Top Filip Forsberg News

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Enters virus protocols

    Forsberg was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday.

    Forsberg's absence will be a huge one for the Predators, as he's posted four goals and two assists in his last three games. The Swede will be eligible to return once he's provided two negative tests for the virus. Matt Luff and Philip Tomasino will likely be in the lineup Saturday, with the latter likely to absorb some power-play time as well.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Two power-play points in win

    Forsberg scored a goal on two shots and added an assist, both on the power play, in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Forsberg was in on both of the Predators' first-period goals. The Swede has been excellent lately with seven goals and six assists in his last nine outings -- a span in which he's only been held off the scoresheet once. The winger is up to 29 points (eight on the power play), 76 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 26 appearances.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Paces offense with two goals

    Forsberg scored twice on four shots and added five hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Forsberg opened the scoring at 2:41 of the second period, and his individual effort for his second goal in the third stood as the game-winner. The 27-year-old has notched four multi-point games this year, and he has six tallies and five assists in his last eight outings. Overall, the Swede has been excellent in a top-six role with 17 goals, 27 points, 74 shots on net and a plus-2 rating in 25 contests.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Best pace of career

    Forsberg scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 6-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    He took a sweet pass from Matt Duchene and wired a wrister from inside the left circle at just the 1:02 mark of the first period. Forsberg's assist came when he collected a loose puck near the left boards and hit the tape of Ryan Johansen, who deftly slipped a backhand behind Colin Delia. Forsberg has points in six of his last seven games and nine points (four goals, five assists) in that span. And he has 25 points, including 15 goals, in 24 games this season. That's the best point-per-game pace of his career.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Registers power-play assist

    Forsberg recorded a power-play assist, two shots on net and three blocked shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Forsberg set up Colton Sissons' third-period tally. The 27-year-old Forsberg has two goals and four helpers during his four-game point streak. For the season, the talented Swede has 22 points (six on the power play), 61 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 21 contests.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Three points in Thursday's win

    Forsberg scored twice and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Forsberg tallied in the first and second periods, with the latter goal standing as the game-winner. The 27-year-old is up to 13 goals, 21 points, 59 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 20 appearances this season. He's netted four game-winning tallies and five power-play points.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Reaches 400-point mark in style

    Forsberg scored four goals in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    It was a stellar game for Forsberg, who notched his eighth career hat trick. He then became the third player in Predators history with a four-goal game when he scored on a power play late in the second period. That tally also gave him 400 points in his 510-game career. The skilled Swede is up to 10 tallies, five assists, 31 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 13 contests this year. If he was flying under the radar in your fantasy league, he's not anymore.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Nabs helper Saturday

    Forsberg earned an assist and levied two hits in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Forsberg drew the secondary helper on Matt Duchene's third-period tally. With two goals and two assists in three games since returning from an upper-body injury, it's safe to say Forsberg is back and at full health. The star winger will continue to log top-six minutes, and that gives him a safe enough floor to deploy regularly in fantasy. He's at 11 points, 27 shots on net, 13 hits and a minus-2 rating in 12 contests overall.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Scores twice in return

    Forsberg (upper body) notched a pair of goals on three shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Vegas.

    Forsberg showed no ill effects from his nine-game absence, accounting for all of the Nashville offense with a pair of third-period tallies. He took a superb Matt Duchene stretch pass early in the frame and beat Robin Lehner on a breakaway, then he drilled a one-timer from the top of the left circle just under nine minutes later. The 27-year-old Forsberg has four goals and seven points in nine games this season.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Activated off IR

    Forsberg (upper body) has been removed from injured reserve ahead of Wednesday's clash with Vegas, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    While technically a game-time call, Forsberg's activation off injured reserve is a clear indication he'll make his return to the lineup Wednesday. The 27-year-old winger is poised to take on a second-line role with Ryan Johansen and Matt Duchene while also linking up with the No. 1 power-play unit. As such, Forsberg should offer top-half fantasy value, especially considering he racked ups seven points in nine games prior to his injury absence.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Game-time call

    Forsberg (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with Vegas, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Forsberg's status versus the Golden Knights almost certainly won't be determined until the Predators take the ice for pregame warmups, so fantasy managers should plan accordingly. If he's able to go, Forsberg will likely draw into a top-six role as well as a spot on one of Nashville's power-play units against Vegas.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Nearing return to ice

    Forsberg (upper body) could be an option soon but won't play against Anaheim on Monday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Forsberg was rolling with three goals in four games prior to getting hurt but will now be out of action for his ninth straight game. As soon as the Swede is cleared to play, he'll slide back into his first-line role and rejoin the top power-play unit, making him a top-half fantasy target.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Moved to IR

    Forsberg (upper body) remains week-to-week and was moved to injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    The news effectively rules Forsberg out for the team's three games this week against Dallas (Wednesday), St. Louis (Thursday) and Arizona (Saturday). He's already missed three games with the injury suffered Nov. 2 at Calgary.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Designated week-to-week

    Forsberg (upper body) is considered week-to-week.

    Forsberg was hurt Tuesday versus the Flames, and the week-to-week timeline suggests it's not just a minor injury. Rocco Grimaldi will likely enter the lineup Wednesday versus the Oilers. Forsberg could be placed on injured reserve to free up a roster spot eventually.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: No update on status

    Forsberg (undisclosed) was injured in the third period of Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Flames, and head coach John Hynes had no update on his status after the game, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Forsberg scored a goal on two shots during the contest. He was seen bleeding from his face in the third period prior to heading to the locker room, but it's unclear if that's what kept him off the ice. Expect an update on the winger's status ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Oilers.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Fires game-winning goal

    Forsberg scored a goal on two shots in a 3-1 win over San Jose on Tuesday.

    Forsberg beat James Reimer with a snap shot to the glove side with 7:29 left in the second period, giving the Predators a 2-0 edge. The goal, Forsberg's third of the year, proved to be the game-winner. After going through a brief three-game point skid, Forsberg has come back with three points over his last two tilts.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Multi-point effort in victory

    Forsberg provided a goal and an assist with three shots in a 5-2 win over the Wild on Sunday.

    Forsberg assisted on Ryan Johansen's power-play tally that gave Nashville a 2-0 lead early in the first period, then he added a goal of his own at 13:15 of the second to make it 4-1, deflecting a Roman Josi point shot. Forsberg had been held off the scoresheet in his previous three games, but he now has two goals and four assists through five contests overall.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Provides late goal

    Forsberg notched a goal on three shots with two hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Carolina.

    Forsberg brought the Predators to within a goal in the final minute of the third period, stuffing home a loose puck in the blue paint. He's collected three points through his first two games, picking up a goal and two assists.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Sets up pair in loss

    Forsberg registered two assists and two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Kraken.

    Forsberg's first assist was on a Roman Josi power-play goal, and he also helped out on Mikael Granlund's late tally in the third. An injury-riddled 2020-21 limited Forsberg to 32 points in 39 contests with a 9.3 shooting percentage, his lowest since a 13-game audition in 2013-14. The 27-year-old is a potential bounce-back candidate who has shown 60-point talent in the past -- and the Predators' offense is likely counting on him leading by example.
