Anton Forsberg Headshot

Forsberg -- along with Brandon Saad -- was brought over by Chicago via trade from Columbus on Friday in exchange for Artemi Panarin and Tyler Motte, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Rather than having to battle Joonas Korpisalo for the backup job with the Blue Jackets, Forsberg becomes the clear No. 2 with the Hawks behind starter Corey Crawford. The 24-year-old Swede was in the crease for just one NHL contest last year, as he spent the majority of the season with AHL Cleveland. In the minors, the netminder posted a solid 27-17-2 record with a .926 save percentage. Forsberg probably won't see as many starts as departed Scott Darling, but his fantasy value is certainly looking up after avoiding the logjam in Columbus.
