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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
