Now I'm certainly not projecting Gostisbehere to Karlsson, but they have a lot of similarities. It's hard not to get excited about his future.
Karlsson was also in the SEL by the time he was 17 and identified by scouts as one of the top 1990-born players by the time he was 18. He was already becoming a productive NHLer by the time he was Gostisbehere's age. So they might not be as similar as they seem to you.
