Predators show interest in Forsberg
Peter Forsberg said Thursday he would like to return to the NHL, and Predators General Manager David Poile confirmed he had been in touch with Forsberg's agent over the last couple of days.

The 34-year-old Forsberg has been sidelined with a foot and ankle injury since finishing last season with Nashville. He had practiced with his hometown team of Modo in Sweden, but announced he would not be playing for that team.

Nashville acquired Forsberg from Philadelphia last season at the trade deadline for a player, a prospect and two draft picks. Forsberg became a free agent at the end of last season, ending his ties to the Predators.

"I told him we would be interested," Poile said. "But there was no indication from his agent as to where he wanted to play or who he wanted to play for. He didn't give a definitive timetable of when he would do it, nor did he say he was ready to play.

Take it with a grain of salt, but that would be a major coup for Poile, Freeman & Co.
