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

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
