If there are any star performers that the Senators believe in to make scores and propel the team to greater heights, Karlsson must definitely be part of that list. Erik Karlsson is with no doubt one star defenseman that the Senators would miss a lot for the rest of this season. This is after last Monday’s injury when the Senators were playing against Pittsburgh Penguins. Only 22 years of age, Karlsson has been able to create a name for himself in the game and there is no doubt that the Senators feel that they have lost a lot as a result of his injury in the Monday game against the Penguins. This is one man who never misses his mark and at the time of the injury, he was the lead scorer for the Senators.

The Achilles injury might have ruled star man Erik out of the season entirely, especially considering that the injury was not mild. He was in fact stretchered out of the play area since he was not able to put any more pressure on the leg. The team manager, according to a Twitter post on the Senators hash tag, states that Karlsson might be out for the entire season. The Achilles injury was serious and would require surgery alongside closer supervision and medical care.

The Norris trophy winner injury has truly devastated many Senators fans and they would have to live with it perhaps for the entire season. The team manager would have to go back to the drawing board and get a solution for the gap that has been left by star defenseman Karlsson. The loss of Karlsson is with no doubt a major blow for the team, especially considering that they are playing without left wing Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza. Spezza is said to be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery for herniated disk while Milan on other hand it nursing lower body injuries after Wednesday’s game.

For many people and even the goalie Craig Anderson, Karlsson is the kind of a player who is just irreplaceable. However, in as much as this is not a fortunate occurrence, the team manager would still have to find a solution to the current stalemate. Although this is a major loss, the team would lever lose the enthusiasm and morale. If you believe that the Senators have got a chance to lift the trophy this year, you can log on to and place your wager. You can also place a wager on NHL to show support for the team even after the unfortunate injury of Karlsson.
