Forsberg spent some time with the Predators in each of the past two seasons, playing five games in the 2012-13 season after being traded from the Washington Capitals and playing 13 games in 2013-14. He wasn't able to consistently find a way to produce at the NHL level.
Nashville made the decision to send Forsberg to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League to give him more playing time and the opportunity to develop his two-way game. Forsberg credits his time in Milwaukee as a big factor in the success he's had this season.
"I got to play a lot of games," said Forsberg, who leads all NHL rookies with 22 points and is tied for the lead with nine goals. "We played a lot of [three games in three nights] and you really get a feeling of what it takes to be successful every night. I think that's the most important part of the success I've had so far."
