Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg took part in his team practice today, and as it was reported on Twitter by many hockey insiders, he was wearing a regular jersey. Forsberg did practice with the Preds before the All-Star break, but he was wearing a non-contact jersey. He skated on a line with Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson.
There's also a chance that Forsberg could play tomorrow against the Chicago Blackhawks, in his team first game since the All-Star break.
The 23 year-old forward missed the last ten games with an upper-body injury. Prior to his injury, Forsberg had 15 goals and 19 assists for a total of 34 points in 37 games.
Drafted 11th overall by the Washington Capitals in 2012, Forsberg was acquired by Nashville in a trade that sent Martin Erat to the Capitals.
In 301 games played in the NHL so far, the Swedish forward scored 106 goals and 119 assists for a total of 225 points. He also added 26 points in 42 playoff games.
The Predators are currently second in the Central division with a record of 29-11-7.
