Last season, Erik Karlsson burst into the mainstream as one of the league’s top offensive defensemen. This year the 21-year-old has taken his defensive game to another level and is now considered one of the NHL’s top blueliners at both ends of the rink. 

As part of the Feb. 13, 2012 THN cover story, on newsstands and online now, THN’s Ken Campbell sat down with the Swedish-born defender to discuss a plethora of topics. In the first of our three-part interview Karlsson talks about his roots, his relationship with Daniel Alfredsson and much more. Check out Part 2 of the interview and Part 3
