PHILADELPHIA -- Former NHL MVP Peter Forsberg, who has not played since last season, could decide by tomorrow if he's healthy enough to make a return to the league.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren expected Forsberg, who won two Stanley Cups with Colorado, to decide if he wants to resume his career after struggling with foot and ankle injuries.
"The last I heard is Peter is going to decide probably by (tomorrow) whether he's going to play," Holmgren said yesterday.
The Flyers certainly are in the mix of teams interested in Forsberg.
Forsberg spent 1 1/2 seasons in Philadelphia and was the captain last season until he was traded to Nashville.
He also helped lead Sweden to Olympic gold medals in Lillehammer in 1994 and Turin in 2006.
Injuries have plagued him in recent years and he hasn't played more than 60 games in a season since suiting up for 75 games in 2002-03 with the Avalanche.
FEDOROV BACK IN ACTION
COLUMBUS -- The Blue Jackets activated centre Sergei Fedorov from injured reserve yesterday and sent left winger Joakim Lindstrom to their American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse.
The 38-year-old Fedorov played last night at St. Louis. He missed 13 games because of a concussion suffered Jan. 17 at Phoenix.
RANGERS SIGN TYUTIN
NEW YORK -- The Rangers re-signed defenceman Fedor Tyutin yesterday, keeping him away from free agency.
Contract terms weren't immediately available for Tyutin.
HAWKS SUMMON BRODEUR
CHICAGO -- The Blackhawks recalled goaltender Michael Brodeur from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League yesterday.
First-string goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin sprained his knee Wednesday against Columbus. Brodeur backed up Patrick Lalime yesterday against Colorado.
