2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Waived for reassignment

September 30, 2019
Forsling was waived by the Hurricanes for the purpose of reassignment Monday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Forsling was traded to the Hurricanes from Chicago in June, and he'll start the season with AHL Charlotte if he clears waivers. He was a long shot to make the NHL roster since the Canes acquired left-handed defensemen Joel Edmundson via trade and Jake Gardiner (undisclosed) via free agency.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2014
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.
