Forsberg was ranked 25th on The Hockey News' draft eligible players for that year. CSB had him in the late teens (18 or 19 as I recall). The Flyers had him as a top five. It was Inge Hammarstrom (scout) who was very influential in the selection. It was a surprise to many that Forsberg was chosen that high.
