  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Notches assist in win

    Forsling produced an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals.

    Forsling has gotten on the scoresheet in each of the last two games. He set up an Evan Rodrigues tally in the third period Wednesday. Playing heavy defensive minutes has taken a toll on Forsling's offense -- he's at three points, 26 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating through 12 appearances.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Provides second goal of 2023-24

    Forsling netted a goal in a 5-4 overtime win over Columbus on Monday.

    Forsling snapped a three-game scoring drought to provide his second goal and point in 11 outings this year. His marker came early in the first period to put Florida ahead 2-0. Forsling had 13 goals and 41 points in 82 contests last season and went into Monday's action averaging 24:28 of ice time per game, so he should start to pick up the offensive pace as the campaign progresses.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Pots PP tally Saturday

    Forsling scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kraken.

    The blueliner sparked Florida's rally from a 2-0 deficit midway through the second period when he blasted a slapshot through some traffic past Joey Daccord. It was Forsling's first goal, and first point, of the season, but the 27-year-old has maintained a presence on the Panthers' power play despite his early struggles. With Aaron Ekblad (shoulder) and Brandon Montour (shoulder) not expected back until late November, Forsling still has some time to take advantage of that assignment.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Nabs assist in loss

    Forsling picked up an assist and dished out two hits in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5.

    Forsling registered three assists over the last six games of the Panthers' playoff run. The 27-year-old defenseman finished the postseason with just eight points, a plus-7 rating, 36 shots on net, 32 blocked shots and 19 hits over 21 contests. He's entering the final year of his contract at a $2.67 million cap hit, and after a career-high 41 points in 82 contests in 2022-23, he'll likely be set for a raise if he signs an extension with Florida.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Registers assist in Game 2

    Forsling tallied one assist against the Bruins in Wednesday's Game 2 win.

    Forsling remains stuck in a five-game goal drought despite having recorded 14 shots over that stretch. During the regular season, the blueliner produced at a .5 point-per-game rate and should continue to do so in the postseason, making him a decent mid-range fantasy option.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Two points against Sens

    Forsling collected an even-strength goal and a short-handed assist in Thursday's 7-2 win over Ottawa.

Forsling is having a nice close to the season, picking up five goals and eight points over the last 12 games, and through 79 games in 2022-23 he's compiled a career-high 13 goals and 41 points.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Contributes game-winning goal

    Forsling found the back of the net in Florida's 5-2 win over Detroit on Monday.

    Forsling set career highs in 2021-22 with 10 goals and 37 points in 71 contests, and he's in a strong position to surpass them this season with 10 markers and 35 points through 70 appearances. The 26-year-old endured a seven-game scoring drought from Feb. 24-March 11, but he's bounced back with two goals in his last three outings. Forsling's latest marker came midway through the second period, and it proved to be the game-winner, his third such tally of the season.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Supplies helper in win

    Forsling notched an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 2-1 shootout win over the Wild.

    Forsling entered Monday with no points over his last seven games, by far his worst drought of the season. The defenseman snapped the slump by setting up an Eetu Luostarinen tally in the second period. Forsling's played well in all zones this season, racking up seven goals, 24 helpers, 139 shots on net, 76 blocked shots and a plus-16 rating through 56 appearances while filling a top-four role.

  • Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Makes only shot count

    Forsling scored on his only shot in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Wild.

    Forsling caught a flying puck and blasted it home for his seventh goal of the season. The burgeoning defenseman is at the 30-point mark for the second straight year, and the Panthers have expanded his role by granting him 1:34 of average ice time on the man advantage. Fantasy managers should take note of this trend, especially with Florida winning seven of its past 10 games.
