News: Forsberg potted three goals -- the final one into an empty net on the power play -- for his first NHL playoff hat trick Thursday in Game 5 against the Blackhawks.
Impact: Forsberg's offensive contributions were a huge reason that the Predators were able to stave off elimination and send the series to Game 6 in Chicago. This has really been a tale of two series for the Swedish winger, who has five points in Nashville's two wins and zero in the three losses.

News: Forsberg scored his first career NHL playoff goal and added an assist in Friday's Game 2 win over Chicago.
Impact: A strong night for Forsberg, whose line of Craig Smith and Mike Ribeiro combined for seven points in the win. Forsberg hasn't show any signs of inexperience in his first two NHL playoff games, firing 10 shots on goal and recording a plus-2 rating. The 20-year-old sniper is a lethal scorer who will need to continue putting up points if the Predators hope to knock off the Blackhawks.

News: Forsberg netted his 26th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
Impact: Forsberg finished the season strong, recording three goals and four points in his last three games. The 20-year-old rookie wraps up the season with 64 points, and his emergence was a major reason why the Predators were able to snag a playoff spot. The all-around fantasy stud, who recorded six power-play goals, six game-winning goals and 237 shots on goal this season, is an intriguing option in playoff pools, especially if you're betting on the Predators going deep.
