  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Pens six-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/16) Forsberg signed a six-year, $36 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

    Forsberg showed zero signs of the sophomore slump this season as he went off for 33 goals and 31 helpers. The winger played in all 82 games this past year, a feat that certainly increases his value for fantasy owners and the organization alike. Given his contributions on the power play, 23 points while averaging 3:08 in ice time, as well as his willingness to fire pucks at net, 247 shots on goal, the 21-year-old has quickly become one of the premier players in the NHL.

    Predators' Filip Forsberg: Could be on verge of extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/10/16) Forsberg's entry-level contract with the Predators is expiring, though his agent is actively negotiating financial terms for an extension, The Tennessean reports.

    Assuming the price is right, Predators general manager David Poile is open to offering Forsberg a long-term deal. Remember, he is just 21 years old but already has two seasons -- 2014-16 -- of 60-plus points under his belt. He's a fine two-way pivot adept at running the power play. Forsberg was ineffective in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year, notching only four points with a minus-11 rating in 14 games -- but it was ultimately revealed that he had been playing through a back injury. Forsberg, a pending restricted free agent, is fully expected to stay in Nashville and the only question that remains is how big of a cap hit he'll cause. Per the report, initial estimates concerning his annual average value (AAV) range from $5-7.5 million.

    Predators' Filip Forsberg: Bothered by back ailment during playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/14/16) Forsberg played through a back injury during the playoffs.

    Forsberg's back ailment may have hindered the 21-year-old winger's effectiveness during the postseason, as the young Swede only managed to notch four points in 14 playoff games after racking up 64 points in 82 regular-season contests. There's currently no indication that Forsberg's back injury will prevent him from being ready for the start of next season's training camp. However, at this juncture it's unclear where Forsberg will be playing in 2016-17, as the 2012 first-round pick is now a restricted free agent, and reportedly has yet to engage in contract negotiations with Nashville. Forsberg is sure to be a highly sought-after free agent after racking up 127 points (59 goals, 68 assists) in 164 games over the past two seasons.

    Predators' Filip Forsberg: Back to form with goal in Game 3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Forsberg scored a power-play goal on four shots in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over San Jose in Game 3.

    Forsberg has been uncharacteristically quiet in the postseason, coming into Tuesday with just three points in nine appearances, which includes a cold streak of seven straight. Finally, the 21-year-old found twine, something the 2012 first-round pick was able to do 33 times in the regular season. The minus-7 rating isn't pretty, but the monkey is off his back and hopefully Forsberg can build off of this outing.

    Predators' Filip Forsberg: Nets two helpers in Game 2 victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/18/16) Forsberg recorded two assists in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Ducks.

    Nashville has jumped out to a 2-0 series lead over Anaheim and Forsberg has played a big role. The 21-year-old scored the game-winner in Game 1 and was dominant offensively once again in Game 2. He'll need to keep up the strong play if the Predators hope to pull off the upset in the first round.
