Just goes to show that lack of hockey IQ sometimes is just a lack of maturity.
09/10, FBK J18 and SWE U17 (Klefbom was 16).

The following two seasons he split time between SEL and FBK J18/J20 (except after Christmas 2012 when he secured his position in FBK). I was really disappointed that he couldn't play this season because I do think he is good offensively as well and I thought that this would have been the season to confirm that. I do not think we should expect any offense from him here for the first couple of seasons. He needs to learn the defensive game of the NHL first, and I think he will focus 100% on this to begin with.
