April 15, 2017 Klefbom exited Friday's Game 2 of the Oilers' opening-round playoff series with San Jose in the third period with a lower-body injury. The defenseman was not on the ice for Saturday's practice.

April 7, 2017 Klefbom played a key role in the Oilers' comeback win at San Jose on Thursday by coming through with a career-high four assists. Klefbom already had fantasy value due to his ability to generate goals from the defense position, and he's now up to 36 points during a breakout 2016-17 campaign. The 23-year-old should be a player worth targeting in next year's draft.
Feb. 22, 2017 Klefbom scored his 11th goal Wednesday against Florida. He's scored three times and contributed three assists in his last five games.
Feb. 17, 2017 Klefbom had his 10th goal in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Flyers. Klefbom has two goals and two assists over his last two games.

Dec. 12, 2015 Klefbom's broken finger is healed, but he now has a leg infection. Klefbom's return date is unclear.
Nov. 15, 2015 Klefbom had two assists in a 4-3 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday night. It was the second career multipoint game for Klefbom, who leads Edmonton's defensemen with three goals and 10 points.
Nov. 7, 2015 Klefbom had a goal Friday. The defenseman has four points in the last six games.
Sept. 20, 2015 The Oilers have signed Klefbom to a seven-year extension. The 22-year-old had two goals and 18 points over 60 games in his first full NHL season of 2014-15, ranking second among Edmonton defensemen in points and time on ice (21:59).
Dec. 14, 2014 Klefbom didn't play Sunday due to a swollen foot. He's day to day.

2018-03-22 analysis Klefbom was only able to draw into 66 games this season after playing out the entire schedule in 2016-17. He finished with 21 points -- which was 17 fewer than the previous campaign -- but he was well on his way to establishing a new career high in blocked shots with 136 of those.

After logging 12 goals and 38 points -- including three goals and 16 points on the power play -- last season, Klefbom saw his production dip to just five goals and 21 points in 66 games this season.

2018-03-15 analysis The Swedish defender missed the past two contests after undergoing a "minor procedure" and Wednesday could be one of the last games he plays in 2017-18 with head coach Todd McLellan announcing that Klefbom will undergo another procedure as soon as next week. Apparently, no further damage can be done by playing which provides an explanation for this unique situation. Klefbom has produced four goals Klefbom had missed the previous two games for Edmonton with an undisclosed issue. Before that, he had been playing well, notching two points and 14 shots on net in three contests. The Swede has only managed five goals this season, thanks in part to a 2.1 shooting percentage, but at least his recent play is encouraging.
2018-03-15 update Klefbom (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's tilt against San Jose. Klefbom lit the lamp and tallied an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Sharks on Wednesday.

2018-03-10 analysis We're waiting for more details on Klefbom, who has 19 points (four goals, 15 assists) working against a minus-10 rating through 63 games this campaign.

2018-01-28 analysis Those aren't good numbers, but it's not like Klefbom was playing great hockey before the injury. After having 12 goals and 26 assists last season, the Swede only has three goals and eight helpers in 45 games this year. The Oilers have been disappointing, and Klefbom has certainly been a part of that.
2018-01-28 update Klefbom has two points, both assists, in 12 games since returning from an injury.
2017-12-29 analysis Klefbom has missed the Oilers' last three games while recovering from several nagging injuries, but the 24-year-old blueliner appears to be back to 100 percent ahead of Friday's matchup with Chicago. The left-handed Swede has had a disappointing start to the campaign, notching nine points (three goals, six assists) in 33 games after totaling 38 points (12 goals, 26 assists) in 82 contests a season

2017-12-27 analysis Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the news effectively rules Klefbom out versus Winnipeg on Wednesday. Prior to getting hurt, the defenseman has tallied a mere nine points in 33 games and appears unlikely to repeat his 2016-17 breakout performance (12 goals and 26 assists). Once activated off injured reserve, Klefbom will likely bounce Brandon Davison or Adam Larsson from the lineup.

2017-12-19 analysis Klefbom has been dealing with a few nagging injuries of late, so a move to IR will allow him to fully recover while also making room for Andrej Sekera (knee), who is expected to be activated from the injured list soon, on the roster. The Oilers should release a more clear-cut timetable for Klefbom's return to game action once he's able to resume practicing with his teammates.

2017-12-12 analysis Klefbom's three goals and five assists through 29 games aren't wildly impressive, but he's getting opportunities. He leads the team in average ice time and his 88 shots on the year are the eighth-most among NHL defensemen. There's more potential for upside with him than his point total suggests.

However, it'll be worth checking back Sunday just to make sure that's indeed the case.

2017-11-24 analysis Cam Talbot also isn't starting against Buffalo due to the flu, so it seems like something is going around the Edmonton locker room.

2017-11-15 analysis After scoring a career-high 12 goals last season, Klefbom has had a somewhat slow start to the 2017-18 season. His six points through 18 contests aren't awful, but the 24-year-old is playing on the top power-play unit and logging heavy minutes at even strength. The talent is there for him to be a very valuable blueliner, so now that the Oilers appear to have gotten the offense going, look for Klef

2017-11-11 analysis The Swedish defenseman has had a difficult start to the season with just one goal and four points -- and a minus-6 rating -- in the first 16 games. The first-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft had 38 points a year ago, so a turnaround is certainly likely, but if he struggles to produce offensively the door will open for Andrej Sekera (knee) to eat into Klefbom's power-play time once he gets

He emerged last year with career-high marks in goals (12), assists (26), points (38), plus/minus (plus-7), power-play points (16), and shots (201). He's not Erik Karlsson, but he will be given the opportunity to build on last season's success.
