A smooth-skating blueliner with plenty of offensive potential, Klubertanz also has a fiesty attitude. Despite his average size, he doesn't back down and plays with a chip on his shoulder. His greatest attribute is his puckmoving skills. He also sees the ice extremely well and is excellent at reading the play. His time in the college system should be devoted to developing his potential further as well as improving his defensive play. He also needs to get stronger to continue to play his style.
A third round draft choice in 2004 and a wizard at moving the puck, Klubertanz is still very much a project. He has plenty of offensive potential and could be a future powerplay quarterback if all goes well. His size may hold him back from being a top pairing blueliner, but his drive and hard work could ensure that he does get a regular roster spot.
This is clearly swedens best hockey reporter, I don't know if he ever has been wrong. This should be very very likely to happen.
Of what I saw from Djurgarden he played really well, maybe their best defenseman. He is a solid defenseman with pretty good upside, plays hard despite his lack of size. He has a good first pass and his skating is about average. 5th in scoring for defenseman in SEL with his 12+19=31p in 55G, had 5p more than Engqvist in the same amount of games played. Also love that he is right-handed
Should be a very good depth signing for Hamilton with a small chance of playing in Montreal if they get som injuries.
The guy doing the interview sounds like he ripped a few bong hits beforehand!
Was gonna make the exact same comment, but lo and behold, you beat me to it.
Anyhoo, one of those signings that's impossible to get excited about, but he seems to be a decent player who's well aware of his strengths, and what weaknesses he needs to address. Who knows how long he'll be willing to stick around in Hamilton though.
