Carl Hagelin holds the record for the fastest skater lap with 13.218, and in the same year Greening was clocked at 13.303.

Why do I bring up Greening? Because he self-admittingly said that Karlsson was much faster than him, from blue-line to blue-line (no cornering).

Most foot races in hockey are from point a to b, which benefits Karlsson heavily.

Here's another report that shares the opinion:
