An NHL season just isn’t a proper NHL season without rumblings of a Peter Forsberg comeback attempt. According to reports, the 37-year old Forsberg is set to begin skating with the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Forsberg via the Denver Post:

“I need to see where I am physically and practicing with NHL players is the best way to find that out.”

Before anyone starts winding the clock back to 2002, it’s important to remember that “Foppa’s” groin and ankles are made of plaster and that he hasn’t played in the NHL in two years.
