The Norris Trophy is Erik Karlsson’s to lose

The Norris Trophy is Erik Karlsson’s to lose

The Sens captain is suddenly the consensus best defenceman in the league The NHL has developed a recent tradition of crowning the Norris Trophy winner (for best defenceman) before the season starts. This happened arguably as a result of Erik Karlsson’s Norris win in 2014-15. Drew Doughty actually received more first-place votes but didn’t win, and hockey media seemed to vow Doughty would get his due. They spent the 2015-16 hockey year talking about his two Stanley Cups and two gold medals (none of which came in that year), and how he deserved to be called the best defenceman alive. Sure...

Senators Send Chabot Back to Belleville, Formenton to London

Senators Send Chabot Back to Belleville, Formenton to London

The two youngsters are done their stints in the NHL. The Ottawa Senators announced today that they’d sent defenseman Thomas Chabot back down to the AHL and Alex Formenton to his OHL team in London. With Johnny Oduya back from injury, and Erik Karlsson’s return looming, it was expected that the Senators would be returning a couple young players to junior or the minors, but Chabot’s reassignment could be a bit surprising to some. The 20-year-old impressed with minimal ice time during the three-game road trip. With two assists, some consistent play in his own end and quarterbacking...

Game 6 Preview: Vancouver Canucks @ Ottawa Senators

Game 6 Preview: Vancouver Canucks @ Ottawa Senators

It’s a rematch of last week’s game! When these teams met a week ago in Vancouver, things were different. The Senators had lost a pair of games in the shootout. The Canucks had just beat the high-flying Oilers. Ottawa used a shootout win to launch an Erik Karlsson-less domination of Western Canada, while the Canucks lost two more after that loss to the Sens. Vancouver looks to avenge the loss, but Erik Karlsson makes his season debut, making a win a little harder for the ‘Nucks. A non-Karlsson unnamed defender has a “bo-bo” according to Boucher so it’s unclear if the Sens will go...

Canucks beat Senators! (We mean it this time)

Canucks beat Senators! (We mean it this time)

Nilsson gets the shutout in a 3-0 victory The Canucks went on their first road trip of the year and ended up in a place so foul that people get voted in to live there. That’s right…Ottawa. Funny enough, the best player in the world also plays there. Talk about pumping someone’s tires….Coach Boucher might be a bit biased when it comes to Erik Karlsson. I’m pretty sure there might be some other players out there with a Stanley Cup ring or an Olympic gold medal that might be better. Heck, there might even be a guy in Alberta that is better than Karlsson. The Canucks leave town just...
