Google translate:

Klasen get the chance in the NHL - is called up

After seven goals and three assists in his first seven games in the league are former farms Södertälje Forwarder Linus Klasen gained a great start to his career in North America. Klasen has made the most goals of all players in the AHL and he is eight points in the league. And now, a well-deserved chance in the NHL.

Named in the night

According to Linus Klasen HockeyExpressen.se has overnight been named to the Nashville Predators. There he becomes teammate of Swedish duo Anders Lindbäck and Patric Hörnqvist.

Injuries open

Nashville currently has both Marcel Goc and Matthew Lombardi on the injury list of forwards and zero based on hemmais when St. Louis Blues won 3-0 on Friday night.

SK74. He still is hurt, and this will give him a rest. Hopefully Klasen doesn't get 4th line minutes though.

He most assuredly will.

Shame that it likely will be SK74, I think he's gotten better with each passing game.

Especially given that it's Dumont and Erat that badly need to be benched right now.

Right now, I'd scratch Erat. Erat is struggling more than any other forward out there. If his back is still giving him problems, it's all the more reason to rest him.

Kostitsyn is definitely playing better and better.

A guy like Klasen should be put on a scoring line right away to see what he is capable of.

That is one thing I do not like about Trotz, he starts everyone on crappy lines with minimal ice time. Klasen is not a fourth liner.

I say give Marty some rest. For all we know his back is still bothering him. I'd like to think there is a physical problem affecting his play. My wife goes nuts every time he starts his ballerina twirling moves with the puck.

He'll play with more offensive minded players, like Erat, SK and/or Dumont he just won't get top minutes.

That translation is actually false, in Swedish it says according to sources to Hockeyexpressen not according to Linus Klasen. Seems to be true nevertheless. He has confirmed it in another paper, Milwaukee coach gave him the call this morning.

He needs to play with SK. He could dish passes to Klasen all day, could be a dangerous third line, imo.

Any word on who the open roster spot comes from? Injury? Demotion?

Erat and Tootoo both missed today's practice as a "maintenance day". Smithson finished the game (prior to Tootoo's ejection) on Legwand's wing and skated there today. My money would be on Erat.

With the depth and how early it is in the season why not just rest all the major minute eaters and suck up a couple of losses?

Has his awareness of others around him improved? I remember several comments to the effect that his stick handling with his head down is going to get him nailed. That's what led to his concussion and ended his preseason camp.

Why was he called up? Was it his production in Milwaukee and the need for more offense in Nashville? Was it injuries? Was it to help with the power play? Despite his goal scoring ability, most thought that he would remain with the Ads to round out the rest of his game.

Yes, Klasen had his head down for a moment on that play in rookie camp, but it was a very dirty hit that targeted his head from the blindside. It is exactly the type of hit the league wants to get rid of, so not all the blame can go to Klasen...most of it was on Clackson.

Every report is that Klasen has been dynamic offensively in Milwaukee and not a liability on defense. Therefore, there is the opportunity to play a scoring line role...Klasen has been the top player not only for the Ads, but arguably in the whole AHL...ergo he gets the call.

He'll probably start on the 4th line with Spaling and Kostitsyn, but in Milwaukee he was skating with Spaling, then Geoffrion and Thuresson and been productive. So I'm not gonna complain!

To clarify, I think we'll see:

Sullivan - O'Reilly - Hornqvist
Smithson - Legwand - Ward
Dumont - Wilson - Tootoo/Erat
Klasen - Spaling - Kostitsyn

I'm gonna make a prediction. Tootoo sits tomorrow night with Klasen skating next to Legwand and Ward. Both Ward and Legwand have been getting good scoring opps with Tootoo so imagine what they can do with a truly gifted sniper. Erat has also been wearing the "A" since Suter has been out so I suspect he doesn't sit unless his back is really troubling him.
