Peter Forsberg is expected to announce his retirement from hockey Monday after a two-game comeback with the Colorado Avalanche.
Forsberg signed a $1 million contract with the Avalanche, the team he led to Stanley Cup Finals in 1996 and 2001, last week. After playing just two games—losses to the Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets—and recording no points, he is calling it quits once more. A delay with his visa prevented him from joining the team sooner after announcing his comeback in January.
Forsberg retired after the 2008 season as a member of the Avalanche after injury-plagued stints with the Predators and Philadelphia Flyers. Forsberg played the last two seasons with MoDo, the Swedish team he made his pro debut with before being drafted by the Flyers in the 1991 NHL draft.
Forsberg was one of the most exciting and talented players in hockey when he was healthy, and he won the Hart Trophy (NHL's MVP) and the Art Ross Trophy (league's leading scorer) after the 2003 season.
Here is video of some of his greatest highlights as compiled by one YouTube user.
