Filip Forsberg - The Next Ones: NHL 2012 Draft Prospect Profile | The Hockey Writers:

"By now, one likely knows that Filip is no relation to Peter. However, if you’ve seen him play his on-ice presence is definitely reminiscent of Foppa. This version of Forsberg is a safe bet to develop  into a complete player in the NHL. He has the ability to raise the play of his teammates in a synergistic manner. He’s mainly played as a winger, and his strong play along the boards compliments this. However, there have been hints from the hockey world that he might thrive as a centre as well, which may make him even more desirable to some NHL squads. I wouldn’t bank on that position switch at this point though.

Team Sweden’s head coach Roger Rönnberg praised Forsberg throughout the 2012 World Juniors in Calgary: “He’s a skillful player. He can contribute in all parts of the game. He can play the power play, the penalty kill, and he’s really a hard-working, good skater. And he loves to battle. Of course, he can also be the guy who makes the difference offensively.”"
