Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Posts Elite Season

News: Erik Karlsson finished the season with 20 goals and 54 assists in 82 games.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson was also minus-15 for the year, but proved that he's back to being the top fantasy defenseman in the league after suffering an Achilles injury in 2013. His 54 assists were good for seventh among all skaters, and his 74 points were by far the most of any defenseman -- Duncan Keith finished second with 61.

Sens' Karlsson: 53rd Assist Saturday Night

News: Erik Karlsson, who has admitted he's still not 100 percent a year after his Achilles tendon surgery, picked up his 53rd assist of the season in Saturday's win over Toronto. He sits seventh in assists in the NHL.
Analysis: It's pretty remarkable that a guy who says he isn't 100 percent still leads all defenders with 73 points. We can't wait to see what he can do next year after a summer to rest and break up some of the that scar tissue.

Senators' Karlsson Tallies Three Points

News: Erik Karlsson scored his 20th goal of the season and added two assists against the Lightning on Monday. He was also plus-3, had four PIM and put four shots on goal.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson has been on a tear, as he now has a seven-game point streak, giving him 68 points on the season. The only negative is that, even with this plus-3, he's still minus-17 on the season.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson On Six-Game Streak

News: Erik Karlsson extended his point streak to six games and eight points (two goals, six assists) when he notched his 19th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: His 65 points put him on the edge of the top-20 scorers list and are at least 10 more than his nearest blue line competitor. And to think he's still only 23. Use with confidence.

News: Erik Karlsson pocketed a goal and an assist in Thursday's game against the Bolts.
Analysis: His team may be falling further out of the Eastern Conference playoff race, but Erik Karlsson has heated up offensively in spite of the Sens' collective struggles. He's notched a point five consecutive games, and has nine in the team's 10 games since the Olympics.

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal in Friday's semifinal win over Finland.

Sens' Karlsson Lights Lamp Twice For Sweden

News: Erik Karlsson scored two of Sweden's four goals in Wednesday's defeat of the Czech Republic in the Olympic opener.
Analysis: Former Senators teammate Daniel Alfredsson was initially credited with the game's first goal after he appeared to deflect Erik Karlsson's shot from the point into the net, but it was changed after a review indicated otherwise. Karlsson's second score came on the power play and left no room for dispute, giving the Swedes an insurmountable 4-0 lead.

Erik Karlsson

Senators' Karlsson Sits Out Practice Friday

News: Erik Karlsson did not take part in Friday's practice, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: The reason for Erik Karlsson's absence was not provided, so it's possible he was simply given the day off. Expect an update on Karlsson's status if any doubt appears regarding his status for Saturday's game against the Bruins.

Erik Karlsson, D, OTT

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Scores For Second Straight Game

News: Erik Karlsson scored his 15th goal of the season in Thursday's win over Buffalo. He has now scored in back-to-back games.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson continues to dominate offensively, leading the team with 54 points in 58 games. He has now scored three times in his past five games, giving him 15 goals on the season. Karlsson is a disappointing minus-12 on the year, but has gone plus-3 in his past three games, a sign that his defensive play may be trending upwards.

Erik Karlsson

Two-Point Night For Sens' Karlsson

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal and collected an assist in Tuesday's shootout victory over St. Louis.
Analysis: The points were his first in three February games. Erik Karlsson remains the elite of the elite on the blue line, as he hasn't gone more than two consecutive games without a point all year long.

Sens' Karlsson Contributes Goal, Assist

News: Erik Karlsson scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Thursday's shootout loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: The defenseman has collected four multi-point games since the turn of the calendar, contributing to an 11-point January in just nine contests thus far. Now, if only he could resurrect that minus-12 rating.

Erik Karlsson, D, OTT Just Another Big Night For Sens' Karlsson

Erik Karlsson

Just Another Big Night For Sens' Karlsson

News: Erik Karlsson ripped off three points -- a goal and two assists -- in Thursday's overtime loss to Montreal.
Analysis: Though he factored into three even-strength goals, Erik Karlsson was on the ice for a trio of Montreal goals, leaving him with an even plus-minus for the night and highlighting why he's gone minus-11 on the year despite totaling 46 points thus far. Nonetheless, it's tough for fantasy owners to complain, given that Karlsson has three multi-point efforts in his last four games and a total of eight points in his last five contests.

