Well he wouldn't be first player to get depressed in the dark, cold and wet Finnish autumn. He's Scandinavian though, so he should be used to that.
His icetime makes it impossible to not get tired and play without mistakes. Yesterday his icetime was 31.56 and it felt like he was on the ice all the time. He was still Jokerit's best player offensively but his defensive game suffers from this. I'm sure he's not competing 100% which I understand since he doesn't need to do that to be better than the others. Jokerit are also missing 2 of their key defencemen which puts more defensive responsibility on Karlsson. And he's not a defensive d-man.
