  • Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Shows signs of life

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/18) Karlsson picked up two assists in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.

    He added a team-high eight shots and four blocked shots, along with one hit. Karlsson has had a bit of a tough transition to life outside of Ottawa, managing only two goals and 18 points through 30 games. Those are strong numbers for other blueliners, but a disappointment for someone with Karlsson's talent and resume. Friday's well-rounded effort could be a sign he's just about ready to break out.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Makes return to Ottawa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/1/18) Karlsson hosted his teammates Thursday, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports, as the defenseman is set to play his first game in Ottawa as a visitor Saturday.

    Karlsson is likely to receive a warm reception in Ottawa, as Senators fans were heartbroken by his trade and blamed owner Eugene Melnyk rather than Karlsson for his exit from Canada's capital. It's always difficult to predict how a player handles his return to his former home, and given Karlsson's talent, any outcome from a shutout to a big afternoon is possible. That said, you don't have him on your roster to not have him in your lineup.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Explodes for three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/18) Karlsson generated a power-play goal and two assists -- including a man-advantage helper -- in Friday's 4-0 home win over the Canucks.

    This was Karlsson's first three-point outing as a member of the Sharks. He stalled out against the Oilers on Tuesday, but the elite defenseman actually has two goals and six helpers over the last five after snapping out of a seven-game point drought. It looks like Karlsson is starting to get more comfortable on the Sharks' power play, so look out.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Heating up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Karlsson scored a goal and an assist in a 4-0 victory against the Blues on Saturday.

    It's been a slow start with the Sharks this season, but owners just had to remain patient, and Karlsson appears ready to reward anyone who has been. He has recorded multiple points in each of the last two games, and he has five points in the past three contests. His goal Saturday was also his first of the season. This mini-hot streak has his point total up to 12 in 21 games. It wouldn't at all be a surprise if Karlsson is one of the best fantasy defensemen in the NHL during the final three-quarters of the season.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Two assists in loss to Leafs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/18) Karlsson recorded two helpers -- one on the power play -- and four shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Sharks.

    Karlsson stepped up against a familiar Eastern Conference foe from his days with the Senators, producing just his second multi-point game with the Sharks. Owners were certainly hoping for more than zero goals and 10 assists 20 games into his Sharks tenure, but Karlsson is still expected to pick up the pace moving forward.
