    Post Forsberg asks for a trade

    by Gregg Drinnan

    F Alex Forsberg, the first overall selection in the WHL’s 2010 bantam draft, chose not to return to the Prince George Cougars following the Christmas break and has asked for a trade... Forsberg, 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, is from Waldheim, Sask. He will turn 18 on Jan. 4... He went home on Dec. 17 and didn’t return as the Cougars resumed play with a 5-1 loss to the Royals in Victoria last night... Forsberg had 40 points, including 15 goals, in 51 games last season. This season, he has 19 points, nine of them goals, in 31 games... His 19-year-old brother Jesse played three seasons with the Cougars and was the team captain when he asked for a trade last summer. He is now with the Seattle Thunderbirds, who gave up F Colin Jacobs, 19. Seattle also got two 2013 bantam draft picks (fifth- and seventh-rounders).

    Before the Christmas break, Cougars head coach Dean Clark, in speaking of Forsberg, told Sheri Lamb of the Prince George Citizen: “Points aren’t just going to happen. With his skills he’s going to create something but it’s not just going to happen, you have to put the effort out there all the time. Mentally he has to get a little bit stronger.
    “If he can understand he has to come back in some half-decent shape he’ll be fine.”

    Instead, Forsberg chose not to come back at all.

    Not much of a surprise really, with all the travel PG has & with how poorly they are ran this doesnsurprise me 1 bit. Maybe a trade out East is coming closer to home.
