Swedish star Peter Forsberg was concussed when he was checked into the boards by Peter Nordstrom, disrupting his comeback in the Swedish Elite League playoffs on Thursday.
Forsberg, sidelined for six weeks after breaking a bone in his hand, was cross-checked in the second period while playing for MoDo against Farjestad, which won 5-4 and led the best-of-seven quarterfinal series 3-1. Nordstrom was ejected.
I'll bet this spells retirement for Peter for sure. Damn. There goes this hockey generation's Cam Neely.
(Yes, totally different players and styles, but in terms of talent and ability – pretty much samey-same.)
