Forsberg Months Away From Playing

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,

If you’re an Avalanche fan still holding out hope Peter Forsberg will play again this coming season, don’t even think about it until at least Christmas.

After consulting with more doctors about his troubled right foot in his native Sweden, Forsberg was told he would need several months of rehabilitation if he wanted to have hope of playing again, a source close to the Avs star said.

added 8:22pm, from Rick Sadowski of the Rocky Mountain News,

According to a report in the Swedish newspaper Expressen, Forsberg has a muscle problem in his right foot that has been the root of his health troubles in recent seasons, and he will need several months of rehabilitation for a chance to salvage his career….

A muscle on one side of Forsberg’s foot doesn’t work normally because a muscle on the other side has caused an imbalance. Forsberg told the paper that he can walk and even run without a problem but has trouble when he puts on a skate.
