Just four weeks ago I indicated that Peter Forsberg was finally going to give up his repeated comeback attempts and just retire. Well that retirement stint didn't last too long.
In what appears to be Forsberg trying one final time to make a comeback, the Avalanche announced Friday that the 37-year-old will begin practicing with the team starting Saturday morning. There is no signed contract or deal in place. Forsberg is only practicing with the team, for now.
A statement released by Colorado quoted Forsberg saying that he wants to see where he's at physically in order to make what could very well be a final decision on his career.
According to the Denver Post, Forsberg's agent, Don Baizley, called Avs GM Greg Sherman earlier this week to ask if his client could skate with the team.
Pretty sad actually. Though I'm giving good odds he never plays another game in the NHL.
