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. Apr 24 - 11:32 AM

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.

Filip Forsberg will be one of as many as nine Nashville players making their NHL debuts on Wednesday night in Game 1 against Chicago.

Forsberg was a big part of the Predators' success this season. He led the team in scoring with 26 goals and 63 points in 82 games. 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 scored the lone goal for Nashville in its 4-1 loss to the Stars on Saturday.

Forsberg’s goal gave him 26 and 63 points on the year, both of which are one off the rookie highs. Ryan Ellis and Mike Ribeiro got the assists.

Filip Forsberg potted his 25th goal of the season in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

He opened the scoring at the 2:58 mark of the first period and Nashville led 2-0 after one. However, the Wild stormed back with four unanswered markers to claim the win. Forsberg is tied for second among NHL rookies in goals and points (62).
Apr 10 - 11:20 AM

Filip Forsberg hit the 60-point mark in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Dallas.

Forsberg picked up a goal and an assist in the game to give him 24 goals and 61 points in 74 games this season. Veteran forward Mike Ribeiro picked up an assist on Saturday night and he also has 61 points in 2014-15. It's the first time since 2007-08 that the Predators have two 60-point players in the same season (Jason Arnott and J.P. Dumont).
Apr 5 - 10:14 AM

Filip Forsberg got a goal and an assist in the Predators’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars on Saturday night.

Forsberg scored in the first and assisted on Ryan Ellis’ third-period marker. He has 24 goals and 61 points this season, tying him for the rookie lead with Johnny Gaudreau. James Neal also had a goal and an assist in the loss.
Apr 4 - 11:29 PM

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?

Filip Forsberg tapped home the overtime winner over Montreal on Tuesday night.

On the power play, no less. It was his first goal in 13 games, however. Forsberg has gone cold since January, scoring just five goals and 16 points in that time. He has 22 goals and 56 points through 74 games this season.
Mar 25 - 3:49 AM

Filip Forsberg earned an assist in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim.

However, his season-high goalless drought reached 10 games. The rookie sensation has been ice cold with only four points in his past 16 outings. Forsberg still has the rookie scoring lead with 54 points in 71 games.
Mar 16 - 1:15 PM

Filip Forsberg has not scored a goal in eight games.

The rookie has been slumping of late as he has registered only one assist during that span. This recent slide could be hurting Forsberg's Calder Trophy fortunes, although we still regard him as the favorite to win the award.
Mar 14 - 12:28 PM

Filip Forsberg scored his 20th goal of the season, but Nashville was no match for the Islanders Thursday night in a 5-2 loss.

Forsberg now has 51 points through 58 games this season but has tailed off a bit. In his first 28 games he notched an impressive 29 points, while managing 22 points in past 28 games. Nonetheless, the rookie is still on pace for a tremendous output this season.
Feb 19 - 9:44 PM

Filip Forsberg has been playing on the third line with Calle Jarnkrok and Taylor Beck.

He hasn't scored a point in two straight games, which hasn't occurred since Jan. 16-17. Forsberg did manage to post six shots in Tuesday's win over San Jose, so perhaps some offense is just around the corner. Hopefully, he'll be back on one of the Predators' top-two lines soon.
