Calle Jarnkrok has played well since being bumped up to a line with Craig Smith and Colin Wilson.
"I think that since Calle has been up there on that line he provides a real sense of responsibility," coach Peter Laviolette said. "He's a real smart two-way player and I think he has the ability to play good defense but also has the skill to provide good offense." Jarnkrok has contributed one goal and four assists in his past seven outings. Dec 1 - 2:15 PM

Calle Jarnkrok is getting faceoff tips from teammate Paul Gaustad, in addition to watching plenty of video.

The lessons might be paying off as he has topped 70 percent on his draws in his past two games and he won 60 percent of his faceoffs last Tuesday versus Edmonton. "I've always been a centerman so I have always taken faceoffs," said Jarnkrok. "The guys are stronger here and better here in this league so I have to keep working and getting better every day." He'll need to start working on his offense next. Jarnkrok has posted one assist and 16 shots in 13 games this campaign.

"He's got quick hands and he seems to have a little confidence right now, so we took a gamble throwing him in there (in the shootout). He made a nice move." Jarnkrok has only one shot on goal so far, but he has been productive and as he gains more confidence the scoring chances should come.
