  • Senators' Erik Karlsson: Finalist for Norris Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/16) Karlsson has been announced as a finalist for the 2016 Norris Trophy, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Karlsson will face stiff competition for the award, with Drew Doughty and Brent Burns joining him as finalists. First, let's start with the bad for the blueliner -- a mediocre minus-2 rating. As for the rest, the 25-year-old Swede was downright spectacular. The 2008 first-round pick totaled 82 points, finding twine 16 times and amassing 66 apples. Karlsson was also special on the power play, notching 26 total points (25 helpers) in 4:39 of ice time during the man advantage. The superstar etched his name in history, becoming the fifth defenseman to reach 60 assists in a single season, and he also recorded the most points ever by a Swedish blueliner, surpassing the decorated Nicklas Lidstrom. Karlsson did everything he could this season to take home his third Norris Trophy, and he'll find out if it was enough when the winner is announced June 22.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Year of milestones for Swedish superstar

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/15/16) Karlsson finished his record-breaking 2015-16 season with a career-high 82 points, registering 16 goals, 66 assists and 50 PIM in 82 games.

    Karlsson's season was so spectacular that is would be doing the superstar a disservice if we didn't mention it again. The 25-year-old had a campaign to remember, notching the most points ever by a Swedish defenseman, while also becoming just the second blueliner in history to lead his squad in points for three or more seasons. Oh, not to mention the 2008 first-round pick is just one of five defensemen to ever surpass 60 apples. Karlsson is the best in the business without much debate, and the only icing on the cake he's missing is the coveted Norris Trophy (winner still to-be-determined). We like his chances, and the Swede remains amongst fantasy's elite going into next season.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Will sit out World Championships

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/16) Karlsson will sit out the World Championships in order to be well-rested for the 2016 World Cup in September, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    The 25-year-old deserves some rest, and Karlsson will now set his sights on leading Team Sweden to a 2016 World Cup. The superstar blueliner for Ottawa finished up one of the best campaigns ever by a defenseman, notching 82 points -- 56 at even strength -- and potentially a Norris Trophy to top it all off.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Ends decorated season with 82 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Karlsson recorded an assist and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-1 win against the Bruins.

    Karlsson finished his stellar campaign with 82 points -- easily the highest on the team. The 25-year-old became just the second blueliner to lead his squad in points in three-plus seasons, putting the icing on the cake in what may also lead to a Norris Trophy despite Ottawa's down year. The Swede ended 2015-16 with -- no surprise -- points in five straight, and he'll now set his sights on the upcoming 2016 World Cup.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Attains 81 points for milestone

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Karlsson dished out a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over Florida. The superstar now holds the record for most points in a season by a Swedish blueliner with 81.

    Karlsson passed Nicklas Lidstrom for most all-time amongst Swedish defensemen, and he still has one more game to add to the total. The 25-year-old star has reached the scoresheet in the last four contests, while also notching points in seven of eight. The point-per-game pace is safe, with the next step possibly being a well-earned Norris Trophy.
