Karlsson recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes. Karlsson played the middleman between Jonathan Marchessault and goal-scorer Reilly Smith for the game-tying tally at 4:11 of the third period. The assist was Karlsson's second point in three games -- the Swede has added seven shots on net and a plus-3 rating this season.
Karlsson scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Ducks. Karlsson's goal came with Marc-Andre Fleury on the bench for an extra attacker. The tally at 18:38 of the third period broke up John Gibson's shutout bid for the Ducks, and Max Pacioretty would finish the comeback in overtime. Karlsson's first point of the year was clutch -- he's added six shots and a plus-2 rating through two contests. An all-situations center, Karlsson can help fantasy squads in many ways.
Karlsson notched an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 3. Karlsson set up Alex Tuch for the equalizer at 12:46 of the third period, which ultimately forced overtime. The assist gave Karlsson points in consecutive outings after he weathered a four-game drought. The Swede has 10 points (four goals, six helpers) with 48 shots and 24 hits in 18 contests.
Karlsson scored a power-play goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win versus Dallas in Game 2. He also won six of nine faceoffs (66.7 percent). Karlsson beat Dallas goalie Anton Khudobin five-hole with a wrister from the left faceoff circle, giving the Golden Knights a 2-0 lead midway through the second period. It was Karlsson's fourth goal of the playoffs and just his second in the past 11 games. The former 43-goal man has a history of scoring in bunches, so perhaps Tuesday's tally will ignite a hot streak for the 27-year-old.
Karlsson scored a goal on five shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Canucks in Game 4. Karlsson's goal completed a stretch of three scores in 5:37 during the third period for Vegas. It's the third goal of the playoffs for the Swede, who has added five helpers, 34 shots on goal and a plus-5 rating through 12 games. Playing in a top-six role for a potent Vegas offense makes Karlsson a productive playmaker for DFS managers to consider.
