2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

After busting into the NHL as an offensive juggernaut from the back end in his rookie year, Klingberg’s used his first full season to cement his status as one of the league’s elite blueliners with a 58-point campaign, good for fifth at his position. But even though he’s a power-play force, having racked up 22 points in those situations, Klingberg’s anything but a liability on his own end, as he posted a matching plus-22 rating. Considering the Stars were below average in both defense and goaltending, that accomplishment highlights just how impressive the Swede’s two-way game is – and just how great life can be when you get to feed the puck to superstars Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. With six years left on the contract extension he signed in April of 2015, he’ll be providing Dallas (and fantasy owners) with great value from the blue line into the next decade.

2015-16

Precious few rookie defensemen in the last couple decades -- and especially those without much of a draft pedigree -- have exploded onto the scene with a force approaching that of Klingberg's arrival in the NHL last season. After only 13 career games at the AHL level, the Swedish defenseman came up to Dallas and dominated almost from the word go, quickly growing into a clutch performer and an integral weapon on the Stars' power play. That's the role he'll occupy this year, and with a full 82-game slate, he should be able to improve on last seasons's numbers. While it'll be tough for him to maintain that very high 11.2 shooting percentage, Klingberg can reasonably be expected to increase the number of pucks he launches on goal this season, giving him a legitimate shot at double-digit markers again.
