Centre Alex Forsyth was a solid two-way player who could create offense and use his size effectively against opposing forwards. He dressed for one game with the Washington Capitals in 1976-77 and spent the rest of his relatively short pro career in the minors.
The native of Galt, Ontario played for two years with the Kingston Canadians of the OHA. After scoring 27 goals in 1974-75, he was chosen 18th overall in the 1975 Amateur Draft.
As a first year pro, Forsyth was solid for the AHL's Richmond Robins in 1975-76. The year he joined the dreadful Capitals for one game he scored 47 points and was a tireless worker for the Springfield Indians of the AHL. Forsyth retired after spending the 1977-78 season with the Tulsa Oilers of the CHL.
