Tonight’s Sharks vs Stars game will feature two of the most high-profile and exciting blueline talents in the NHL as Erik Karlsson and John Klingberg will go head-to-head. Karlsson still hasn’t scored in his first season as a Shark, but don’t let that fool you into thinking his level of play has dropped off. There are still very few defense,em, if any, who can match his offensive contributions, though Klingberg is one of few who can at least be in the conversation.
Karlsson is a 2-time Norris winner and Klingberg was 6th in Norris voting last season, so having a chance to see them both compete at the same time is going to be a treat for anyone tuning in to the game. Who knows? Maybe tonight is the night Karlsson finally gets his first goal in teal and black.
