  • NHL Rumors: Senators Trade Erik Karlsson To San Jose Sharks

Karlsson now has one year left on an expiring contract that will pay him $7.5 million next season but has a cap hit of $6.5 million.

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.

"It's extremely rare that players of this caliber become available", Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. Forward Francis Perron is headed to the Sharks along with Karlsson. Karlsson played nine seasons in Ottawa.

The Sabres conditionally own the Sharks 2019 first round pick.

At his press conference today after the deal that sent him to the San Jose Sharks for a package of six assets, Karlsson was seemingly in disbelief of what had just transpired.

The Senators dealt their captain as players reported for medicals at the Canadian Tire Centre Thursday. The move comes on the eve of the first on-ice session at Senators training camp. Karlsson said the deal still came as a shock but he is eager to begin work on a team that made the Stanley Cup Final in 2016 and lost to Vegas in the second round previous year.

Jaitley in a post on Facebook on Wednesday evening wrote: "The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect truth".

"I don't think that I could have ever prepared for this", Karlsson said.

After watching the Matt Duchene saga hang over the Colorado Avalanche past year, Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion clearly did not want to enter his season with his disgruntled star still on the roster. "We are going to build a culture of consistency which will allow this team to sustain better performance over the long term". Over the years, Wilson has acquired players like Thornton, Burns, Kane and Dan Boyle in trades and signed all of them to long-term deals. The only player with a higher fantasy ceiling after the Karlsson trade is defenseman Thomas Chabot. "We think Erik fits with us now and for a long time".

"It's a city that I'm going to set my roots in and forever stay in, even though I'm not going to represent this hockey club anymore", said Karlsson. A two-time Norris Trophy victor as the NHL's top blueliner, he has 126 goals and 518 points in 627 games.

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.

"I never really thought it was a possibility until I got the call this morning that we were doing it", coach Peter DeBoer said. Hoffman, one of the team's most productive forwards, was dumped to the Sharks, who quickly moved him to the Panthers. Karlsson was already projected to lead all defensemen in points by NHL.com prior to the trade, and now could feasibly challenge his NHL career high of 82 points from 2015-16.

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