Forsberg's Last Game?

Peter Forsberg suffered a concussion after being cross-checked into the boards during a game in the Swedish League a couple of nights ago.

It was Forsberg's first game back after missing six weeks with a broken hand. His father coaches the team, MoDo, and says this:

"He's had his share of concussions, I think it is enough now (to cause him to retire)"

The player who made the illegal hit was ejected from the game and has been suspended for the next two.

He played the game so hard for so long, it was bound to happen. He may well be the best complete player I've ever had the pleasure of watching play.

As an Avs fan, I'm saddened but not surprised. Of course, who knows when/if the Avs will ever play again, with or witout Forsberg.
