While the NHL is shut down for the foreseeable future, international hockey is in full bloom. For example: Sweden, where Washington Capitals 2012 first round pick Filip Forsberg played his second full season for Leksands Idrottsförening of the Allsvenskan league.
On Tuesday the 18-year-old (who was rated the top-rated European skater going into this year’s draft) scored his first goal of the 2012-13 season and recorded an assist in Leksands IF’s 5-3 victory over Tingsryd.
