May 1, 2021
Forsling recorded two assists, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blackhawks.
ANALYSIS
Forsling helped out on tallies by Anthony Duclair and Aleksander Barkov in the contest. The 24-year-old Forsling is up to a career-high 14 points, 86 shots on goal, 40 blocked shots and a plus-14 rating through 40 games. The Swede has taken on top-pairing duties with Aaron Ekblad (leg) done for the season. While Forsling isn't the same caliber of player on offense, he's been fairly solid for the Panthers this season.

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.
