Filip Forsberg wants to continue developing into a well-round player.
"I want to be a 200-foot player that can be relied on in all situations," Forsberg said. "Last year was a great step towards that, playing on the (penalty kill) and in the last minutes. I want to keep continuing (to improve) that game. I don't want to be just an offensive player." He was used more on the penalty kill last season and wasn't sheltered as much in defensive situations.
