Forsberg Ends Very Brief NHL Comeback

If you blinked, you would have missed it. But this time around, you didn't miss much. Petr Forsberg, the premier Swedish-born player to ever play in the NHL, announced his retirement once again from the NHL after a brief comeback try with his former team the Colorado Avalanche.

Forsberg, 37, retires leaving behind a strong legacy of being a part of a powerful team in Colorado wining Stanley Cup championship twice and the Calder trophy as rookie of the year in 1995.

It was only three games into his comeback and before his home debut on February 14th, did Forsberg decide to cautiously retreat back into retirement citing the vulnerabilities that arose since struggling with foot injuries during the later part of his career.
