Erik Karlsson out until Olympic break with shoulder injury

Some bad news making the rounds today: rookie blueliner Erik Karlsson's shoulder injury from last night will keep him out until at least the Olympic break. He joins fellow youngster Nick Foligno on that injury timeline.

This is a huge loss for the Senators, as Karlsson had become their best offensive defenceman throughout their recent 11 game win streak. His speed and precision passing are unmatched on the Senators' blueline, and his absence was immediately noticeable in last night's game against the Vancouver Canucks. During the win streak, Karlsson assisted on 5 goals, had 18 shots and was +8.

Expect Alex Picard to take his place on the blueline until he returns from injury.
