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.

Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists Monday against the Penguins.

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.
