Sens’ Karlsson will accept captaincy if offered

He led the team in points last season and he won the Norris Trophy in 2012 as the league’s best defenseman at the age of 21. Now that he’s a regular veteran at 24 years old and the Senators are in need of a new captain with Jason Spezza now in Dallas, many think it’s time for Karlsson...

While acknowledging the challenges his star defenceman faced, the Ottawa Senators coach didn’t let Karlsson off the hook for some of his questionable defensive play. "Offensively, he’s gifted.

Karlsson Speaks Candidly to Aftonbladet: Divorce, Loss of Friends/Teammates in 2013

Swedish newspapers get all the scoops. After bringing Senators fans the infamous Andre Petersson interview in which he cracked on Binghamton and the KISS photo, Aftonbladet has now published the most introspective Erik Karlsson interview that I’ve probably ever seen that didn’t involve Karlsson eating a meal with Ian Mendes at IKEA.
