Here We Go Again

via the Denver Post,

The oft-injured former Avalanche star has committed to making another attempt to play in the NHL and, like last season, hopes to be with a team by the NHL playoffs. If Forsberg, 35, can play, it would likely be with the Avalanche.

“I want to play. I hate sitting in the stands and not be able to be out there on the ice,” Forsberg told the Swedish television program “Hockeynight” on Monday. “If it doesn’t work this time, I’ll call it quits. But I have the best doctor in the world (Bertil Romanus), and without him I would have given up already. I’m still hopeful.”

Forsberg revealed he wore electrodes on his troublesome right foot for some games with the Avs after his late-season return.

“(I had) a battery package hidden in my pants. When I turned it on, the foot straightened in the skates. It was kind of funny,” Forsberg said.
