Carl Klingberg(48) St. John’s IceCaps

Carl Klingberg

Atlanta Thrashers‘ 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft (#34 overall), Swedish-born right wing Carl Klingberg(48) had already played two full pro seasons in the SHL before signing a three-year entry level deal committing to North American hockey.

He skated in 8 AHL games with then farm club Chicago Wolves and one NHL contest.

He’s in the final campaign of his contract and looks to eclipse highs in both goals and points while holding onto a nicely accountable +11 rating.

The lanky looking 6’3″ 214 lbs. forward played in 6 games with Winnipeg Jets scoring no points and has been recalled once this season but did not play.

He’ll be a restricted free agent at the end of the current season but should have no problem netting a qualifying offer, if he decides to continue playing on this side of the pond.
