Fantasy Summary

Depending on his progress, Forsberg could be a viable NHL starter one day.


Observations

February 2015 – Forsberg has been quite the pleasant surprise for a 7th-round pick. He has emerged as the starting goalie for the Springfield Falcons, currently holding an 18-7 record (2.04 GAA and .927 SV%). With injuries to McElhinney and Brobrovsky, Forsberg actually saw a few NHL starts. They weren’t great showings – a 4.25 GAA and .861 SV% – but he’s obviously earned the trust of the organization and could see more starts in the near future.  – Chris Bagwell

 

April 2014 – Forsberg is in his second, non-consecutive season with MODO of the Swedish Hockey League. He shared time with Linus Ullmark, who started the majority of the games. While Ullmark went 14-15-4, Forsberg posted a 10-8-4 record with a 2.44 GAA and .920 SV%. He also played one game for the Springfield Falcons, allowing one goal on 26 shots in his first win. Forsberg has a ton of raw talent, but needs to refine some of his technical abilities. Chris Bagwell
