Forsberg to play for Sweden
Still putting this together at Globe on Hockey, but it looks like Peter Forsberg's return to hockey is going to take a detour with an appearance with Sweden at the Karjala Cup in Finland before he heads over to the NHL.
Here's the Swedish-language link.
Why's this noteworthy? Well, for one it lets us know Forsberg is in good enough shape health-wise to even attempt to play in high-level competition. It also might give us more of a timetable as to when he'll be able to play in the NHL again.
Teams interested in signing him may also be looking to scout the tournament now to see just how his off-season recovery has gone.
UPDATE I've got a few quotes from Forsberg up now.
