Forsberg Assigned To Milwaukee

On the Admirals Center Ice Radio Show on Sportsradio 1250 WSSP, Paul Fenton told Aaron and Wojo on Monday that there may be “a couple of surprises sprinkled in” when answering a question about the playoff roster.

One of those surprises was sent down to Milwaukee today.

Along with Austin Watson, it was announced that Filip Forsberg has been assigned to the Admirals.  Joonas Rask was also called up to the Predators.

The jewel of the trade that sent Martin Erat and Michael Latta to Washington has played in four games with the Predators so far.  If he had played in six games, then Nashville would activate the first year of his entry level contract, which wasn’t a very likely prospect.

So we’re expecting to see him on the ice tomorrow night in Game 1 against the Texas Stars.  And that will be a treat.  Hopefully there won’t be any airport delays or things like that.

So Roundtable….who would you like Forsberg’s linemates to be if he makes it tomorrow night?

  1. I like how the Admirals’ official press release has the headline “Watson Reassigned to Milwaukee” and only mentions Forsberg in one sentence. Assuming he’s being sent down to play, he is the bigger story than Watson (no offense to Watson). It’s not every day you get a 1st round, 11th overall draft pick sent down to your AHL franchise!

    I wasn’t paying too close attention to Forsberg in Nashville. He’s listed as a center. Is that what he played with the Preds? If he’s playing center, I’d say go with a line of Watson-Forsberg-Puustinen. If he’s playing right wing (since he shoots right), I’d say Watson-Hamil-Forsberg. Hamil is more of a setup, Cal O’Reilly type guy so he should be able to set up Forsberg real well :)
