RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Karlsson played a full NHL schedule for the first time in his young career last year and showed flashes of potential, but the 23-year-old still only managed 20 points while skating on the third and fourth lines for a poor Columbus team. The Jackets' lack of depth up the middle could allow him to sneak into a larger role at some point should injuries strike, and he could be productive if given a chance, but he mostly appears to be little more than an afterthought in a system flush with top prospects pushing their way toward the NHL.

2014-15

The 21-year-old Karlsson will compete for the Ducks' third-line center job in training camp against fellow Swede Rickard Rakell. Should he fail to win the gig, a full season at AHL Norfolk likely awaits for Karlsson.
