Blackhawks Trade Carl Söderberg to Colorado

The Blackhawks have been as busy before the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline as they have at any deadline with Stan Bowman as the team’s GM.

In a third deal on Monday, the team has sent veteran center Carl Söderberg to Colorado for forwards Ryder Rolston & Josh Dickinson.

Rolston, 19, was originally a fifth round pick (#139 overall) by Colorado in the 2020 NHL Draft. He recently completed his freshman year at Notre Dame in which he scored one goal with five assists in 28 games. He’s a right wing listed at 6-1 and 175 pounds. He was a teammate of Blackhawks prospect Landon Slaggert at Notre Dame this season.

Ryder is the son of longtime NHL veteran Brian Rolston. This is from EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide:

“Stretched the zone and uses speed to beat defenders wide. Plays first unit PP. Great lateral mobility. Works hard to give good pressure on the backcheck. Good hands that work to protect the puck. Quick release on his shot, used edgework combined with puck protection handles to evade pressure in the offensive zone, even employed a kind-of ‘stationary spin’ at one point.”

Dickinson, 23, signed the Colorado as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He is signed through this season (cap hit $925,000) and has split the 2021 season between the AHL and ECHL.

    Dickson looks like a minor leaguer, echl ahl this year. Roloson a 2way 3rd line winger type maybe become a top 6.

    This trade looks like a hope and a prayer. Puzzling. There’s no surprises with these trades: Pretty much a lot of readers guessed the players to be traded and I like the trade with Vegas but to me it looks like StanBo looking busy.

    glad he is gone to hopefully open up playing time for a kid, but would have preferred draft pick/picks.

    Reporting Tomkins heading to taxi squad, would seem to say a goalie is going to be moved or on ir.

    Rolston is a 5th rounder from last year so that’s pretty much what we all thought Soderberg was worth – a 5th but Janmark for a 2nd is good work – I wouldn’t have thought that possible

    Rolston has good bloodlines, decent size and good skating ability. Stan obviously trusts the ND coaching staff to further his development over next 12-24 months. Worth taking for a veteran you had no intention of keeping past the deadline. Liked today’s other two deals more for now but this one could turn out very well down the road.
