  • Senators' Erik Karlsson: Making season debut Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Karlsson (foot) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's contest against Vancouver.

    The all-world defender was forced to miss the team's first five games of 2017-18 after undergoing offseason surgery to repair the foot injury he battled through last postseason. Despite waiting until Monday to even go through a practice with contact, starting Karlsson on Tuesday should be a no-brainer for fantasy owners.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Sporting regular jersey

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Karlsson (foot) ditched the non-contact jersey for practice Monday, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

    Karlsson has not suited up for the Sens this season, as he continues to recover from offseason surgery. Being cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction; however, the team has not yet given him the green light to play. Ottawa is in action Tuesday against Vancouver, which could mark the defender's 2017-18 debut -- although Thursday versus New Jersey gives him a little more time to get back to 100 percent.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Possibly returning next week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/14/17) Karlsson (foot) could play as early as Tuesday against Vancouver but still doesn't have a definite return timeline, according to head coach Guy Boucher, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    The Senators enter their game against Edmonton on Saturday with a solid 2-0-2 record, so ensuring Karlsson is 100 percent healthy before returning should remain priority No. 1. Of course, fantasy owners would love to have the elite defenseman back as soon as possible, but avoiding further aggravation of the long-standing foot injury is critical to Karlsson posting another monster campaign.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Missing additional contests

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/11/17) Karlsson (foot) will remain in Ottawa for the remaining two games of the team's road trip to Western Canada, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    This news effectively rules out Karlsson at least until the team returns home to take on Vancouver. Unlike most other players returning from long layoffs due to injury, Karlsson not only needs to get healthy, but raise his fitness to levels that will enable him to play the 27 minutes per game that he's been accustomed to receiving for the past five seasons. Look for the Sens to give a better indication of a possible return date for Karlsson after they complete their road trip Saturday.

    Senators' Erik Karlsson: Stays back in Ottawa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/17) Karlsson (foot) is back in Ottawa resuming his rehab and skating, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Meanwhile, the Senators have traveled to Vancouver in preparation for a game against the Canucks on Tuesday.

    This news effectively rules Karlsson out for the next contest. It always stings to see an elite player on your bench, but the Swede has been skating and isn't on injured reserve, suggesting that he may not be out too much longer. The Senators' three-game road trip ends against the Oilers on Saturday.
