The Blackhawks’ parade of trades continued Monday afternoon as they recouped a few small assets for Carl Soderberg.

Soderberg, a pending unrestricted free agent, was dealt to the Avalanche in exchange for prospect Ryder Rolston and minor-leaguer Josh Dickinson.

Hawks general manager Stan Bowman has now made three deadline-day moves, acquiring Adam Gaudette from the Canucks and selling off both of his notable UFAs, Janmark and Soderberg.

Rolston, 19, was the Avs’ fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft and recorded six points in 28 games as a freshman wing at Notre Dame this past season.

He’s not a highly-touted prospect but has some value, and the Hawks likely saw him often this season while scouting Notre Dame teammate Landon Slaggert. He’s the son of longtime NHL forward Brian Rolston.

Dickinson, 23, has spent the majority of the past three seasons in the ECHL. His contract expires this summer and he’ll likely be released then.

Soderberg scored 15 points in 34 games for the Hawks this season, even scoring a goal Saturday against the Blue Jackets, but seemed likely to be traded. The 34-year-old veteran center returns to Colorado, where he played from 2015 to 2019.
