Soderblom has been playing in Sweden’s top pro league (SHL) with Frolunda. Last season, the now-21-year-old winger scored 21 goals.
The Red Wings drafted Elmer Soderblom at 159th overall in 2019. It’s early, but the rookie has shown all of preseason that he can be a productive player. Between Soderblom and Edvinsson, it looks like another wave of young talent is coming to Detroit.
