DENVER (AP) - Peter Forsberg will rejoin the Colorado Avalanche - for a reunion, not another comeback.

Although, the Swedish star hasn't completely ruled out a return to the NHL, either.

Forsberg plans to attend the Avalanche's celebration to mark the 15th anniversary of their 1996 Stanley Cup championship on Oct. 7 at Pepsi Center. In all, 26 players and coaches will be in attendance for the on-ice reunion.

As for a return, the 37-year-old Forsberg said it "doesn't look too good" but that he hasn't made a definitive decision yet.

Forsberg, who won two Stanley Cups titles with Colorado and was the NHL's MVP in 2003, has only played sporadically in recent years because of a bothersome right foot.
