Predators recall Forsberg from Milwaukee
The Nashville Predators recalled forward Filip Forsberg from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League on Sunday.

The Nashville Predators recalled forward Filip Forsberg from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League on Sunday in advance of their game against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Forsberg, 19, has five points (one goal, four assists) in 12 games with Nashville and 27 points (10 goals, 17 assists) in 37 games with Milwaukee. The native of Ostervala, Sweden was named the MVP and top forward after helping his country win a silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship. Forsberg had four goals and eight assists in seven games to win his third straight medal at the tournament.

A first-round pick of the Washington Capitals in the 2012 NHL Draft (No. 11), the Predators acquired him in a trade before the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline for Martin Erat and Michael Latta.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
