Vancouver Canucks prospect Linus Karlsson has a new home in the Allsvenskan.

The 20-year-old forward will join BIK Karlskoga and has already played in one game, scoring two assists.

Karlsson last played for Karlskrona HK in the Allsvenskan league, where he scored 42 points in 89 games. This year he had notched eight goals and 14 assists in 36 games.

The 6’1″, 179 lb. native of Eksjö, Sweden, was originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks, but the Canucks acquired his right in a Feb. 2019 deal for F Jonathan Dahlen.

Dahlen returned to Allsvenskan this season on a loan with Timra IK where he has scored 54 points in 37 games.
