RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
This 20-year old is one of the top prospects in the Oilers system. He has played the past several seasons in Sweden and will make his North American debut in the AHL this year. He has everything you could want in a d-man -- size, shot and vision, and is good in both ends of the ice. The Oilers may be weak on defense, but Klefbom could be a big part of the answer to their problems as soon as 2014-15.
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.
