(Sunrise, FL, December 27) – Flyers captain Peter Forsberg will return to the ice for Wednesday night's game in Florida against the Panthers at the Bank Atlantic Center. Forsberg skated with the team the last two days and will return from a concussion suffered on December 16 in Washington.
Peter Forsberg: "I felt great this morning and I thought I had a really good skate yesterday. I want to get out there and play as soon as I can."
Are you going to be careful or are you just going to go out and play? "I don't think I can be careful. I don't think I play that way, so I'm going to go out there and play as hard as I can. Of course, I don't think I'm going to run too many people at the beginning of the game but if I wasn't healthy enough to play I wouldn't be out there. I feel great and it shouldn't be any problem.
"We as a team need to win a couple games to get back, so it feels great to be able to get back and help the team win."
