    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson scored twice during Wednesday's victory against the Maple Leafs.
    Insight: He has now scored three goals over the past two nights. He also had six shots on goal and a plus-one rating during Wednesday's win.
     
    1/20/2015 9:48:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson scored a goal during Tuesday's overtime loss to the Rangers.
    Insight: He also had four shots on goal and a minus-one rating. Karlsson now has nine goals and 31 points through 45 games.
     
    1/15/2015 10:22:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson scored his eighth goal of the season on Thursday.

    12/29/2014 10:22:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists and posted a plus-two rating on Monday.
    Insight: Karlsson is used to the points, but it is pretty rare for the defeseman to have a plus-rating because of his lack of defensive prowless. Karlsson has seven goals, 18 assists and a minus-11 rating in 36 games.
     
    11/22/2014 5:44:00 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.
     
    10/28/2014 10:17:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson scored and had an assist on Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.
    Insight: Karlsson has three goals and four assists this season.

    Hot12/23/2013 10:32:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists Monday against the Penguins.
    Insight: Karlsson has eight points over his last six games. He's attempted 124 SOG this season, second among defensemen. The only thing hurting his fantasy value is a minus differential, but he helped that out with a +2 Monday to bring it up to -8 on the year.
     
    Hot11/27/2013 10:14:00 PM
    Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists Wednesday against the Capitals.

    10/23/2013 10:27:00 PM
    Description: Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson had two assists Wednesday in Ottawa's 6-1 win over Detroit.
    Insight: Karlsson had just two points over the first five games but he's picked up his production as of late with a goal and five assists over his last four games. He's the top defenseman in fantasy.
     
    10/4/2013 10:33:00 PM
    Description: Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson scored the lone goal in Friday's 1-0 win over Buffalo.
    Insight: Karlsson suffered a partially lacerated Achilles' tendon last season and only played 17 games, but he manged to score eight goals and produce 14 points and 79 SOG, numbers that extrapolate to 17 goals, 22 assists and 223 SOG over 48 games. 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.

    Description: Sportsnet is reporting that Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson could be available for the postseason. Karlsson suffered an Achilles injury earlier in the season.
    Insight: Karlsson has been practicing but it's still a long shot that he'll be able to play again this season. That shouldn't stop owners from drafting Karlsson early in next year's fantasy draft.
     
    3/26/2013 5:39:00 PM
    Description: Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson (lacerated Achilles) has not ruled out returning for the playoffs, according to the Ottawa Citizen.
    Insight: Karlsson suffered a lacerated Achilles' tendon in February when he was cut by Penguins winger Matt Cooke's skate in a freak accident. The 22-year-old will not return for the regular season so fantasy owners can move on unless it is a keeper league.
