2021 Fantasy Outlook
Forsling never found his footing over the course of three seasons with the Blackhawks, but a move to Florida and a permanent role on one of the NHL's best teams has rejuvenated him. Forsling played in every game for the Panthers from March 4 onward, including all of the club's postseason contests. His production was minimal, but Forsling did set career highs in goals (five), assists (12), points (17), plus-minus rating (plus-17), shots on goal (94) and average time on ice (19:57). Florida rewarded Forsling with a three-year, $8 million contract this past summer, which should ensure he'll be a regular for the club for years to come, albeit in a role that isn't exactly conducive to fantasy value.

Forsling (undisclosed) was labeled week-to-week after getting hurt Saturday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.
ANALYSIS
Forsling was already placed on injured reserve, so his recovery timeline shouldn't come as a huge surprise. In 21 games this year, the Swedish blueliner was red hot with 12 points in 21 games and needs just five more points to match his career high set last year. In the meantime, Kevin Connauton should jump back into the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch for the Panthers' last three games.

FanDuel NHL: Tuesday Targets

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2014
Forsling was unable to carve out a regular role with the Blackhawks during his three seasons with the organization, totaling eight goals and 27 points in 122 appearances. He'll get a fresh start in Carolina in 2019-20, but will likely once again be splitting time between the AHL and NHL, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radar.
Forsling took a big step forward in his development last season, setting career highs in goals (three), points (13), shots on goal (82) and average ice time (19:09) in 41 appearances with the Blackhawks. The Swedish blueliner was fully expected to compete for a spot on the Opening Night roster during training camp, but that will no longer be a possibility, as he was surprisingly forced to undergo wrist surgery in late July which is expected to keep him sidelined until mid-November. Fantasy owners looking for defensive help as the season progresses should keep an eye on Forsling's recovery, but he won't be worth a draft pick in most formats.
Forsling was acquired by the Blackhawks from the Canucks on Jan. 29, 2015. He was a fifth-round selection (126th overall) by Vancouver in the 2014 NHL Draft. He played the 2014-15 season in the Swedish Hockey League.
