2016-17

2015-16

The Sharks signed Karlsson out of Sweden last offseason, and he burst onto the scene last year as a 24-year-old rookie, enjoying goood health and a regular role -- sometimes even a premier role -- after being called up from AHL Worcester in the first half of December. He's more of a complementary scorer than a potential star, but Karlsson should be in line to enjoy a full season with the Sharks, and he could very well spend some of that time skating top-six minutes with power-play time. There's value to be had in deeper leagues here, but in more standard formats, there are higher-upside youngsters to pursue.
