Erik Karlsson dealt to San Jose Sharks

NHL Rumors: Senators Trade Erik Karlsson To San Jose Sharks Ottawa Senators trade their captain and star defenceman Erik Karlsson to San Jose Sharks
Frederick Owens | 16 September, 2018, 04:42

Karlsson, who's going to be an unrestricted free agent next summer, is joining an all-star cast that includes fellow defenceman Brent Burns as well as offensive stars Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Evander Kane and Joe Thornton. Karlsson's current contract expires at the end of the season.

Though there had been talk about Karlsson's departure since the trade deadline last February, this will still come as a shock. "I think when you quantify the number of years it could take, then expectations could fall short". "I don't know what the timeframe is on that because of his immigration and things like that, but we'll get him in here and then we'll start to look at some of those things".

The Senators received center Chris Tierney and defenseman Dylan DeMelo, prospects Josh Norris and Rudolfs Balcers, a conditional 2019 second-round draft pick and a conditional 2020 first-round pick for their captain.

With Karlsson headlining the deal - and the multitude of pieces sent the other way - Perron's name will likely get lost in the shuffle.

"I hold this place above anything else", offered Karlsson, who also mentioned that he'd remain "an Ottawa resident forever".

They'll also receive a 2021 second-round pick if Karlsson re-signs, and that pick is upgraded to a first-rounder if San Jose also makes the 2019 Stanley Cup Final. Norris was a 2017 first-round pick by the Sharks, and posted eight goals and 23 points in 37 games with his freshman season with MI previous year.

The Ottawa Senators promised they were going into rebuild mode earlier this week. "This trade represents the best opportunity for the Ottawa Senators to rebuild towards a consistent excellence that we are striving for".

Seguin's new deal carries an average annual value of $9.85 million and kicks in for the 2019-2020 season, he now has one more year on his current contract at $5.75 million, and his new deal will make him the highest player on the team.

By adding Karlsson, a two-time Norris Trophy victor who spent the last nine seasons in Ottawa, San Jose has cannonballed the pool of Stanley Cup contenders. Tierney, 24, set a career-high with 40 points in 82 games with the Sharks last season.

"They made it very clear with the direction they were going in - and I wasn't part of that", Karlsson said. "I'm sure things will go smoothly in that regard, and we hope to have him here for a long time".

Karlsson's breakout season came in 2011-12 when he had 78 points (19 goals, 59 assists), while averaging 25:19 of ice time, but his performance in the 2017 playoffs stands out. He's added 37 points (six goals, 31 assists) in 48 playoff outings.

"I never really thought it was a possibility until I got the call this morning that we were doing it", coach Peter DeBoer said. Also, we know that this is simply about money because in what world is the best defenseman on the planet not part of your future plans? "So the fact that Doug got it done, obviously we're ecstatic and can't wait to get to work with him". DeMelo, 25, has recorded three goals in 133 National Hockey League games. Fantasy hockey owners will surely be circling around San Jose with two of the game's most productive defenders playing on the same team. Norris was picked 19th overall by the Sens in the 2017 draft.
