Back in Sweden with his career all but over, Forsberg played in only three games for Modo in 2008-09 and 23 in 2009-10 but decided before the NHL All-Star break in January 2011 to try one more comeback. Signing a $1 million deal to play for Colorado for the rest of the season, he voiced concern about his ankle, but made his debut with the Avs on Feb. 11 against Columbus. He played in two games without scoring a point, and decided to retire. He leaves the NHL with 249 goals and 885 points in 708 career games, ranked fourth all-time in assists per game (. 901) behind Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Bobby Orr.
