I think that's the best bet for both sides. With Petry and Schultz both expected to get a decent amount of time, bringing in another young guy is dangerous.
The SEL is equivalent to the AHL in my mind, so might as well let Klefbom play in a league he is familiar with and has committments to.
Interesting that the article also suggest he was offered playing time in the NHL. Again, I find that extraordinarily hard to believe. Wish it would have said in the article whether he was planning on attending training camp or not. Not sure if it conflicts with the start of his team's regular season in Sweden.
