RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Anton Forsberg.
The 21-year-old goaltender wasn't considered a top prospect heading into last season, but after an impressive performance in Sweden and a dynamic four-game run with Springfield in the AHL, Forsberg has opened some eyes. He'll be the top dog in Springfield to begin the season, but will need to hold off Oscar Dansk to keep his spot on the depth chart.
Goaltending prospect Forsberg put together a strong season in the Swedish second division, but is still a long way from the NHL.
Forsberg, a Swedish goalie prospect, has nice size but many rough edges to smooth out before he'll be ready for North American hockey. He recorded an .897 save percentage and a 3.15 goals-against average in 15 games for Modo of the Swedish Elite League last year.
