The SHL selected Dakota Jackalopes C Lars Karlsson as its Player of the Week. Karlsson had a strong week, putting up 5 goals and 9 points. His performance helped vault him into the league’s top 10 in both categories.
Karlsson’s most impressive performance came on Wednesday, when he had a hat trick and added two assists in the Jackalopes’ 7-3 win over Hershey. Karlsson and teammate Matt Cherner (1 goal, 4 assists) became the first two players to record five-point games this season.
“Lars has been one of our cornerstones since the beginning,” said Jackalopes coach Harold Engellund. “He’s got a terrific motor, and he’s not afraid to do the dirty work on both ends of the ice. “
