An Encouraging Start for Oscar Klefbom (European Prospects Update)

The Oilers top prospects in Europe are off to great starts. Nail Yakupov has scored 3 goals in 4 games in the KHL. And Oscar Klefbom is leading the SEL in plus/minus. Of the two, I’m most encouraged by Klefbom’s play. Most people expected Yakupov to play well, but Klefbom’s progression this season suggests he might be ready to play an important role for the 2013-14 Oilers.

Nail Yakupov (RW) – Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk
4 GP / 3 G / 0 A / 3 PTS / -1 / 2 PIM

Oscar Klefbom (D) – Farjestads BK
10 GP / 0 G / 3 A / 3 PTS / +7 / 2 PIM

Erik Gustufsson (D) – Djurgardon
7 GP / 1 G / 1 A / 2 PTS / +4 / 2 PIM

Samu Perhonen (G) – JYP-Akatemia
3 GP / 2.28 GAA / .932 SV%

Frans Tuhoimaa (G) – Jokereit / Kiekko-Vantaa
