Just when it seemed like his career was finished, Peter Forsberg appears ready for another comeback attempt as he will begin practicing with the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday. Forsberg, one of the best players of the 1990's and a two-way force in his prime, hasn't played in the NHL since the 2007-08 season when he played nine games with the Avs, tallying one goal and 13 assists.

Injuries limited him for much of his career, and really started to derail him in 2003 as he never played more than 57 games over his final four seasons in the NHL. While he hasn't played this season, he spent the previous two years in the Swedish Elite League but was still limited to just 26 games over that period -- not including his appearance with the Swedish Olympic team during the 2010 Games in Vancouver -- due to injury.
Said Forsberg in a statement released by the Avalanche, "I need to see where I am physically and practicing with NHL players is the best way to find that out." p90x, p90x dvd, p90x cheap, power 90;ghd hair, ghd styler, tai chi , bao chi;vibram running shoes , five toe shoes , vibram five finger;nike air , adidas shoes , ugg boots , moncler jackets , coach handbags , chanel handbags.
The Avalanche aren't really lacking quality scoring depth entering this weekend as the fourth-highest scoring team in the NHL, but did just lose Tomas Fleischmann for the remainder of the season. Even if Forsberg does complete the comeback, he's clearly not going to be the dominant force he was in the mid-late 90's when he and Joe Sakic were forming the best 1-2 punch in the NHL down the middle, but it's still fun to look back at just how dominant a player he was, even though he always seemed to be fighting injury.
In 706 career games Forsberg has 249 goals and 636 assists, while he won the NHL's scoring title during the 2002-03 season with 106 points, despite missing seven games.
Originally selected with the sixth overall pick by the Philadelphia Flyers during the 1991 draft, Forsberg was eventually a key part of one of the biggest trades in NHL history when he and several other draft picks and players were sent to the Quebec Nordiques in exchange for Eric Lindros. The trade ultimately gave the Nordiques (who later moved to Colorado and become the Avalanche) one of their key building blocks for a pair of Stanley Cup Winning teams.
Later in his career he would spend parts of two seasons with the Flyers, while also playing for the Nashville Predators.
