2018 Fantasy Outlook
Forsling took a big step forward in his development last season, setting career highs in goals (three), points (13), shots on goal (82) and average ice time (19:09) in 41 appearances with the Blackhawks. The Swedish blueliner was fully expected to compete for a spot on the Opening Night roster during training camp, but that will no longer be a possibility, as he was surprisingly forced to undergo wrist surgery in late July which is expected to keep him sidelined until mid-November. Fantasy owners looking for defensive help as the season progresses should keep an eye on Forsling's recovery, but he won't be worth a draft pick in most formats. Read Past Outlooks

Inks two-way deal with Carolina

Forsling signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The Hurricanes acquired Forsling's rights in a trade that sent Calvin de Haan and Aleksi Saarela to Chicago in late June, so there was little doubt that they'd be signing him to a new deal this offseason. The 23-year-old blueliner appeared in 122 NHL games over the past three seasons with the Blackhawks, notching eight goals and 27 points while posting a minus-8 rating over that span. Forsling appears poised to once again split time between the NHL and AHL in 2019-20, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars during this year's drafts.