Erik Karlsson

Karlsson Contributes Two Helpers For Sens

News: Erik Karlsson assisted on two of the Senators' three goals in Tuesday's shutout win over Minnesota.
Analysis: With five helpers in his last four games, Erik Karlsson keeps plugging along, though he's been stuck on 10 goals for the year since before Christmas.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Posts Two Assists In Loss

News: Erik Karlsson recorded two assists in Wednesday's OT loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson is producing at a high rate again this season, with a current line of 10/31/41 through 45 games. His 31 assists are currently good for seventh in the league among all skaters, and he should remain an elite fantasy defenseman moving forward.

Erik Karlsson

Senators' Karlsson Tallies Three Points

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal and added two helpers against the Penguins on Monday.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson has 37 points in 39 games, which is expected from him at this point. He also has seven points in his last five games.

Sens' Karlsson Extends Streak In Loss

News: Erik Karlsson had an assist, but registered a minus-2 and no shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Florida.
Analysis: While the fourth year blueliner has a goal and two assists during his current three game point streak, the lack of shots come on a night when Erik Karlsson reunited with defensive partner Marc Methot. Either way, we won't look too much into the donut for SOG or the minus-2 rating and assume the Swede is well on his way to closing out December (two goals, four assists, minus-4) strong.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Getting Partner Back

News: Erik Karlsson will get his regular defensive partner, Marc Methot, back Thursday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson was paired with rookie Cody Ceci Wednesday night against the Devils, as Methot was a surprise healthy scratch. Karlsson still managed two assists in that game, but finished with a minus-2 rating as well. Head coach Paul MacLean is hoping Methot's reinsertion in the lineup will help Karlsson defensively. Karlsson has nine goals and 24 assists in 36 games this season, and looks likely to lead all defensemen in points again for 2013-14.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Adds Two More Assists

News: Erik Karlsson notched two more assists Wednesday against the Capitals.
Analysis: With 26 points on the season, Erik Karlsson has proven he is still deserving of his status as the most productive defenseman in the league, even after coming off a nasty Achilles' injury. One thing to keep an eye on is his high amount of ice time, as he skated nearly 30 minutes again Wednesday. His 27:51 TOI per game ranks second to only Ryan Suter of the Wild, so it will be interesting to see if his body can hold up for the whole season at this pace.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Seeing Heavy Minutes

News: Erik Karlsson continues to see heavy ice time, logging more than 30 minutes in each of the Sens' back-to-back set against the Red Wings and Hurricanes on Saturday and Sunday.
Analysis: Through 24 games this season, Erik Karlsson is averaging a career-high 27:48 on the ice. With 24 points in 24 games, he's delivering points at an elite clip, but is currently just minus-2 for the season. It's questionable whether he can sustain skating 30-plus minutes a night all season, but his 27:09 average during the lockout-shortened campaign a season ago didn't seem to have any overwhelmingly damaging effects.

Erik Karlsson

Two-Goal Game For Sens' Karlsson

News: Erik Karlsson scored a pair of goals on seven shots, went plus-3 and added on two penalty minutes in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson's binging right now, having recorded points in five straight games -- four of them multi-point efforts. He's even flipped his plus-minus to the positive side of the ledger. If you own him, enjoy.

Erik Karlsson

Senators' Karlsson Tallies Two Points

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal and added an assist Sunday against the Senators. He also played a whopping 32:03 and had eight shots on goal.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson has seven points in his last four games, and 15 points in 14 total games. He remains an excellent offensive defenseman. The only minor concern is that he has a minus-2 rating at the moment.

Senators' Karlsson Tallies Two Points

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal and had an assist Sunday against the Sharks. He also had nine shots on goal.
Analysis: Erik Karlsson has 10 points in 11 games this season, as he continues to be one of the best offensive defensemen in the league. He also has seven points in his last five games.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Contributes Two Assists In Win

News: Erik Karlsson contributed two assists in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: On a night in which his fellow defensemen amassed five points, Erik Karlsson still managed to standout as the offensive star with helpers on both of Jason Spezza's goals. Karlsson has more than lived up to his lofty draft standing with eight points through nine games.

Erik Karlsson

Sens' Karlsson Doubles Season Point Total

News: Erik Karlsson scored a goal, assisted on two more and went plus-3 in Thursday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: After Erik Karlsson managed just three points and a minus-4 in his first six games this season, he was due for a course correction, and he delivered that in a big way Thursday. While he was limited to just 17 games by a horrific skate slash to his Achilles last season, Karlsson appears healthy now, and if he's not the best offensive defenseman in the league, then he's second only to P.K. Subban.
