Holmgren said that Forsberg is spending “more time” with (equipment assistant) Harry Bricker than he probably wants to, an indication that the Swedish center still is lacking total comfort in the boot, despite the surgery.

Off to the worst start in franchise history, the team received more bad news yesterday when it learned center Jeff Carter suffered a broken bone in the tibia portion of his left ankle during last Thursday’s game against Tampa Bay and will be out of action approximately six weeks.
It’s a big blow to a lineup already hurting for offense. Carter, who scored 23 goals in his rookie season last year, appeared to be just getting into a rhythm after a slow start when the injury hit.
