2009-10: Anton Forsberg played a little over half the season for MODO’s U20 team in the Swedish SuperElit league. Posted a 3.70 GAA and .874 Save % in 21 regular season games, but showed well in the post season with a 2.37 GAA and .903 Save % in 3 appearances.
2010-11: Spent the year with MODO’s U20 team with quality results: 2.90 GAA and .907 Save % in 33 games. He improved his results yet again in the playoffs, posting a 2.85 GAA and .921 Save % in 6 contests.
2011-12: Forsberg played for the Modo Hockey Ornskoldsvik backing up former Coyotes goalie Mikael Tellqvist (32 years old). In his first year of professional, Forsberg gave up 32 goals in 15 games (3.15 goals against average). A year after playing in the relegation series, Modo was able to make the playoffs this season. Modo lost in the first round of the Elitserien playoffs to Skellefteå AIK four games to two.
2012-13: Forsberg played for Sodertalje in Sweden's second league (Allsvenskan). He appeared in 46 games and was 24-9-0 with 3 shutouts and had a 2.04 goals against and .933 save percentage. Sodertalje was second behind Leksands in the regular season but did gain elevation to Sweden's Elitserien after finishing sixth in the Kval Series. Forsberg was 2-5 in eight Kval games with a 3.00 goals against and .909 save percentage. Forsberg signed a three-year entry-level contract with Columbus in May, 2013.
Forsberg has good size and is continuing to refine the technical aspects of his game. He is still quite raw, but has a lot of natural ability and needs a few years of positive development. He is often referred to as a butterfly goalie that plays a modern style and is not afraid to come to the tip of the crease. Playing in Sweden has shown the 20-year-old over 30 games of action in each of the past four seasons.
Forsberg agreed to a three-year, entry level contract with Columbus in May, 2013. Following his contract he was sent back to Modo for the 2013-14 season. He skated in 14 games with Modo during the 2011-12 season and will compete for playing time with Buffalo Sabers’ prospect Linus Ullmark, who appeared in six games with Modo last season, and Bernhard Starkbaum, who played 46 games for Modo in 2012-13.
