DENVER (AP) -Peter Forsberg won't play Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings, saying he needs to practice more with his Colorado Avalanche teammates before playing in a game.
He said he could make his Colorado debut Tuesday night against Vancouver. However, the team has only one practice scheduled before the Canucks game and Forsberg isn't sure that gives him enough time.
The Swedish forward skated for more than an hour Saturday morning with a few teammates. Forsberg said the altitude got to him a bit.
Forsberg signed a one-year deal with Colorado last Monday. His arrival in Denver was delayed until Friday night because of visa paperwork.
