March, 2013 - Karlsson still needs to bulk up and will continue to play in the SEL for 2013-14. I wouldn't be shocked if he flirted with a point-per-game for HV71 next season...Showing steady improvement. - Dobber
April, 2012- Most years when looking out of the first round and early second round there are few forwards with high offensive upside. Sweden’s William Karlsson has the tools to beat that expectation. Karlsson has nifty hands, good offensive instincts and can perform game-changing moves at high speeds on occasion. He is also a decent defensive player, making him an intriguing all-round prospect. The main knock on Karlsson as a fantasy option is that he will take time to crack the Anaheim roster and gain a meaningful role. Size is a smaller issue for Karlsson, who is a little light. Karlsson has put up great numbers in Sweden in the Allsvenskan, Sweden’s second league below the Elitserien. Karlsson will test stronger competition next season with HV71 of the Elitserien where he is signed through 2013-2014. Patience is the key to Karlsson and he could pay big dividends eventually.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
Good upside. Will need time and good results against better competition to develop further.
