Chicago Blackhawks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Forsling was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
Brent Seabrook is now healthy and coach Jeremy Colliton has clearly enjoyed what Slater Koekkoek has brought to the Blackhawks' lineup, so Forsling will likely continue to split time with Carl Dahlstrom as Chicago's seventh defenseman down the stretch.
