Forsberg did not take part in the Avalanche morning skate in Calgary and won't play Thursday night against the Flames, Avalanche coach Joel Quenneville said.
"Peter is out, day to day," Quenneville said after the skate. "He's not playing tonight."
After signing with the Avs on Feb. 25, Forsberg made his debut against Vancouver on March 4. He has played in only four of Colorado's nine games since. He missed four straight games with a groin injury before playing nearly 20 minutes at Minnesota on Monday.
