As of this writing, Filip Forsberg has played all of his career with the Nashville Predators, the organization where the Swedish Center has showcased his skills.

Forsberg debuted with Nashville after the Washington Capitals drafted him in 2012.  The Center was a First Team All-Rookie in 2014-15, scoring 63 Points, and he cracked the 50-Point mark that year and the next four seasons after.  He dipped below 50 Points in the two seasons, but last year, Forsberg had his best season to date with 42 Goals, 42 Assists, and 84 Points, and emerged as the Predator's top Center.

Still a Predator, Forsberg has provided offensive punch to the Nashville roster for years and could for years coming.
