2018 Fantasy Outlook
Forsbacka-Karlsson missed time this past season with a concussion, but when healthy, he logged 15 goals and 32 points in 58 games for AHL Providence during his first year as a pro. Looking ahead, the 6-foot-1, 192-pounder will face serious competition in order to secure a roster spot with the big club next season, but his solid two-way game down the middle gives him a chance to make the cut now that former third-line center Riley Nash is with the Blue Jackets.

Reassigned to AHL
CBoston Bruins  Minors
January 28, 2019
Forsbacka-Karlsson was sent down to AHL Providence on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old had a point in back-to-back games before the All-Star break, but that wasn't enough to keep him from being sent back down to the AHL's Bruins. Forsbacka-Karlsson and Ryan Donato were both reassigned, with Peter Cehlarik and Trent Frederic called up in corresponding moves.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Forsbacka-Karlsson, whom the Bruins selected 45th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, is coming off a 2016-17 season in which he recorded 14 goals and 33 points in 39 games for Boston University, then tasted his first NHL action in a one-game April cameo with the big club. The 6-foot-1, 184-pounder profiles as a heady two-way center and has drawn comparisons to Patrice Bergeron, but at just 20 years old, he may be destined to start out by spending some time at the AHL level, barring injuries up the middle or a trade involving third-line pivot Ryan Spooner.
