The Blackhawks have made a third NHL Trade Deadline day move, sending center Carl Soderberg to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for prospects Josh Dickinson and Ryder Rolston.

Soderberg has been a nice depth player for Chicago this season. Signed in wake of the Kirby Dach injury, Soderberg scored seven goals and added eight assists in 34 games. Soderberg played well, mostly in a bottom-six role in 2021. However, Soderberg adds incredible depth for the Avs, who are leading the Honda West Division with 60 points. The Avalanche are also very familiar with Soderberg, who spent four seasons with the Avs from 2015-2019.

Josh Dickinson was an undrafted signing for the Colorado Avalanche back in 2018. He played one season at Clarkson University before signing with Colorado. In three years with the Avalanche organization, Dickinson has split time between the AHL and ECHL.

Ryder Rolston was drafted by the Avalanche in the 5th round, 139th overall, of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Rolston is a freshman at the University of Notre Dame, playing with Blackhawks 3rd round pick in the 2020 draft, Landon Slaggert. The son of former NHLer Brian Rolston has struggled in his freshman season at Notre Dame, but that is not unusual. He is still viewed as a high-upside prospect.

At the end of the day, Rolston appears to be the higher-valued piece of the two. Dickinson could potentially play in either Rockford or Indy, but Rolston will be a player to keep an eye on at Notre Dame as he grows into his game at the collegiate level. Once again, Stan Bowman has made a trade that shouldn’t hurt the current state of the Blackhawks roster all that much.
