Forsberg (upper body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Saturday against visiting Dallas, Adam Vingan of The Athletic The Stars are just two points behind Nashville for the final playoff spot in the Central Division, so Forsberg's return should be a big boost for what's arguably the Predators' biggest game of the year. He hasn't played since March 25 and will look to build upon the 29 points in 34 games he's amassed thus far this season.
Forsberg is now considered day-to-day with his upper-body injury. Forsberg isn't expected to play Saturday versus Dallas, but he could be back as soon as Monday against the Blue Jackets. The 26-year-old Swede has picked up 11 goals and 29 points through 34 games this campaign.
