Erik Karlsson seems shook after trade to Sharks

NHL Rumors: Senators Trade Erik Karlsson To San Jose Sharks

It's also being reported that no contract extension is involved in this deal. After just missing out on John Tavares, the Sharks were able to land a whale this offseason to go with Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the blueline. 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.

Oh, and the Bruins absolutely do not have to worry about Karlsson torching them in April again if the Senators somehow repeated their straight-up freakish trend of having one awful year (last year) followed by a playoff-caliber year. Ottawa gets a second-round choice in the 2019 draft from San Jose (which will be the higher of the two picks the Sharks now own - the Florida Panthers' and their own).

After winning the Stanley Cup and returning largely the same roster for the upcoming campaign, the Capitals head into the National Hockey League season as the team to beat...or at least they were going to be.

Coincidentally, Hoffman and Karlsson have an alleged connection that may have a played a role in their trades.

The Senators dealt Karlsson and prospect forward Francis Perron to the Sharks. "This trade represents the best opportunity for the Ottawa Senators to rebuild towards a consistent excellence that we are striving for". "It will take me a long time to get over it". Senators winger Bobby Ryan told the Ottawa Sun in May that he heard a deal was done to send himself and Karlsson to a Western Conference team, but "somebody backed out at the last second".

"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.

The Sharks never let up in their interest in Karlsson and made the addition without giving up a top-six forward or top-four defenseman from the current roster. "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". "We've had discussions about it, but you never really feel that it's going to come to fruition, a deal like this, until you actually get that call".

Ottawa receives San Jose's first-round choice in either 2019 or 2020 (not lottery protected). Nine years ago on September 12, 2009, the Senators dealt winger Dany Heatley to the Sharks on the first day of camp.

DeMelo played mostly on San Jose's third defensive pair last season when he had no goals and 20 assists in 63 games.

The 24-year-old Tierney is the biggest name of the group, and comes to the Senators after posting career-highs in goals (17), assists (23), and points (40) for the Sharks last season.
