      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Posts consecutive two-point efforts

      Karlsson posted a goal and a power-play assist for the second consecutive game Thursday against Vancouver, adding a plus-1 rating and two PIM in a winning effort. The goal was vintage Karlsson, a one-timer from wide-open ice that he blasted past Ryan Miller. Before Tuesday's rather similar two-point performance, Karlsson hadn't posted a goal all year long and hadn't recorded a multi-point effort in nearly a month, dating back to Oct. 14. Of course, as we've seen in recent years, there's no other defenseman who can put the puck home like Karlsson can, so expect the points to keep flooding in for the NHL's premier offensive blueliner.

      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Adds goal, assist in loss

      Karlsson collected a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Predators. The goal was Karlsson's first of the season, as he was finally able to break through in a game that didn't feature much defense. He now has 14 points through 15 games on the year, and continues to be one of the premier fantasy defensemen in the league.

      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Stuck in mini slump

      Karlsson has picked up just one point (an assist) to go with a minus-3 rating in the last four games -- all losses. While Karlsson continues to play his typically heavy minutes, the Sens as a team have struggled over the course of this stretch, and he's been no exception. It's well worth noting that Karlsson has only taken 17 shots in eight games -- well below his usual rate -- and has yet to find twine after averaging 20 goals over his past three full seasons. Even so, he's still averaging a point per game, thanks to all the assists he piled up in the season's first week.

      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Goes off for four assists Wednesday

      Karlsson was a menace to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, dishing out four assists in a 7-4 victory. He also skated to a plus-4 rating and fired three shots on goal. All seven of Karlsson's points have come in just two of Ottawa's four games this season, as he was held pointless against Montreal and Buffalo. Scoring at over a point-per-game clip is a near-impossible task for any defenseman, but as the league's most offensively gifted and prolific blueliner, look for Karlsson to legitimately make a run at that point-per-game milestone this season.

      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Positive start

      Karlsson earned a plus+2 rating in Ottawa's Thursday night win over Buffalo. While Karlsson did not light the lamp or get credited with an assist in the Senators Thursday night 3-1 win over the Sabres - the All-Star defenseman was on the ice for two of Ottawa's three goals. Karlsson is always relative and should find the blue liner in the hunt for yet another Norris trophy.
