Observations

July 2017 – Karlstrom played 45 games in the Allsvenskan league, and showed progress in playing against higher competition. He tallied 24 points in those games and looks to be progressing nicely. It sounds like he’ll play next year in the Swedish Hockey League, which is the highest level of competition in Sweden, for the Linkoping HC. It’s nice to see him progressing to more skilled leagues. Karlstrom is likely one more year away from North America. Matt Kowalski

June 2016 – With their 3rd-round-pick in the 2016 draft, the Stars drafted another power forward in Karlstrom. He fits the Stars’ preferences – he has a large frame, is a great skater, and possesses an aggressive tendency. Frederick steadily produced points at the lower junior leagues in Europe, but not nearly as well in the elite. It will be interesting to see how he deals with the more skilled competition and where his development is after he sees it for a longer period of time. He is staying in Europe next year to play in the AIK SuperElite junior league. The Stars will give him time to fill out his frame. This one feels like a longer term project for the Stars. – Matt Kowalski
