The SHL selected Dakota Rapids C Lars Karlsson as its Player of the Week. Karlsson recorded 5 goals and 8 points on the week, leading the way as the Rapids went 5-1-0 on the week to keep pace in the fiercely competitive Western division.
Karlsson has provided excellent two-way play for the Rapids this season, captaining a second line that has been the SHLs most productive in terms of points.
“Lars would be a first-line center on a lot of teams,” said Rapids LW “Flyin’ Ryan” Airston. “The fact that we have him on the second line says a lot about our depth.”
