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
