NHL Rumors: Senators Trade Erik Karlsson To San Jose Sharks


When that move failed and Tavares signed with Toronto, Wilson stood pat instead of rushing into a lesser move.

Karlsson has won two Norris Trophies as the NHL's top defenceman.

"It's extremely rare that players of this calibre become available", GM Doug Wilson said in a statement. "The word "elite" is often thrown around casually but Erik's skillset and abilities fit that description like few other players in today's game". In return, the Senators will get a first-round pick in 2019 or 2020, centre Chris Tierney, a second-round pick in 2019 (the best of the two San Jose now has), prospect centre Josh Morris, prospect Rudolfs Balcers, and defenceman Dylan DeMelo. With Karlsson gone, that starts with forwards Matt Duchene and Mark Stone. If San Jose re-signs Karlsson, Ottawa receives a conditional 2021 second-round selection - or a first-round pick (not lottery protected) if the Sharks reach the Stanley Cup final in 2019.

Karlsson, 27, was selected by the Senators with the 15th overall pick of the 2008 draft. "The Sens also get a 1st in 2021 or 2022 if Karlsson plays for an eastern team in 2018/19". "All of the players leaving our organization have a very bright future in this league and we wish them all the best".

Karlsson, 28, has one year left on his contract but Wilson said he hopes to keep him for the long term. Nine years ago on September 12, 2009, the Senators dealt winger Dany Heatley to the Sharks on the first day of camp.

The star defenseman's name has been abound in trade talks for months, as Karlsson's been connected to several teams, most notably the Tampa Bay Lightning, Las Vegas Golden Knights and recently the Vancouver Canucks.

Karlsson rumors are indeed intensifying, however talking to people I get the sense that most of the people/chatter implying this is "really close to happening" is being driven once again by Ottawa's desire to force the hand of some of the teams with which they have discussed Karlsson. He also led the team in average ice time (26:44, 3rd in the NHL), was second in blocked shots (120) and takeaways (55) and second in scoring with 62 points (nine goals, 53 assists). And despite sounding like a straight-up imaginary player or somebody that the AI creates when you get too deep into a franchise mode in National Hockey League 19, Balcers is indeed real, and had 23 goals and 48 points in 67 AHL contests a season ago. "It's a weird time to make a trade when I had just come in and seen the guys, especially Tierney and DeMelo and they leave the next day", Sharks defenseman Marc-Eduoard Vlasic told NBC Sports California's Brodie Brazil in an exclusive interview Thursday.

This transaction signifies that Ottawa is now in full rebuild mode, but with an angry fan base upset at the current leadership group, the situation in the nation's capital may only get more volatile from here. He had career highs with 17 goals and 23 assists and played all 82 games. The 2012 Norris Trophy victor posted nine goals and 53 assists over 71 games last season.
