For those counting backwards using fingers and toes, 14 weeks from today is early November, meaning Forsling is missing training camp and potentially the first month of the regular season.
Forsling, 22, had 13 points in 41 games in the NHL last season with the Blackhawks. He has appeared in 79 regular season games for Chicago over the past two seasons. Forsling has one year remaining on his current contract with a $872,500 and will become a restricted free agent next summer.
