Senators' Anton Forsberg: Pulled from blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg gave up four goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Flames.

Forsberg played 30:05 in the contest before he was relieved by Filip Gustavsson. The lopsided loss belongs to Forsberg, who is now 3-4-1 in eight appearances for the Senators. He's added a 3.21 GAA and a .909 save percentage. It's unclear which of Forsberg, Gustavsson or Marcus Hogberg will start the Senators' season finale Wednesday versus the Maple Leafs.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg will get the starting nod for Sunday's road tilt with the Flames, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

Forsberg made his first appearance in nearly a month Wednesday and allowed just one goal on 31 shots in a 5-1 win over Montreal. The 28-year-old owns a 2.87 GAA and a .917 save percentage in seven games with the Senators this season. Sunday will be his first meeting with a Flames team that's averaging 2.57 goals per game this season, the fifth-fewest in the league.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Stellar in Wednesday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg kicked out 30 of 31 shots in a 5-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday.

Back in the lineup for the first time since April 12 and armed with a one-year contract extension, Forsberg showed no signs of rust from his three-week absence due to a lower-body injury. Joel Edmundson's goal from point blank in the final minute of the first period was the lone blemish of Forsberg's box score, as the 28-year-old netminder improved to 3-3-1 with a 2.87 GAA and .917 in seven appearances with the Senators.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Patrolling crease Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) will start between the pipes for Wednesday's home contest against Toronto, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Forsberg is set to enjoy a nice Wednesday, as he'll return to the lineup coming off injury and signing a new one-year contract extension. The 28-year-old has just six appearances this season, as he's gone 2-3-1 along with a 3.18 GAA and .910 save percentage over that span. Forsberg will draw a tough matchup against a Maple Leafs offense that sits fifth in the league in goals per game this season (3.33).

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Signs one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) signed a one-year, $900,000 contract extension with the Senators on Wednesday.

Forsberg has been decent in limited action with Ottawa this season, going 2-3-1 while posting a 3.18 GAA and a .910 save percentage in six appearances. The 28-year-old backstop will likely continue to serve as an injury-replacement option for the Senators in 2021-22.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Still out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) remains unavailable Monday against the Jets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Marcus Hogberg and Filip Gustavsson remain Ottawa's top two healthy goaltenders, as both Forsberg and Matt Murray have been shelved by lower-body injuries. Forsberg's next chance to return to action will come Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Doesn't make trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite a previous report that suggested otherwise, Forsberg (lower body) won't be between the pipes for Saturday's game versus Montreal, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Forsberg didn't make the trip to Montreal for Saturday's contest, but coach D.J. Smith is hopeful the 28-year-old netminder will be able to return to practice Sunday. Forsberg has been sidelined since April 12 with a lower-body injury.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Taking on Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) will patrol the crease for Saturday's contest in Montreal, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Forsberg will return from a seven-game absence Saturday after suffering a lower-body injury. The 28-year-old is 2-3-1 with a .910 save percentage and 3.18 GAA through six appearances with the Senators this season. He'll face a Montreal squad that was near the bottom of the league with just 2.24 goals per game during April.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) skated Tuesday, but he won't be available for Wednesday's game versus Vancouver, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Although Forsberg won't dress against the Canucks, the fact that he skated Tuesday suggests he could be ready to return as soon as Saturday against Montreal. He's gone 2-3-1 while posting a 3.18 GAA and a .910 save percentage in six top-level appearances this season.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) won't play Monday against the Canucks, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Both Forsberg and Matt Murray (lower body) will be sidelined for this one, though Garrioch notes Murray's absence is expected to linger a bit longer. Marcus Hogberg is the top healthy goalie left in Ottawa, though Forsberg would likely take over as the No. 1 option if he can return before Murray does. Forsberg's next chance to play will come Wednesday against Vancouver.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Not starting after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg (lower body) did not take the ice for warmups and will not start Saturday's game versus the Canucks.

Forsberg apparently suffered the injury just before warmups after he was expected to start Saturday. Instead, Matt Murray will be between the pipes with Marcus Hogberg backing up.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Pegged for Saturday's tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg will start Saturday's road game against the Canucks, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Forsberg has recorded a .910 save percentage and a 2-3-1 record this season. This will be his first start since April 12. The Canucks have shown some fight since returning from their COVID-19 layoff. However, fellow Senators netminder Matt Murray posted a 31-save shutout against the Canucks on Thursday.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Earns first home win with new squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg kicked out 24 of 26 shots in a 4-2 win over the Jets on Monday.

Forsberg found himself in a 2-0 hole before the game was nine minutes old, but the Senators came roaring back with four unanswered goals to snap the netminder's three-game losing skid. The 28-year-old Forsberg improved to 2-3-1 since joining Ottawa in late March. He's logged a 3.18 GAA and respectable .910 save percentage in that time.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per TSN 1200 Ottawa, Forsberg was the first goalie off during morning skate, indicating that he'll start in Monday's home game versus the Jets.

Forsberg is set for a second straight start despite losing his last two games. The 28-year-old has been solid this season with a .908 save percentage, though his 1-3-1 record is less appealing for fantasy purposes. The Jets enter Monday's matchup with a three-game win streak, and they scored at least four goals in each contest.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Allows five in messy match
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg made 32 saves in a 6-5 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. He allowed five goals.

It was a fast-paced, messy game and Forsberg was terrorized by Auston Matthews (three goals, one assist) and line mate Mitch Marner (one goals, three assists). Forsberg suffered through several goal mouth scrambles that his teammates just couldn't stop. This was his third-straight loss and he's allowed 11 goals in those games. Forsberg is obviously a tough fantasy activation.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets starting nod Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg will patrol the crease for Saturday's road contest against the Maple Leafs, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

Forsberg will start for the fifth time in the last seven games. During that span, he owns a 2.99 GAA and .918 save percentage. The 28-year-old made his season debut against Toronto on March 25, coughing up three goals on 41 shots in an overtime loss.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Falls to Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg stopped 20 of 22 shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Oilers.

Forsberg was locked in a 1-1 tie until Devin Shore redirected a point shot with just over seven minutes left in regulation to give the Oilers the lead. After being the victim of waiver churn for much of the 2020-21 season, Forsberg has started four games since being claimed by Ottawa in late March and has responded with a .918 save percentage. The Senators have been desperate all season for stable goaltending, and right now, Forsberg is providing it.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Between pipes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg will tend the home twine in Thursday's game versus the Oilers.

Forsberg is making his fourth start in six games. The 28-year-old has faced at least 38 shots in each of his starts this season, but he has still mustered up an impressive .920 save percentage. The Oilers have alternated wins and losses over their last six outings, averaging 2.5 goals in that stretch.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Overwhelmed by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg turned aside 42 shots in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.

Winnipeg built up a 4-1 lead by the end of the second period, but Forsberg locked things down in the third and gave Ottawa a chance to rally. It's the first regulation loss in three starts for the 28-year-old, and Forsberg's .928 save percentage isn't reflected in his 3.28 GAA.

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Ticketed for second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsberg will defend the road goal in Monday's game versus the Jets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Forsberg has put up a .924 save percentage and a 1-0-1 record as a member of the Senators, who will ride the hot hand and provide Forsberg with his third start in four games. The Jets are coming off back-to-back losses to the Maple Leafs in which they totaled just two goals.
