Forsberg, signed a contract with the Colorado Avalanche on February, 6th 2011. Known for his on-ice vision and physical play, Forsberg is considered perhaps the most complete player in the NHL.

Internationally, with the Swedish national team, he won two World Championships and two Olympic hockey gold medals. He is a member of the Triple Gold Club and the only Swede who has won the three competitions twice. As of the end of the 2008–09 NHL season, he is the fourth-highest all-time Swedish point scorer in the NHL regular season. In each of his 12 NHL seasons, Forsberg never had a minus plus-minus rating, totaling an overall career rating of plus 242.

Peter Forsberg is the son of Kent Forsberg, who was the former coach for Modo Hockey and the Swedish national team. Peter Forsberg has been coached by his father for a significant part of his career: the two teamed up from 1991 to 1994 in Modo Hockey, later for the national team in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, then for the 1998 Olympic ice hockey tournament, and for the 1998 World Championship, which Sweden won. They also own a Swedish development company named Forspro Company. The company co-funded the Modo Hockey team's new Swedbank Arena in Örnsköldsvik.
