Forsberg signed a one-year contract with the Oilers on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Forsberg has been solid in the AHL over the last two seasons with a .913 save percentage, but he's been unable to maintain a consistent role at the top level. With the Oilers bringing back Mike Smith to back up Mikko Koskinen, Forsberg will spend most of the season in the minors.

With Corey Crawford (upper body) sidelined for much of the season, Forsberg was thrust into a starting role with the Blackhawks in 2017-18, compiling a 10-16-4 record along with an ugly 2.97 GAA and .908 save percentage through 35 appearances. This offseason, the team brought in Cam Ward on a one-year, $3 million contract to back up Crawford in 2018-19, which means Forsberg will undoubtedly be the odd-man out once the regular season gets underway. The 2011 seventh-round pick is destined to spend much of the upcoming campaign in the minors, so he can safely be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Forsberg spent almost the entire season with AHL Cleveland last year, posting excellent numbers for the Monsters but not getting a real crack at the NHL as Sergei Bobrovsky absorbed a huge workload while earning his second Vezina Trophy. Traded to the Blackhawks in the offseason as part of the Artemi Panarin deal, the 24-year-old is expected to back up Corey Crawford in Chicago, although the team also signed Jean-Francois Berube to compete for the job. Assuming Forsberg secures the spot, though, his strong minor-league track record suggests he'll be a useful option on nights when Crawford is getting a rest.
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.
