RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Klefbom has yet to play in North America as he has spent the last two seasons in the Swedish Elite League. He is one of the Oilers' top prospects on defense, a position they are desperate for talent. His offensive talents haven't really shown up yet, but he is projected to be the type of defender that could be a power-play quarterback. Keeper leaguers need to know his name.
Klefbom was the Oilers' second pick (19th overall) in the first round of the 2011 draft. He is a power forward who can skate, but Klefbom will first need some seasoning in the AHL. When he's ready for the big time, he should mesh with the other young Oiler forwards.
