LINUS KLASEN  Sweden

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 276015

BIRTHYEAR 1986-02-19 BIRTHPLACEStockholm, SWE
AGE 30 NATION Sweden
POSITION LW/RW SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 175 cm / 5'9" WEIGHT 80 kg / 176 lbs
YOUTH TEAM Huddinge IK CONTRACT 17/18
SOCIAL Klasen scores a beautiful Zorro goal 


Klasen is a winger with superb offensive instincts and vision. Excels tremendously on the powerplay with his top-notch passing and playmaking ability. Likes to hang onto the puck for long stretches while skating around in the offensive zone. Excellent in penalty-shot and shootout situations, where he can deke as well as snipe. Can beat opponents one on one with his outstanding stickhandling skills.
Of course, his lack of size can be a problem, as he can be pushed around at times. Isn't very good without the puck in general. Sometimes displays a poor attitude.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)
