A dynamic playmaker who plays the game with pace.

May 2023 – Forsell appears on track to be one of, if not the fastest rising prospects within the club’s farm. At just 19-years young, he has already proven to be a thriving contributor in the SHL. He split his season between the Allsvenskan and SHL this season, with most of his success coming within the higher tier. As a bottom-six option, Forsell contributed 13 points over 35 games – fifth among U20 skaters -, and added an impressive four points through seven playoff matchups. Although considered a long-term project, the young Swede’s constant effort, dedication and continued growth impressively stand out. Signed for the 23-24 season, he will spend next season continuing his growth among Sweden’s top league, in hopes to make the transition as a prominent prospect over in North America in 2024-25. The “diamond in the rough” cliché lives on. Dave Hall

March 2022 – Forsell continues to show tremendous value among the Canucks’ depth chart as a late-round pick. Splitting his time between the SHL and J20 Nationell, respectively, the 18-year-old has quickly become a fan favorite and intriguing prospect. With 30 points over 33 J20 matches, Forsell has been a pillar on an underwhelming Färjestad BK (J20) squad. He is a tremendous playmaker and is able to play the game at a high pace. Having recently signed an extension, Forsell will enjoy the next two seasons in the SHL. With his talents still raw, this allows ample time to grow and develop before potentially crossing the pond. There could be a pinch of surprise middle-six potential here. Dave Hall

September 2021 – Lucas Forsell has been drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the seventh round, 201st overall.
