Interesting that he's essentially on our first penalty kill pairing as well.
Not impeccable enough to make up for his size disadvantage the other night against Canada. He's still at least a couple years away from prime time...but I do agree though if there's a pure skilled Dman out there that can rival Karlsson it might be Vatanen...but I'm sure anyone in the NHL can, he's quite the little marvel, and everything is going to get a bit better as he grows a little over the next couple years.

The goals were nice but his overall game was pretty flawless. One turnover that I saw and it was a harmless one.
