Peter Forsberg is one of the best hockey players to ever don a Colorado Avalanche sweater, and although at age 49 he may be a bit too old to compete in the NHL, he’s still lacing up his skates, and he’s still dominating….

A recent Facebook post from Hockey Beast says, “A 49-year-old Peter Forsberg has stepped onto the ice once again. He’s started playing in a senior league in Switzerland, and yes, he’s still got it.
Last year, he recorded 20 points in only four games, and this season has started in the same impressive fashion. He’s, of course, playing with the No. 21 on his back, and we feel sorry for every opponent in the league. What a legend!”

With some of the Avalanche’s injury troubles this year, maybe they need to talk Peter the Great into a few games at Ball Arena!
