A highly skilled two-way player. Forsberg is blessed with first class hockey sense and puck skills. He is a creative player, somewhat flashy, and can do the unexpected. In addition to being a great stick handler, he has also a very powerful shot and overall the tools to become a high scoring player. Furthermore, he skates well and takes care of his defensive responsibilities. Has good size, but could use more strength. Could also be more consistent. (EP 2012)
