Canucks interested in Forsberg Add to ...

Last year it was Mats Sundin. Now it's Peter Forsberg. The Vancouver Canucks are interested in signing the former winner of the Hart Memorial Trophy if he's up to NHL snuff, general manager Mike Gillis confirmed yesterday. Vancouver has six people watching Forsberg at the Karjala Cup tournament in Finland, according to the Team 1040 AM.

Forsberg has joined the Swedish national team for the first time since the gold-medal game at the 2006 Turin Olympics, but has played just nine NHL games over the last three seasons, and none since 2007-08.
