11/1/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson was minus-four on Saturday versus the Bruins.
Insight: Yikes. As much as that hurts fantasy teams, it is somewhat expected from the Senators defenseman. Karlsson is an offense-first defenseman, so he is going to get burned in games.

Hot12/23/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists Monday against the Penguins.
Insight: Karlsson has eight points over his last six games. He's attempted 124 SOG this season, second among defensemen. The only thing hurting his fantasy value is a minus differential, but he helped that out with a +2 Monday to bring it up to -8 on the year.
 
Hot11/27/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists Wednesday against the Capitals.

10/23/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists Wednesday in Ottawa's 6-1 win over Detroit.
Insight: Karlsson had just two points over the first five games but he's picked up his production as of late with a goal and five assists over his last four games. He's the top defenseman in fantasy.

Montreal's P.K. Subban won the Norris Trophy and was fantasy's best defenseman with 11 goals, 27 assists and 126 SOG in 42 games, but Karlsson is back to reclaim the crown.
 
4/25/2013 12:38:00 PM
Description: According to the Ottawa Citizen, Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson (Achilles) will return to the lineup Thursday.
Insight: Karlsson hasn't played since suffering a partially lacerated Achilles' tendon on Feb. 13. He was the top fantasy defenseman prior to his injury and could play in the final three games for Ottawa.

Insight: Karlsson has been practicing but it's still a long shot that he'll be able to play again this season. That shouldn't stop owners from drafting Karlsson early in next year's fantasy draft.
 
3/26/2013 5:39:00 PM

Insight: Karlsson suffered a lacerated Achilles' tendon in February when he was cut by Penguins winger Matt Cooke's skate in a freak accident. The 22-year-old will not return for the regular season so fantasy owners can move on unless it is a keeper league.
