First games were tough on him, because he had to play with Nico Manelius, the worst defenseman in FEL. So Manelius <-> Karlsson was a pretty successful change.
Jokerit fan praising one of his own to high heavens, how cute. There's a reason why he was drafted on round 7. I'll be surprised if he ever makes it to NHL, but maybe Karlsson will have positive influence and give him a little push.
