Gustav Forsling isn't upset that he was unable to stick with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2017-18.
"I just tried to think positive and do as best as I can down here and try to get back up as fast as possible," said Forsling, who spent the second half of the campaign in the minors. "I'm still very young, I just wanted to keep developing down here. I know what it takes to be up there, I have to be more reliable every night. They want me to play my game and sometimes it's a good thing to get sent down to get your confidence back and keep playing your game. I think I've been more stable defensively. I think I've taken steps and I think they can trust me back there, so it feels good." He had a great start to the year and played in 41 games with the big club. Forsling, who is only 21 years of age, will try to secure his spot on the back end next season. May 20 - 10:46 AM
