The 20-year-old has been outstanding this season. He has registered nine goals and 22 points in 21 games this season. He is turning into an elite fantasy option, especially in dynasty leagues.

In addition to his outstanding offensive output this season, Filip Forsberg has also been very strong without the puck in five on five situations.

Forsberg has registered a very impressive 20 points in 16 games but what is even more amazing is that he leads the NHL in plus minus with a plus 19 rating. That is five better than Anton Stralman and Vladimir Tarasenko who sit in second place with a plus 15 rating. "Obviously all the stats are basically just numbers," Forsberg said. "But that's a good thing to be plus because that means you have been on the ice for a lot of goals for the team." To this point, Forsberg is the favorite for the Calder Trohpy as the NHL's top rookie.

Filip Forsberg had a hand in both Predators goals in their 2-1 win over the Blues on Saturday night.

Forsberg scored and assisted. Think the Capitals want a re-do on the trade that sent Martin Erat to DC and Forsberg to Nashville over a year ago? Forsberg has been one of the most exciting young players in the league, with goals in four straight games and points five straight (eight total). The 20-year-old has six markers, 15 points and a plus-15 rating on the season. It’s unlikely he finishes with a point per game, but there’s no reason to think he can’t remain a factor all season. James Neal scored the other goal. Roman Josi and Mike Ribeiro notched the helpers.
