  • Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Set to practice in San Jose on Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/18) Karlsson's first practice with the Sharks is scheduled for Wednesday morning, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Team Teal missed out on the John Tavares sweepstakes in free agency, but GM Doug Wilson trading for a two-time Norris Trophy Winner (2012, 2015) in Karlsson is a terrific consolation prize for fans of the Stanley Cup-starved franchise. There's heavy speculation that Karlsson and another elite offensive rearguard, Brent Burns, will be on separate pairings to open the season, but Karlsson's first practice -- or the press conference that follows -- could shed more light on how head coach Peter DeBoer specifically plans to deploy them.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Arriving next week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/18) Karlsson is expected to report to Sharks training camp next week, Eric Gilmore of NHL.com reports

    According to head coach Peter DeBoer, Karlsson is dealing with work visa issues and has been trying to expedite things as much as possible, having already missed the start of training camp. At this point, the problems appear minor and there's little reason to doubt Karlsson won't be on the ice next week.

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Could be signed to long-term deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/18) Karlsson is a target for a long-term contract by Sharks management, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    According to the tweet, San Jose General Manager Doug Wilson confirmed in a conference call that the team plans on keeping the recently-acquired Karlsson in teal and black for a while when he said "Yes, it's a long-term approach. We think Erik fits with us now and for a long time."

    Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Brought in via trade

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/18) Karlsson was acquired by San Jose from Ottawa on Thursday -- along with Francis Perron -- in exchange for Chris Tierny, Josh Norris, Rudolfs Balcers, Dylan DeMelo, a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 first-round selection, Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network reports.

    After missing out on the John Tavares sweepstakes, the Sharks were still in the market for a big addition and will now have a blue line that features two of the best defensemen in the league in Karlsson and Brent Burns. There are also two conditional picks that would head to Ottawa dependant on San Jose re-signing Karlsson to a long-term deal or him joining an Eastern Conference roster this season. While, the team doesn't have much in terms of cap space heading into next season, the haul it gave up to bring in the Swede makes it highly unlikely something won't get worked out with the perennial All-Star and two-time Norris Trophy winner.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Subject of trade rumors, again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/18) Trade talks regarding Karlsson have reportedly picked up again, with a Western Conference team the most likely landing spot, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    By sending Karlsson to the Western Conference, the Senators would limit the number of times they would have to face the world-class defender. Some reports have suggested that the Sharks are in the mix after missing out on John Tavares, as well as the Golden Knights, who were early contenders to snag the Swede, though that was prior to Vegas' acquisition of Max Pacioretty.
