      Predators' Filip Forsberg: Snaps scoreless streak Friday

      Forsberg snapped a five-game scoreless streak Friday by tallying a goal and an assist in Friday's overtime loss against the Flyers. Forsberg's effort wasn't enough for the Predators to earn the win, as the two points came on the only two goals of the night for the club. He'll face a Buffalo club allowing 2.33 goals per game on the road this season, but could face the same netminder he did Wednesday (Linus Ullmark) with Chad Johnson starting the first game of a back-to-back set Friday. Ullmark was yanked from the contest after allowing three goals on eight shots Wednesday, but it's unrealistic to expect the same outcome again Saturday.

      Predators' Filip Forsberg: Assists in loss to Maple Leafs

      Forsberg recorded an assist for the second consecutive game during Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs. After scoring 63 points as a rookie last season - enough to warrant him Calder Trophy consideration - Forsberg has taken a slight step back this season. With 10 points in 15 games, he's on pace for roughly a 55-point campaign, which isn't bad, but most fantasy owners were expecting more. The good news is, he's still skating on the Preds' top line alongside Mike Fisher and James Neal, and he's seeing roughly two minutes more ice time per game than he did last year (19:10 vs. 17:20). As long as this continues, there is no reason to think he can't pick up the pace and finish with numbers similar to last year. Keep on deploying him as you normally would.

      Predators' Filip Forsberg: Struggling to score goals

      After recording four points in his first four games, Forsberg has been held off the scoresheet in five of his past seven contests. After scoring 63 points in his rookie debut season last year, many experts felt Forsberg might regress somewhat this season. However, with eight points in 11 games thus far, he's just slightly behind last year's pace. What's more, his average ice time has gone up this year by almost two full minutes (19:05 vs. 17:20), skating on the team's first line alongside James Neal and Mike Fisher. As long as he keeps seeing top-six minutes, don't worry if he goes a few games without scoring, as the points will probably come in bunches. Forsberg should be in your fantasy lineup at every opportunity.

      Predators' Filip Forsberg: Notches assist in win Tuesday

      Forsberg notched his first assist and second point of the season in Tuesday's win against the Devils. Forsberg got the secondary assist in Roman Josi's power-play goal in the first period. He now has points in back-to-back games as the Predators' improved to 3-0-0 on the season. Forsberg had one of the most impressive rookie seasons in Nashville history, scoring 26 goals and 63 points in 82 games in 2014-15. He's beginning to pick up some steam, so Thursday may be a good time to employ him in DFS lineups.

      News: Filip Forsberg potted three goals -- the final one into an empty net on the power play -- for his first NHL playoff hat trick Thursday in Game 5 against the Blackhawks.
      Analysis: Filip Forsberg's offensive contributions were a huge reason that the Predators were able to stave off elimination and send the series to Game 6 in Chicago.

Forsberg hasn't show any signs of inexperience in his first two NHL playoff games, firing 10 shots on goal and recording a plus-2 rating. The 20-year-old sniper is a lethal scorer who will need to continue putting up points if the Predators hope to knock off the Blackhawks.

      News: Filip Forsberg netted his 26th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
      Analysis: Filip Forsberg finished the season strong, recording three goals and four points in his last three games. The 20-year-old rookie wraps up the season with 64 points and will be playing in the playoffs for the first time in his NHL career. The all-around fantasy stud, who recorded six power-play goals, six game-winning goals and 237 shots on goal this season, is a must-own fantasy option in playoff pools, especially if you're betting on the Predators going deep.

Skating on a line with Mike Ribeiro and James Neal, the 20-year-old has had an outstanding season and should be rolled out with confidence in these final few games. With a plus-15 rating and 226 shots on goal, he's a solid all-around fantasy stud.
    • Preds' Forsberg Posts Three Points In Win

      News: Filip Forsberg posted a goal and two assists in Saturday's win over the Capitals.
      Analysis: In case the Capitals weren't already feeling down enough after trading Filip Forsberg -- a top candidate for the Calder Trophy -- for a pair of lower-upside bottom-six forwards at the 2013 trade deadline, the 20-year-old rising star made them feel even worse about the decision Saturday. While it's tantalizing to envision what he could do next to Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, Forsberg is producing just fine next to Mike Ribeiro and Craig Smith. Forsberg has fallen into a bit of a second-half swoon, but his overall numbers remain strong on the season. He's accrued 23 goals, 59 points, and a plus-17 rating over 76 games.
    • Preds' Forsberg Ends Goal Drought

      News: Filip Forsberg scored the game-winning goal on an overtime power play Tuesday against Montreal -- his first score in a month.
      Analysis: Filip Forsberg's last goal came exactly one month ago, in fact, on Feb. 24, and he'd only managed three assists over the dozen games in between. His scoring rate's obviously slowed, and his plus-minus has fallen off dramatically from its once-incredible heights to a merely "very good" plus-15, but that's all to be expected from a guy in his first full NHL season. Next year, look out.
