Predators loan Forsberg to Sweden

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile announced Sunday that the club has loaned forward Filip Forsberg to the Swedish National Team for the 2014 World Junior Championships, taking place Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden.

Forsberg, 19, has five points (one goal, four assists) in 12 games with Nashville, and eight points (three goals, five assists) in seven games with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League this season.

The Ostervala, Sweden native helped Sweden win gold at the 2012 World Junior Championships, and captained the Swedes to a silver medal at the 2013 World Juniors, being named to the tournament's All-Star Team in the process.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
