Not to say I'm an SEL ice time expert, but his 2 points in 33 games would indicate to me that something wasn't quite right.
Yeah, it is very tough for young Swedish D to get points if they aren't playing top-pairing minutes. Hell even if they get more ice time, the points are hard to come by.
Klefbom averaged 13:43 of ice time last year. Jonas Brodin averaged 17:27, so Klefbom's role will increase. Even with the higher ice time, Brodin only had 8 points himself in 49 games.
