by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg scored a goal on two shots, doled out two hits and added two PIM in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 1.

Forsberg opened the scoring at 12:14 of the first period, but Teuvo Teravainen tied it for the Hurricanes just 1:27 later. The 26-year-old Forsberg lost 17 games to injury in the regular season, but he was productive with 12 tallies and 20 helpers in 39 contests. The Swede will be looked to for offense during the playoffs.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Not expected back this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Poile doesn't expected Forsberg (upper body) to return this week, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Forsberg will miss Nashville's next two games at a minimum, but it sounds like the Predators are still hopeful he'll be able to get a few games in prior to the playoffs.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg has already been sidelined for nearly two weeks with an upper-body injury, so he'll be eligible to return whenever he's deemed fit to play despite landing on IR on Friday. The 26-year-old winger has racked up 11 goals and 29 points in 34 games this season.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Labeled week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (upper body) is considered week-to-week, the team announced Wednesday.

Forberg has already missed three games due to his upper-body issue and now is slated to be sidelined for at least two more. Prior to getting hurt, Forsberg managed just one goal in his last 11 appearances while also registering six assists, including four with the man advantage. At this point, fantasy players should expect Forsberg to end up on injured reserve sooner rather than later.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Best production of his career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg set up both Nashville goals in a 6-2 loss to Florida on Saturday.

The Preds may be struggling this season, but Forsberg isn't. The guy is scoring at a point-per-game pace and has five points (one goal, four assists) in his last two games. He's signed for one more season, but he can re-sign a new deal in the summer. Forsberg's putting up the kind of season that should net him more than his current $6 million cap hit, but the Preds may not be able to afford him, and given their current situation, he could be on the move.

Predators' Filip Forsberg: Generates power-play apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg delivered a power-play assist en route to a 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets on Sunday.

One of four alternate captains for the Preds, Forsberg averaged a point per game in February, culminating in five goals and eight assists through 13 games. Nashville plays four times this week, so fantasy managers will have plenty of opportunities to capitalize on Forsberg's services in the short term.

Both of Forsberg's points Tuesday came on the power play. He tallied at 4:36 of the third period and later set up Eeli Tolvanen for the insurance marker. Forsberg had a goal overturned for goalie interference in the second period, but the Swede simply wouldn't be denied. The 26-year-old is up to nine goals, 17 points, 70 shots on net, 22 hits and six power-play points through 18 appearances this season.
