Calder Trophy Watch: NHL Rookie Spotlight

4 of 8

Filip Forsberg 

Sitting right behind Pearson in the rookie skating race is the talented Nashville Predators rookie Filip Forsberg. There was a lot of attention on Forsberg before this season began and he’s answer the bell. He too sits with 7 points through his first few contests. He’s tied for the team lead in scoring and is looking like a lock to earn one of the Predators open top 6 spots.

Forsberg is a gifted playmaker with a deadly shot, a nightmare to defend against night in and night out. You never know if he’ll thread the needle with a perfect pass or wire home a lazer.
