With as many as five pending unrestricted free agents on the roster, rookie Bruins’ GM Don Sweeney has decisions to make.
According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, at least one of those decisions has already been made.
Boston will not bring back center Carl Soderberg Friedman reports. The club is currently focused on re-signing restricted free agent defenseman Dougie Hamilton.
The Bruins have informed Soderberg that it’s “very unlikely” they’ll re-sign him.
Soderberg spent the past three seasons in Boston scoring 13 goals and 44 points in 82 games during the 2014-15 season.
The 29-year-old’s three-year, $3.025 million deal is set to expire next month.
Gregory Campbell, Daniel Paille, Adam McQuaid and Matt Bartkowski are also in the final year of their respective contracts and set to become unrestricted free agents on July 1.
