Nashville Predators

The Predators have activated Filip Forsberg (hand) from IR.

Forsberg was considered questionable heading into tonight’s game in Toronto but activated from IR suggests that he will return to the lineup tonight. Forsberg has missed the last 18 games but is expected to return to the top-line with Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson. Forsberg had 14 goals and eight assists (22 points) in 26 games before getting hurt.

Forsberg (hand) is “really close” and could play on Monday.

Forsberg has missed the last 18 games with a hand injury and could be in the lineup in Toronto. Forsberg was on the ice for Monday’s morning skate but roared on the fourth line so it remains to be seen if he will play tonight. Forsberg told reporters that he is “feeling good” but it’s up to the coaches.

The Predators have signed Filip Forsberg to a six-year deal worth $36 million ($6.0M AAV).

Forsberg was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st, but is now signed through the 2021-22 season. Forsberg just wrapped up his second full NHL season with the Predators, where he recorded his first 30-goal season (33) with 31 assists to give him 64 points in 82 games. He has not missed a game in the last two years, finishing with nearly identical 63 and 64-point campaigns.

Forsberg scored his first goal of the season last night and has now recorded at least one point in the first three games of the season. He has one goal and three assists so far and should only continue to produce on the Predators top line with Ribeiro and Neal, who could use a jump-start (1G between the two of them). Forsberg is only owned in 19% of Yahoo! leagues and is definitely worth taking a look at in 12-team leagues.
