Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, also known as JFK, is one of the Bruins top prospects. The 6’1, 184 pound Swede played his college hockey at Boston University with current Bruin Charlie McAvoy. While at Boston University, Forsbacka-Karlsson made a name for himself scoring 24 goals and recording 39 assists for 63 points in 78 games played. JFK was an assistant captain at BU during the 2016-17 season. JFK was highly impressive and only played two seasons at BU before moving on to play for the Boston Bruins AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
The Providence Bruins season has been full of ups and downs so far, but that hasn’t stopped Forsbacka-Karlsson. In 11 games played so far, he’s scored 3 goals and recorded 4 assists for 7 points and is a +4. JFK’s biggest asset is that he’s a terrific playmaker. He’s a great two-way player who is a natural at producing offensive chances.
Here, Forsbacka-Karlsson is able to set himself up right in front of the net to score for the Providence Bruins.
Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson is an elite talent and will most likely get a spot on the 2018-2019 Boston Bruins roster. For now you can watch him light it up down at The Dunk in Providence, RI… you won’t be disappointed.
