Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Overtime hero Saturday

Forsling scored two goals, including the overtime winner, in Saturday's 7-6 victory over the Devils. The Panthers were staring at a 6-2 deficit after two periods, but they scored the afternoon's final five tallies in an incredible comeback, with Forsling snapping home two of them -- including the most important one. The 25-year-old blueliner's own recent scoring success is just as improbable -- he has three goals and four points in the last two games after managing only four points (all assists) in his prior 21 contests.

Panthers' Gustav Forsling: First goal since Jan. 29

Forsling had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Blackhawks. Forsling helped Aleksander Barkov open the scoring in the first, then pushed Florida's lead to 3-0 by lighting the lamp for the first time since Jan. 29. While Forsling had mustered only four assists since that point, this game could mark the beginning of a more productive stretch. With Aaron Ekblad (lower body) having been placed on LTIR on March 20, there will be more opportunities for the team's remaining blueliners to contribute to Florida's league-best offense throughout the rest of the season.

Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Warrior performance in overtime win

Forsling logged an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sharks. Forsling left the game for much of the first period and part of the second after blocking a shot off his knee. He was able to gut it out, and he played a key role in setting up Frank Vatrano for the game-winner in overtime. Forsling had gone seven games without a point entering Tuesday -- he's had a couple of stretches of solid offense this season, but he's mostly a defensive presence. The defenseman has 24 points, 87 shots on net, 60 blocked shots and a plus-28 rating in 51 appearances in a top-four role.

Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Highly effective against Sharks

Forsling registered a goal and an assist to complement a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks. Forsling earned a go-ahead goal in the first period, but the Sharks would ultimately bite back and force overtime. However, Forsling patiently worked in tandem with Jonathan Huberdeau, who fed Sam Bennett for the game-winning goal in the extra frame. Forsling is enjoying a breakout campaign comprised of two goals, 19 assists and a plus-23 rating through 36 games.

Panthers defenseman Gustav Forsling added to COVID protocol

One of the less talked-about developments that have made the Florida Panthers such a deep, imposing team the last two seasons has been the progression of Gustav Forsling, a fifth-round pick snatched off waivers in early 2021. Forsling has become one of the most trusted defensemen on the Florida roster and is averaging more than 21 minutes a night for the Panthers this year.

Panthers' Gustav Forsling: Munches minutes in return

Forsling (undisclosed) had two blocked shots in 22:18 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues. Forsling had a rather uneventful evening, but the important thing is that he was back in the lineup after missing three games. Only Aaron Ekblad (26:32) saw more ice time than Forsling, so it's safe to say that whatever injury led to Forsling's stint on IR is no longer bothering him.

Panthers: Shining a light on Gustav Forsling

During the offseason, the Florida Panthers elected to buyout the final two years of Keith Yandle’s contract. Although he was still producing offense well, the team felt it was time to move on from his $6.35 million cap hit because of his struggles in the defensive zone. Now, Gustav Forsling is thriving in his expanded role and has been a nice replacement for Yandle.
