Predators' Filip Forsberg: Tallies first goal of series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3.

He was held off the scoresheet in the first two games in Nashville, but found his scoring touch in Dallas. Forsberg's had nine shots and five hits in three games. He's coming off of a 50-point season, his fifth consecutive year of hitting that mark. If he can produce like a first-line winger going forward, the Predators could make a deep run.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Fifth straight 50-point campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg generated a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks.

The Predators had a two-goal deficit heading into the second period. Forsberg took over and dished out an assist to Dante Fabbro and scored a goal of his own to tie the game heading into the third frame. This gave Forsberg 50 points through 64 games, marking the fifth straight season he hit the 50-point mark. Forsberg and the Predators will face off against the Stars in the first round of playoffs.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Dents twine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg lit the lamp in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jackets.

Forsberg scooped up the rebound of P.K. Subban's shot and sent it home to cut the Blue Jackets' lead to one. This was good for Forsberg's 27th goal of the season, topping last campaign's total. Although he's improved in scoring, his helping hand has heavily regressed to just 20 assists after registering 38 apples last campaign.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Fifth season of 25-plus goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg scored his 25th goal of the season and added a helper in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

Forsberg is up to 45 points in 55 games, in a season that's seen him deal with a couple of injuries. The left wing added three shots and three blocked shots in the contest. Forsberg's season numbers aren't near the 60 points we've come to expect from him, but with 0.82 points per game, he's been productive when healthy.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Not slowed by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (upper body) scored twice on the power play in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

With his team down three goals but up two men, Forsberg tallied, and then ended the one-man advantage a minute later with his second marker of the night, but he couldn't draw the Predators even from there. Forsberg's up to 24 goals and 43 points in 53 games this season, having lost 18 games to injuries. It's unlikely the winger reaches the 60-point threshold by season's end, but 50 to 55 points is a reasonable expectation.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (upper body) will be in the lineup against the Ducks on Tuesday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Forsberg returns following just a one-game stint in the press box due to his upper-body issue. The winger will jump right back into his spot on the top line with Ryan Johansen and should be a factor on the power play, where he is averaging 3:18 of ice time and has recorded eight of his 41 points. The Swede will likely miss out on notching a fourth 60-plus point campaign, but could still push for the 50 mark.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Out versus Hurricanes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (upper body) will miss Saturday's home game against Carolina, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Forsberg practiced Saturday after missing the previous two skates for maintenance and was expected to play against Carolina. Ultimately, the team's medical staff decided to play it safe, resulting in him being held out of Saturday's lineup. Forsberg, who owns 22 goals and 41 points in 52 games, will hope to return Thursday in LA.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Looking to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (undisclosed) said he plans to play Saturday against the Hurricanes, Paul Skrbina of the Tennessean reports.

Nashville's top-line left winger missed two consecutive days of practice to initially raise doubts about his availability for the upcoming home clash, but this certainly doesn't sound like an issue that will prevent him from suiting up. The Predators are just two points behind the Jets for the Central Division lead, and the team figures to continue relying heavily on Forsberg -- who has 22 goals and 19 assists -- to reign supreme within that group.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Absent from practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg missed practice for the second straight day Friday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Forsberg's absence from practice Thursday was chalked up as a maintenance day by the team, but the fact he still isn't on the ice with his teammates will no doubt raise red flags for fans and fantasy owners alike. Until the team provides more clarity on the situation, the winger should probably be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup with Carolina.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Buries equalizer against Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg potted his 22nd tally of the year in a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild on Sunday.

Forsberg took six shots and added a pair of hits in the game. The star winger now has 41 points from 51 games this season, which was interrupted by a hand injury in December.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Increasingly physical play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg registered an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

In his last 12 games, Forsberg has accumulated two goals and seven points, but also has 28 hits, accounting for over a third of his 75 hits this season. Forsberg is at 40 points in 50 games, which makes it seem like his chances at a fourth 60-point season are slim. Blame his hand injury at the start of December for the lower-than-expected output.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Finally finds twine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg snapped a seven-game goal drought Tuesday, scoring his 19th of the year in a 5-2 win over Arizona.

The Swede led all players with six shots on goal and also dished out three hits in the win. Forsberg now has four points in three games since the All-Star break, and - despite being limited to 38 games due to injury - currently sits fourth in team scoring (33 points) and second in goals (19).

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Flashes passing skills in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg picked up three assists in Friday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

He notched the primary helper on all three goals. Forsberg now has four goals and 10 points in his last nine games, showing no ill effects from the hand injury that cost him all of December and the first few games in January.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Dishes out helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg recorded an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Tuesday's win over the Avalanche.

Since returning from a hand injury, Forsberg has posted four goals, three assists and 28 shots on goal. He averaged less than a hit per game before the injury, but he has been more physical since with 2.25 per outing. Forsberg's well-rounded play keeps him on both special-teams units as well as the Predators' top line.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Tickles twine twice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg notched a pair of goals -- one of them shorthanded -- in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

Forsberg now has four points in four games since returning from a month-long, 17-game absence due to a hand injury earlier this month. The 24-year-old Swede missed a similar amount of time last season, playing in just 67 games, but he was still able to crack the 60-point plateau (26 goals, 38 assists), so don't be surprised if he pulls off a similar feat this season. Forsberg should be in your fantasy lineups as long as he's healthy.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Fires home OT winner against Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime, during Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Blackhawks.

His first tally came on the power play. Forsberg missed five weeks with a broken hand, but he was his usual dangerous self in only his second game back in the lineup. The 24-year-old now has 16 goals and 24 points through 28 contests as he gears up for a big second half.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Settling back in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg managed a blocked shot, two hits and three shots on goal over 13:54 of ice time in his return from a hand injury Monday. The visiting Predators shut out the Maple Leafs, 4-0.

It appears that Forsberg is getting eased back into the fold after missing 17 consecutive games. Amazingly, despite the prolonged absence, he is tied with Craig Smith for the scoring lead among Predators at 14 goals apiece -- reaching that mark in 17 fewer games than Smith. Forsberg has produced 100 points (49 goals, 51 assists) over 127 career games against Central Divison opponents, which is something to keep in mind as he faces the Blackhawks on Wednesday.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: All systems go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (hand) has been activated from injured reserve ahead of Monday's road game in Toronto, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Forsberg's removal from IR all but ensures that he'll be in the lineup when the Preds take on the Maple Leafs in a battle of league powerhouses. The Swedish forward will slot back into a top-six role and should also factor into Nashville's power-play plans now that he's back in the lineup. In 26 games, the 24-year-old has 14 goals and 22 points. Ladies and gentlemen, the time has finally come to get Forsberg back in your fantasy lineups.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (hand) will be a game-time decision versus Toronto on Monday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Forsberg has been out of the lineup since Nov. 29, a stretch of 17 games that could come to an end Monday. If the winger does play, he will almost certainly jump up to the top line alongside Ryan Johansen. In order to suit up, the Swede will need to be activated off injured reserve.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (hand) is not in the lineup for Saturday's road contest in Montreal, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Forsberg will miss his 17th consecutive contest as he continues his recovery from a hand injury. Reportedly very close to a return, odds are Forsberg will be cleared ahead of Monday's game in Toronto, but official confirmation of that should come from the team in the next day or so.
