Round 2: 34th pick....

Welcome to Atlanta - CARL KLINGBERG! - LW

TSN guys said he's like a Kirk Maltby type of guy "Swedish agitator".... was a possible 1st rounder yesterday (projected 28th at TSN)..

Quote:
International Scouting Services: "Klingberg is a very talented playmaking winger who can also play center. He has great touch with the puck and is particularly strong on the PP. A very fluid and powerful skater, he is constantly in motion and understands the offensive zone very well, especially away from the puck. He always seems to get open at the right times and is not afraid to get to the net to make a play and with his great 6'03” 205lbs frame, he is very hard to contain inside the slot. Can really take over the offensive zone. Showed ability, skill and speed to beat defender wide and then cut back to the net. Displayed a good shot with quick release. Big player who skates well, plays physical, and is willing to go to those tough areas to score.
