Filip Forsberg scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Not bad for a guy who was making his return to the lineup after missing 11 games because of an upper-body injury.

He also registered the primary assist on Viktor Arvidsson's goal to make it 5-0 in the third frame. Forsberg finished the night with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and three hits in 14:49 of ice time. He's up to 16 goals and 36 points in 38 games this season.

Filip Forsberg is expected to return to the Predators lineup on Thursday night.

Filip Forsberg (upper body) has been activated off the injured reserve list.

That seems to suggest that Forsberg will draw into the Predators' lineup on Thursday. As previously noted, Pontus Aberg was skating with the scratches during the morning skate, so he might be who is drawing out of the lineup to make room for Forsberg. This would be Forsberg's first game since Dec. 29. He has 15 goals and 34 points in 37 contests this season.

Filip Forsberg (upper body) appears to be probable to play Thursday night.

That being said, Forsberg wasn't willing to confirm anything, so we'll have to see. Pontus Aberg was skating with the team's scratches, so Forsberg might be replacing him in the lineup. He hasn't been able to play since Dec. 29.

Filip Forsberg (upper body) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Jan 30 - 7:36 PM

Filip Forsberg (upper body) skated again on Tuesday morning, but it's unclear if he will play against Chicago.

Jan 30 - 2:25 PM

Filip Forsberg (upper body) was back on the top line during Monday's practice.

Jan 29 - 3:10 PM

Filip Forsberg (upper body) is wearing a regular jersey during Monday's practice after he skated that way last Wednesday as well.
