Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg has been surrounded by high expectations since he was a 2011 first-round draft pick. Now the Predators are hoping he can live up to those levels.
What might help him is having spent all of last season in North America, the first time the Swedish forward has done that.
"[Last] year helped me a lot and getting more comfortable here," Forsberg told NHL.com correspondent Josh Cooper. "Hopefully I can show how much that year meant to me."
