Star Defenseman Erik Karlsson Reportedly Traded to Sharks

Star Defenseman Erik Karlsson Reportedly Traded to Sharks

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.

The conditional picks, meanwhile, are contingent on the Sharks re-signing Karlsson, making it to the Stanley Cup Final next summer, or Karlsson returning to the Eastern Conference as an unrestricted free agent next summer.

That team is the San Jose Sharks.Wilson has been trying to get something done for a while now and this morning I am hearing they are even looking into an extension.that only happens if the pieces are nearly in place.So the Sharks are a legit possibility.One source told me in the last hour."The Sharks are making a huge push". Oh, and here's where you can mention that the Senators do not possess their 2019 first-round pick, either. "We think Erik fits with us now and for a long time".

Karlsson would be a huge addition to the Sharks blue line, especially as they look to build around the likes of Evander Kane and Brent Burns.

The rumor of the summer - and at one point looking like a lock to actually happen - Karlsson is instead moving out West, where he will remain far away from the Bruins team he singlehandedly dominated in the first round in 2017. Dorion stated during town hall meetings with seasons ticket holders in April that he would offer Karlsson a long-term contract extension on July 1 and the club did. He was the Senators' first-round pick in 2008 (15th overall). With each in the final year of his contract, signing them long term is a top priority. Karlsson won the Norris as the league's best defenseman in 2012 and 2015. Colin White, 21, who had six points (two goals, four assists) in 21 games last season, is on the verge of becoming a full-time National Hockey League forward.

"He's going to go somewhere and have a better chance to win a cup", said Schlathau, who thinks the franchise as a whole is facing existential challenges.

Erik Karlsson being traded by the Ottawa Senators confirmed the rebuilding mode they have been speaking about all offseason.

Asked about Melnyk, Melbourne said it was time to get him "out of here".

The decision to deal Karlsson isn't going over well in Ottawa - not only was he the club's best player, he was also one of the most popular to ever pull on the jersey, second only to Alfredsson. "It's always going to be my home and it's always going to be a community that I'm going to be as much involved in as I possibly can and give back in whatever way that I can". He had career highs with 17 goals and 23 assists and played all 82 games. A two-time Norris Trophy victor as the NHL's top blueliner, he has 126 goals and 518 points in 627 games. He has 41 goals and 63 assists in 284 career games.

Balcers spent last season in the AHL and Norris was a first-round pick in 2017 and entering his sophomore season at MI.
