Karlsson began his professional career with his hometown team Växjö Lakers HC of Sweden’s Elitserien (SEL) in 2010–11. After two seasons with Växjö, he moved to play for Skellefteå AIK during the 2012–13 season. During this season, he caught the attention of NHL scouts and was drafted into the league in 2013.
He made his debut with Anaheim in 2014, but was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for the 2016–17 season.
