Forsberg ready for another comeback in Sweden

STOCKHOLM – Peter Forsberg is set to play for his hometown team Modo in a Swedish Elite League home opener against Frolunda on Thursday in yet another comeback attempt following a lingering foot injury.

The former NHL MVP has practiced with the team since early August and also played two games during a preseason tournament in Switzerland a month ago.

“I really played awfully and I was ready to quit,” Forsberg said on the team’s Web site. “But I’ve felt good recently and I’m ready to go. If I have made six or seven comebacks before, I suppose I can make another one.”

Modo gave the 36-year-old Forsberg a one-week tryout contract, which means he’ll play at least three games. He can play with Modo until the NHL season begins Oct. 2 without jeopardizing a possible comeback in the NHL.
