Klingberg's NHL campaign ended on a sour note when the Stars were eliminated by the Blues in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday, but he'll now get the opportunity to help his native Sweden compete for gold at the World Championship. The 26-year-old blueliner's fantasy value declined a bit in 2018-19 due to the emergence of Miro Heiskanen, but he'll remain a solid secondary option in most formats next season.

Klingberg couldn't have picked a better time for his second career postseason goal, beating Predators goalie Pekka Rinne glove side from the left faceoff dot.

Klingberg was a force Wednesday, finishing with three assists in a 5-1 win over Nashville in Game 4.
Two of Klingberg's three assists came while the Stars enjoyed a man advantage, as he finished Wednesday's win having logged a game-high 5:10 of power-play ice time. The trio of helpers gives the Stars' blueliner five assists through four games.
Klingberg earned an assist and fired two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Predators in Game 3.
Klingberg has two helpers and seven shots in the series so far, while adding four blocked shots.

Klingberg had four assists over his last four regular season games and kept the offense going by setting up Miro Heiskanen's second goal of the game.

Klingberg posted a pair of assists, including one with the man advantage, in a 6-2 victory against the Flyers on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old defenseman only has one goal in the last 14 games, but he has eight assists during that stretch. For most of this season, though, Klingberg has had the opposite problem -- scoring but not posting enough assists. He has 10 goals and 34 assists in 62 games this season. Last year, he posted eight goals with a career-high 59 helpers over 82 contests.
Klingberg recorded an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Canucks.
The assist gives Klingberg 42 points in 61 appearances this season, his lowest output since bursting onto the scene with 40 points in his rookie year of 2014-15. A hand injury cost him 18 games in the fall, and he's earned a respectable 29 points in 45 outings since returning.
Klingberg scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Panthers.
Klingberg has racked up three goals and five assists in nine games in March, and he's put his name on the scoresheet in four of the last five games. With 39 points in 55 games this season, Klingberg hasn't come close to matching the 67 points from 2017-18, so hopefully owners counting on the scoring of a No. 1 blueliner have been able to supplement that production elsewhere.
Klingberg scored the lone goal in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Rangers.
Klingberg's second-period snipe was the only offense apparent in this one. Dallas' top-pairing defender also fired four shots on goal and recorded a blocked shot as well in the winning effort.

Klingberg missed Monday's practice with an illness but is expected to suit up Tuesday against the Rangers, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
While it appears this illness won't cost Klingberg any game action, it's still best to check in on his status prior to puck drop Tuesday. After all, it's better to be safe than sorry with a guy who's produced 34 points in just 47 appearances from the blue line this season.
Klingberg scored what would be the game-winning goal and added a pair of helpers in a 4-1 win over the Blues on Saturday.
Klingberg and forward Jamie Benn did most of the damage to Blues goalie Jordan Binnington in this contest, with Benn providing a hat trick to lead the way.

Klingberg fired off five shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
The five shots were a team-high output, as the Stars spent more time in the defensive end trying to stall the Golden Knights' attack. Klingberg also took an ugly minus-3 rating in the game, pushing him under even for the season. Klingberg has 30 points in 46 games this year, with three assists in his last five contests, but he has taken a step back from the career-high 67 points he recorded last season.

Klingberg notched two assists, both on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Jets.
The blueliner is enjoying a marvelous January so far, racking up a goal and 10 points through nine games, with half those points (including the goal) coming with the man advantage.
