It is in fact the same Klasen. I agree that size and likely speed are his obstacles...and he also reportedly showed up to camp a little on the "pudgy" side, but he ended up staying in Nashville most of the summer to work with the Preds' strength and conditioning coach, which says a lot about his commitment. He's a darkhorse to end up making the team this season, along with fellow swede Jonas Andersson.
