Lanky Swede up from St. John's for energy

  • Print

CARL Klingberg is getting a second chance to make a good first impression.

The Jets have called up the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Swedish winger from the St. John's IceCaps and he could be in action against the Coyotes tonight.

Both Nik Antropov, who blocked a shot in the third period of Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators, and Eric Fehr were absent from Wednesday practice and have been listed as day-to-day.

That prompted the call to St. John's for Klingberg, who has nine goals and seven assists in 20 AHL games this season. Klingberg showed some flashes early in Jets' training camp before being assigned to The Rock.

"If he played in the game he'd be an energy fourth-line guy. We'd just want him to be dependable," said Jets head coach Claude Noel. "He's been dependable. He's provided more offence than I believe that he had here. But he's shown he's around the net to get some offensive play in the American League. I wouldn't really be looking for offence from him, just some energy and be dependable.

"How can he impact the game? He would do that through his skating and checking and just making smart decisions."

Defenceman Ron Hainsey also remains day-to-day after returning to the lineup last week after a lengthy layoff but re-aggravating his injury.
