  • Forbort posted an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canucks. Forbort helped out on a Mason Appleton tally in the third period. The assist was Forbort's second in the last three games, although he had gone 10 outings without a point prior to that. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to 12 points, 66 shots on net, 79 hits, 113 blocked shots and 35 PIM through 55 appearances.

  • Forbort supplied an assist, three hits, and six blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens. Forbort was the unsung hero in the contest as he made life easier for goalie Connor Hellebuyck and asserted himself on both ends of the ice. His offensive stat totals aren't noteworthy, but it is worth knowing that he's averaging 21:09 of ice time -- easily a career high.

  • Forbort scored a goal on a team-leading five shots Tuesday in a 3-2 win over the Flames. He also provided three blocks, two hits and two PIM. Forbort enjoyed a fine all-around night on the scoresheet, highlighted by his first-period goal that gave the Jets a 2-0 lead just 30 seconds after teammate Trevor Lewis had opened the scoring. It was the first goal in a Winnipeg uniform for the 28-year-old, who's known more for his work in the defensive zone. Forbort had one assist in 20 games between Los Angeles and Calgary in 2019-20 and has never eclipsed 18 points in a single season.

  • Forbort signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Jets on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. The 28-year-old spent parts of last season with both the Kings and the Flames, accumulating just one assist and a minus-5 rating across 20 games. Forbort will likely be leaned upon in more of a heavy role on the blue line for the Jets, as he's dished out 462 hits and 484 blocks in the past four seasons. If the Duluth, MN product makes the final roster, he'll likely be more of a depth defenseman on the third defensive pair for the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Forbort registered an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 1 of their first-round series. Forbort, who was acquired via trade from the Kings at the deadline, had skated in 11 scoreless games with the Flames before notching his first point. The 28-year-old blueliner had one assist in 13 contests with the Kings in 2019-20, and his career high is 18 points in both 2016-17 and 2017-18. Forbort is more of a depth defenseman, although he's seen an average of 18:19 per game during the playoffs.
