Soderberg is coming off a season in which he scored a career-high 23 goals. The 33-year-old centre spent the last four seasons with the Avalanche after being acquired on June 25, 2015.

Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic says the trade of Soderberg gives some young centres a chance at more ice time.

The 29-year-old Connauton played in 50 games with the Coyotes in 2018-19, finishing with a goal and seven assists. He’s skated in 310 NHL games with Dallas, Columbus and Arizona.
