<li> Peter Chiarelli sees prototypical power winger traits in Carl Söderberg, who is finding his transition from center to wing going better than he thought. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Loui Eriksson finally got to play with Patrice Bergeron in Detroit, and now looks forward to showing Boston what he can do. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Niklas Svedberg has one more chance to lay claim to the backup goalie position. [<a href="">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>
