Looks like John Klingberg is going to join Skellefteå. Jokerit let him go today saying he's going back to Sweden, and apparently Swedish sources have said his team will be Skellefteå.
John was horrible this year but Jokerit still would have wanted to keep him till next year but John wanted to get back home so they decided to let him go right away. In his rookie year SM-Liiga was just too physical and high level for him.
And two 1st-year seniors. ( Burström, Styrman (inj) ). Could be costly in Playoffs.
Would be nice to see him getting the chance from the beginning like Rundblad did with large minutes. And if it doesn't pay off after some games let him play for J20 and get a Thomson-hell summer to build himself up a bit and come back next year.
