RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Forsberg was a revelation for the Predators in his first full NHL season, parlaying a top-line role into a team-leading 26 goals and 63 points and earning an invite to the All-Star Game. The 6-foot-1 forward continued his success in the playoffs, scoring four goals in six games against the eventual Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks. Acquired from the Capitals in April 2013 in what now looks like an absolute heist for Nashville, Forsberg has the look of a budding superstar, and could soon be a top fantasy pick for many years to come. Skating on the top power-play unit with Shea Weber and Roman Josi, there doesn't seem many potential obstacles that woud result in Forsberg taking a step backwards in his sophomore campaign. The youngster has a lethal shot and he uses it often, making another 25-goal season a reasonable expectation.

2014-15

After getting his first taste of NHL action for the Preds down the stretch the previous year, the 19-year old Forsberg made the team out of training camp last year, playing in 12 of the Preds’ first 19 games. However, he soon ran into injury trouble and wound up spending most of the rest of the season in the minors. Since then, given the significant upgrades the Preds made at forward this offseason, Forsberg could very well continue to ply his trade in the AHL until the team feels he has taken the next step towards becoming an everyday contributor at the NHL level. Make no mistake, Forsberg projects as a top-six player for the Preds someday, but his time has not yet come.

2013-14

Most observers thought the Preds got the better part of the deal when they acquired Forsberg from Washington for Martin Erat and Michael Latta at the trade deadline last season. The 19-year-old Forsberg was the eleventh overall pick in the 2012 draft and is expected to be a top-six forward once he arrives. Forsberg got his first taste of NHL action as the season wound down last year, playing in five of the Preds' final six games and posting a single point in the process. But prior to that, he did score 33 points in 38 games with Leksands IF in Sweden. The Preds are hoping he can one day lineup on their top line, but for now he will probably open the upcoming season at AHL Milwaukee.

2012-13

The Caps made this 18-year old the No. 11 overall pick in this June's draft. A skilled, budding talent, Forsberg honed his craft in the Swedish First Division with Leskands. He'll likely play in Sweden again this season or with AHL Hershey should he sign. Regardless, he'll get a long look in training camp and the Caps will be eagerly awaiting the day he can line up alongside Nicklas Backstrom.
