Forsberg is a great puck-moving forward who has loads of flair. He also has the confidence to make solid plays while carrying the puck through the neutral-zone. He's played 10 games in the Swedish Elite League this season, scoring 1 goal. Collberg is more of an offensive-dynamo, who plays his best in the offensive-zone thanks to an impressive, "nose for the net". He's played 5 games in the Swedish Elite League this season, but has yet to produce offensively.
Both players produced below-average grades in the game scouted. The Swedish coach shortened his bench as the game progressed, keeping the younger forwards on the bench in order to play his older offensive-players.
