seen this before in the League. Players say no because they are damaged, not because they would rather play in the NHL, says team boss Tommy Boustedt.
Settled at meeting tonight
Tonight was settled Söderberg fate on Ice Hockey Federation's board meeting.
And there it was decided that the IIHF will not approve the transfer of the VM aktuelle striker.
- According to the agreement we have with the NHL, there is a clause which states that a player who has been selected in the national team should not play in the NHL. It is a matter of principle for us we release on this can start an avalanche of transitions after the season, said Peter Forsberg.
Can go to the NHL anyway
Carl Soderberg and NHL can choose to defy Hockey League decision, but it does so, the Söderberg not allowed to participate in international competitions in the future. Enables NHL to Soderberg play in North America already this season, it also more difficult to get to a new agreement between the IIHF and NHL. Negotiations have been underway in the spring.
I was kidding with him
