Star Defenseman Erik Karlsson Reportedly Traded to Sharks

Star Defenseman Erik Karlsson Reportedly Traded to Sharks

If the Sharks miss the playoffs, the Senators will get a first-round pick in 2019, and if they make the post-season the club will get a No. 1 pick in 2020. "As you said, there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, but I never in my wildest imagination thought that I was going to leave this place". "I was not part of that plan and that's why we're standing here today".

Ottawa also gets a second-round pick in 2021 if Karlsson re-signs with the Sharks. It's a very emotional and sad day for me and my family. "For the benefit of the organization, for the benefit of the rebuild, for the succession of the rebuild, I think today we made the proper decision".

Karlsson, whose contract expires at the end of this season, doesn't quite see it that way. Nine years ago on September 12, 2009, the Senators dealt winger Dany Heatley to the Sharks on the first day of camp. "Even though there's been a lot of noise for nearly a year now, I never thought in my wildest imagination I was going to leave this place".

"As of right now, it is really emotional and a sad, sad moment", the two-time Norris Trophy victor explained. There were thousands of empty seats for some games last season, and the organization figures to face a similar challenge in 2018-19. 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). However, around here the most important job I have is to chase down rumors.so when Karlsson starts to heat up I always feel I owe it to all of you to focus on rumors.I know that is why you come here and I never take that for granted.

Perron was a seventh-round pick in 2014 and spent the past two seasons in the AHL.

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.

The 24-year old Tierney was drafted 55th overall in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Sharks.
