Klingberg dished out two helpers -- one on the power-play -- in Thursday's 4-2 win over Vancouver. Klingberg's second assist resulted in Tyler Seguin's power-play game-wnner 9:07 into the third period. The Swedish blueliner also finished with a plus-3 rating to draw even over the past four games, which is remarkable, considering his team was outscored by a 17-4 spread over the previous three. Of Klingberg's 140 points through 209 career appearances, 49 have come with the extra man.
Klingberg scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over the Panthers on Saturday. The 24-year-old now has a five-game point streak. During that stretch, he has three goals and seven points. With Saturday's goal, Klingberg tied a career-high 11 goals. He also has 39 points and an even rating. For leagues with blocks and time on ice, Klingberg has also set career-highs in those categories.
Klingberg posted a goal and an assist, as well as two shots and a plus-1 rating in Sunday's loss to the Bruins. Despite his point pace being slower than last year, Klingberg is still producing. With Sunday's goal, he has tied last season's total of 10 goals in 16 fewer games. However, his point pace has dropped from .76 points per game to .58. Also concerning is the drop in his shot rate from 2.25 shots per game last year to 1.67 this season.
Klingberg picked up a power-play goal on a season-high five shots as well as an assist in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Jets. As disappointing a campaign as 2016-17 has been for the Swedish blueliner, he's actually on pace to set a new career mark in goals (he has eight, while his personal high is 11) ; however, the assists have been a different story. Nonetheless, Klingberg's current pace has him on track to finish right around 50 points, which is hard production to complain about from your fantasy blue line.
Klingberg had an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's win over Toronto. The dynamic defender has assists in back-to-back games, but he's still not the dangerous offensive threat we saw last year. In those two games, he's only recorded one shot despite playing more than 44 minutes in those contests. Those are also the only two points he has over the last seven games.
