Carl Klingberg has signed a contract with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL.
Klingberg announced the news via his Twitter account on Sunday morning. The 24-year-old was always an intriguing talent because of his size (6'3, 200 pounds) and skill level, but he was never able to stick on an NHL roster. He was a second round pick of the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He scored one goal and added four penalty minutes in 12 career NHL games. Klingberg played two games with the Jets in 2014-15 before being traded to the New York Rangers for Lee Stempniak. Sun, Jun 21, 2015 11:33:00 AM

The New York Rangers acquired Carl Klingberg from the Winnipeg Jets for Lee Stempniak.

Klingberg was Atlanta's second round pick 2009 and his rights were transferred over when the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg. Many thought Klingberg has good upside but he has been a disappointment in his NHL career so far. The 24-year-old has played in just five NHL games in the last two seasons. The Rangers made this deal to clear some money off the cap after acquiring Keith Yandle earlier today.

Carl Klingberg made his second appearance of the season in Tuesday's win over Dallas.

He got to play against his brother John Klingberg, who plays defense on the Stars, for the first time in the NHL. "It was amazing," Carl said after the game. "Great experience. He's such a skilled D and a big part of their team. It's tough to measure performances out there, but I think I did all right. I got a piece of him a few times." The Jets forward logged just 3:46 of ice time after he played 2:51 in his season debut last Saturday.

He will play Monday because Dustin Byfuglien (upper body) is done for the rest of the season. "My job is to skate hard, be smart out there, and I think it's gonna be good," Klingberg said. "It's exciting, real exciting. It's a long time since I last played (in the NHL), so it's gonna be a lot of fun." He doesn't have a point in seven career NHL appearances.

The Winnipeg Jets have called up Carl Klingberg from the minors.

He has tallied nine goals and added seven assists in 20 games with the AHL's St. John's IceCaps this season. Klingberg might make his Jets debut on Thursday night when Phoenix visits with Nik Antropov and Eric Fehr battling injuries. He has one game of NHL experience in his career and it came with the Altanta Thrashers in 2010-11. Coach Claude Noel plans to use him in a fourth-line, energy role if he plays though, so he likely won't have much to offer from a fantasy perspective.
