The Nashville Predators will look to complete contract extensions with both Filip Forsberg and Seth Jones in the near future.

Both players are key pieces of Nashville's team and they are scheduled to become Restricted Free-Agents after the 2015-16 season. "It's something that we'll probably engage, have some conversations as we get closer to training camp," General Manager David Poile said. "In my mind, I think the relationships are good with the players and the agents. When we (find) the opportune time to move forward with something, whether that's later in the summer or more probably during the season next year, we will try to (find) the correct time to do that."

Filip Forsberg is leading Team Sweden and the rest of the World Hockey Championship with eight goals through the seven game round robin.

As Sweden gets ready to take on Team Russia in the Quarter Finals, a duo of other tournament leaders sit atop the scoring table. Sweden's Oliver Ekman-Larsson is tied with Russia's Yevgeni Dadonov along with Canada's Jason Spezza and Matt Duchene with 11 points.

Filip Forsberg scored his fifth goal in four games at the World Championship on Wednesday versus Canada.

Victor Rask, Oscar Moller and Anton Lander had Sweden's other goals in the team's first defeat of the tournament. Loui Eriksson had two assists in the match. The Swedes had a 3-0 lead after the first, but Canada rallied for a 6-4 victory to stay perfect after four games.

Filip Forsberg was disappointed to not be nominated for the Calder Trophy.

"It's tough (not to be a finalist)," Forsberg said. "All the players are good ... but you want to be up there, you want to be one of the top three. I'm not going to lie." Aaron Ekblad, Johnny Gaudreau and Mark Stone were named the finalists for the rookie of the year award. Forsberg registered 26 goals and 63 points in 82 games for Nashville during the regular season. He responded to the snub with a hat trick in Game 5 against the Blackhawks to send the series back to Chicago for Game 6.

Filip Forsberg scored his first career hat trick during Thursday's 5-2 Game Five win over Chicago.

The hat trick was also Nashville's first ever in the playoffs as well. Forsberg started by intercepting Marcus Kruger's defensive zone faceoff win and putting one under the bar just two ticks into the clock. The weirdest part was that Forsberg wasn't even looking at the net. Add in a weak-side one-timer feed from Mike Fisher, and a power play empty-netter, and Forsberg has night to remember with his teammates and Predators fans everywhere.

Filip Forsberg recorded his first career playoff goal and assist during Friday's 6-2 victory over Chicago to tie the series at one.

Forsberg was a force to be reckoned with all night long. This was exemplified well by how he followed up his own rebound to score in the third period, and one shift later dove to send Craig Smith on a goal-scoring breakaway. Forsberg finished with three total shots, two takeaways, and a block across 18:24 of work to go along with his third period points.

Mattias Ekholm, Seth Jones and Calle Jarnkrok will likely be in the lineup as well, while Taylor Beck, Mike Santorelli, Kevin Fiala, Victor Bartley and goalie Carter Hutton could be in the fold as well.

Filip Forsberg factored into the Nashville Predators' 4-3 win against the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

He scored the goal that booted Braden Holtby from Washington's net and also collected two assists, giving him 59 points in 76 games this season. He deserves strong consideration for the 2015 Calder.
Mar 28 - 3:38 PM

With the Predators visiting former coach Barry Trotz in Washington Saturday there was much talk about the trade between the teams involving Calder Trophy candidate Filip Forsberg.

Capitals' Assistant General Manager Brian MacLellan, who was involved in the April 2013 deal that had Forsberg move from Washington to Nashville for Martin Erat, certainly had some thoughts on Friday. "I think he's [Forsberg] played well," said MacLellan. "Obviously he's one of the leading candidates for the Calder Trophy. If you're asking, would I like to do a do-over? Yeah, sure." Forsberg has shattered all of the Preds' rookie scoring records and is the leading candidate for rookie honors. Why wouldn't the Caps want a do-over?
