Forsling recorded two assists, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blackhawks. Forsling helped out on tallies by Anthony Duclair and Aleksander Barkov in the contest. The 24-year-old Forsling is up to a career-high 14 points, 86 shots on goal, 40 blocked shots and a plus-14 rating through 40 games. The Swede has taken on top-pairing duties with Aaron Ekblad (leg) done for the season. While Forsling isn't the same caliber of player on offense, he's been fairly solid for the Panthers this season.

The assist gave Forsling 10 points (four on the power play), 64 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 30 appearances this year.

It was just the second goal of the year -- and first with the man advantage -- for Forsling, although both have come in the last four games. The 24-year-old defenseman went without a point in his first 11 contests of the season, but he's started to come around in the last two weeks with five points in his last seven.

The first-year Panther has four points in 15 games on the year.
