  • Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Pots opening goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/18) Forsbacka-Karlsson scored the game's opening goal on Saturday as the Bruins topped the Maple Leafs 6-3.

    After being a healthy scratch to begin December, Forsbacka-Karlsson has drawn back into the lineup as the third line center. The goal was his third of the season through 11 games played.

    Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Back in lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Forsbacka-Karlsson is slated to center the Bruins' fourth line Thursday against the Lightning.

    The budding two-way pivot will be working with hard-shooting Ryan Donato and the rugged Noel Acciari, a trio that could bring some welcome energy to the Bruins' forward corps on the heels of Tuesday's flat effort in a 5-0 loss to the Panthers.

    Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Quickly called back up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/3/18) Forsbacka-Karlsson was recalled from AHL Providence n Monday.

    Well that was a brief return to the AHL for Forsbacka-Karlsson. The 21-year-old was sent down Sunday, and now he's already back up. Given that the Bruins only had 12 healthy forwards without him, and given that they have a game Tuesday against the Panthers, this recall wasn't surprising. However, the Swede has been a healthy scratch for Boston's last two games, so he may not get in the lineup.

    Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Shifts back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/18) The Bruins reassigned Forsbacka-Karlsson to AHL Providence on Sunday, Mark Divver of The Providence Journal reports.

    Forsbacka-Karlsson was a healthy scratch for the last two games, but moving him to minors leaves just 12 healthy forwards on the Bruins' roster. Therefore, the 22-year-old may be recalled before Tuesday's game versus the Panthers, especially seeing how he centered the team's top line at one point during his stint with the big club.

    Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Opportunity knocks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/18) Forsbacka-Karlsson is slated to center Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak when the Bruins take on the Penguins on Friday, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.

    Forsbacka-Karlsson had been seeing most of his ice time as the B's third-line center, but he'll get a shot to work on the top line Friday. The 22-year-old earned the promotion on the heels of scoring in back-to-back games. It's an assignment that gives Forsbacka-Karlsson appeal in daily formats Friday and if the move sticks, it could lead to a nice window of opportunity for the youngster, given that Boston's top pivot Patrice Bergeron (rib, sternoclavicular) is out for at least a few more weeks.
