Preds' Forsberg Pots Goal In Loss To Isles

News: Filip Forsberg netted his 20th goal of the season in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Filip Forsberg leads all NHL rookies with 51 points in 58 games, and barring a late-season collapse, should be considered the favorite for the Calder trophy at the end of the year. Either way, Forsberg has been instrumental in the Predators' rise to the top of the NHL standings this season. From a fantasy perspective, he should be in your lineup every time he takes to the ice - but of course you already knew that.

Preds' Forsberg Nets Two More Points

News: Filip Forsberg had a goal and an assist -- both on the man advantage -- in Thursday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: After one game off the scoresheet, he got right back on the horse in a big way. Filip Forsberg hasn't had a three-game scoreless stretch since November. He's been that consistently excellent.

Preds' Forsberg Pots Goal In Win

News: Filip Forsberg tallied a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

Preds' Forsberg: Assist Streak Hits Four Games

News: Filip Forsberg gathered an assist in Saturday's win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Filip Forsberg has collected assists in a season-high four consecutive games. The rookie has curiously seen his shot attempts dip to less than two per game during that time, but so long as he's staying productive as a scorer in some capacity, fantasy owners won't complain.

Preds' Forsberg: Assists In Three Of Last Four

News: Filip Forsberg was credited with an assist in Sunday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: The rookie has a helper in three of his last four games, enabling him to stay productive for fantasy owners while not finding the net on any of his 14 shots during that span. The 20-year-old continues to chug along at a point-per-game scoring pace, and given his impressive pedigree, he shouldn't necessarily be viewed as a sell-high candidate.

Preds' Forsberg Dominates Vs. Flyers

News: Filip Forsberg scored a power-play goal, added an assist, and recorded seven shots on goal in Saturday's win over the Flyers.

Preds' Forsberg Notches Two Helpers

News: Filip Forsberg picked up a power-play assist and an even-strength helper in Thursday's 5-1 rout of the Coyotes.

Analysis: Just another good outing for Filip Forsberg, who's found his scoring a little spottier lately -- he's gone without a point in six of the last nine games -- but is still on a point-per-game pace and continues to put up quality plus-minus all the time. He's now plus-23 on the year, three ticks ahead of Calgary's T.J. Brodie.

Preds' Forsberg Nets Winner In Shootout

News: Filip Forsberg scored the lone goal in a shootout in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Panthers.

He looks like he'll be a fixture there both now and for several years to come.
