Senators' Erik Karlsson: Nudges point streak to four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karlsson notched a power-play assist and an empty-net goal to seal Tuesday's 7-4 victory against Arizona. He finished plus-3.

That's four straight games with a point and seven total points with a plus-7 rating for Karlsson to open the year -- and yet he's been overshadowed a bit among blueliners by Brent Burns, who's looking even better than last year. It's going to be fun watching those two battle it out for the title of fantasy's top defenseman as the season goes on.

Senators' Erik Karlsson: Starts year with points in three straight
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Karlsson picked up a shorthanded assist and two hits during Monday's 5-1 loss to the Red Wings.

Surprisingly enough, it was Karlsson's first special-teams point of the year. The 26-year-old continues to prove that even through his team's struggles, he can find a way to reach the box score. The 2008 No. 15 pick has registered a goal and four assists through three games, and he'll surely continue to pile up the points as the season rolls along.

Senators' Erik Karlsson: Shift times down as requested by coach
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Through two games, Karlsson's shift times are down from 1:04 (last year's average) to 42 seconds, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports. When asked about coach Guy Boucher's plan to continue the trend, the blueliner noted he will need help from the coaches, but added "at the end of the day, it's going to be upon me whether I change or not. Maybe it's something I can improve. Hopefully, it will make me into a better hockey player."

Karlsson has still been able to produce, as the superstar Swede has a goal and three helpers along with a plus-3 rating. While there are no power-play points to speak of, the 26-year-old is a consistent threat with the man advantage and coach Guy Boucher had previously mentioned keeping him out for the entirety of special teams situations. The decrease in shift time may have raised a red flag for some, but it's no cause for concern, as Karlsson has spent an average of 29:07 on the ice over two games.

Senators' Erik Karlsson: Picks up usual assist
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Karlsson notched an assist during Saturday's 4-3 shootout win against Montreal.

Without Carey Price protecting the crease, the Senators were able to score three times and Karlsson got a piece of the action. The 26-year-old superstar should again be at the top of the food chain of not only defensemen, but all skaters, as one of the top point-getters in the NHL this season.

Senators' Erik Karlsson: Starts out year with three points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karlsson lit the lamp on eight shots, adding two assists and a plus-3 rating during Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Maple Leafs.

Besides having his troubles with young star Auston Matthews, it was business as usual for Karlsson on Opening Night. The Swedish superstar maintained a point-per-game pace with ease last season, kicking off 2016-17 with a bang and ensuring you were correct in choosing him as the No. 1 blueliner off the board. Despite early talks of limiting shift times, the 26-year-old was on ice for 27:36, easily the highest on the team. The 2008 No. 15 pick dropped 82 points last season, but something tells us we haven't seen the best of Karlsson just yet. Expect fireworks from the stud throughout the year.
