Ottawa Senators injury update: Brady Tkachuk out one month

After injuring his leg, Ottawa Senators rookie sensation Brady Tkachuk will miss about a month.  The Ottawa Senators came into this season with not too much hope. Especially after trading team captain Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks in September. However, after six games, they have a 3-2-1 record, good for seven points.

San Jose Sharks Fantasy: Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson May Eat into Each Other’s Value

San Jose Sharks Fantasy: Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson May Eat into Each Other’s Value

The San Jose Sharks made a major splash this summer with the acquisition of elite offensive defenseman Erik Karlsson. Karlsson spent the entirety of his nine-year career with the Ottawa Senators prior to the trade. Now a Shark, Karlsson joins an already-strong blueline group. San Jose has two of the top defensemen in the entire league now, as incumbent Brent Burns also ranks near the top of the league for his position. Burns and Karlsson make for an incredibly dynamic duo and makes the Sharks an incredibly dangerous team. As great as this is for the Sharks and their fans, it may not bode as...

New-Look Forward Lines For Stars In First Road Game This Season

New-Look Forward Lines For Stars In First Road Game This Season

Head coach Jim Montgomery liked what he saw from shuffled lines in the third period on Saturday, so he’s starting the game with similar configurations. In the offseason, fans, media, and hockey insiders label teams as winners and losers based on the moves (and sometimes the non-moves) of each individual team. By all accounts, the Ottawa Senators were an overwhelming “loser” this offseason. There was the cyberbullying allegations levied at Mike Hoffman’s girlfriend by Erik Karlsson’s wife, and then the subsequent trades of both players to the San Jose Sharks (who flipped Hoffman to...

Senators’ Chabot Embracing Top Defender Role

For the past nine seasons, Erik Karlsson has led the Ottawa Senators’ blue line, putting up 518 points from the back end in 627 games. On Sept. 13, the team traded its best player to the San Jose Sharks, marking not just the end of an era, but the beginning of one.

THW Hot Takes: Burns & Karlsson Dethroned

Hot take: Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere of the Philadelphia Flyers will outscore Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson of the San Jose Sharks.

Preview: Flyers look to rebound against Senators

Preview: Flyers look to rebound against Senators

Being outscored 13-4 in the last two games is not good, I’m told. After losing a game by six goals, you definitely want to get back on the ice and try and right the ship so to speak as quick as possible. Thankfully, the Flyers can do that tonight in Ottawa after whatever they decided to do against the Sharks last night in Philadelphia —because it certainly wasn’t hockey. Next up is a tilt north of the border with the Ottawa Senators, a club that has undergone major changes in the last calendar year to say the least. The Sens, now sans Erik Karlsson, are 1-1-1 through three games...

Preview: The home season begins vs. San Jose

A pigeonless home opener, but a home opener nonetheless. For the first time since their game six loss vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins in April, the Flyers will play a meaningful hockey game at the Wells Fargo Center. The team returns home after splitting the two west coast games to start the season. What treat do they get as they return home? Facing Erik Karlsson and the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks made arguably the biggest move of the offseason, acquiring Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators for...let’s not even talk about that return package anymore.

The San Jose Shark just might be a little better than last year

You know, the ones who landed Karlsson. The San Jose Sharks won the offseason lottery this year, acquiring Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators for...well, not a lot. So yes, the San Jose Sharks are certainly improved from last season, but are they improved enough to finally make a real push toward a Stanley Cup? We’re joined by Sie Morley from Fear The Fin to preview tonight’s home opener against Erik Karlsson’s new team. Topics include: The non-Karlsson offseason moves that have made this team better Brent Burns, 1C? The overall weakness of the Western Conference this...

They traded away Mike Hoffman and Erik Karlsson without any notable players in return. Chris Tierney, who came from the Sharks in the Karlsson deal, has been playing a large role so far.
