I'm glad that isn't the case, I am really looking forward to seeing him in training camp next Sept.
I was re-watching the Sweden-Russia Gold Medal match yesterday (that's all the NHL network shows nowadays, WJC games) and Klefbom was ridiculously good in that game.
I almost forgot how well he skates for a big guy and he showed a lot of offensive flair which seems to be an underrated part of his game, he also got really physical with Kuznetsov a few times and completely shut down the Kuz-Yak line of course with the help of Brodin. It got me all excited about his future here and also made me sad thinking that he lost a critical year of development this year due to injury, he seemed primed to take a huge step forward. Lets hope that it doesn't set him back.
