Red Wings’ Elmer Soderblom: Could be back soon - CBS

Soderblom has been out since Nov. 8, which could make him a candidate for a conditioning loan in the AHL once he is cleared to return. He has two goals, 20 shots on net, eight blocks and 10 hits in 13 games this season.

He’s definitely headed to Grand Rapids. There’s not a reason not to send him there.  Kid will be back next year and ready.
