Sens’ Erik Karlsson Not Worried About Trade Talk

Published

Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson may hear his name mentioned in the trade rumors, but it certainly isn’t effecting him on the ice.

Ottawa general manager Pierre Dorion stated that while the team plans to keep the two-time Norris Trophy winner for life, they would be listening to trade offers, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

Dorion even went as far as to point out even Wayne Gretzky was traded in his prime.

“This isn’t close to that,” Karlsson said of the comparison, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun. “I don’t know why that parallel is being drawn.”

“This isn’t something I can control. I’m going to do the job I’ve done,” Karlsson said, according to Garrioch. “I’m going to do the best I can to help this team. When the time comes to make a decision, I will make one.”

So we’ll get him down, he’ll leave today to go up to Belleville and play this weekend at Belleville and Laval.

There’s no timetable. His play and physical fitness will determine that.”

Ladd, who inked a seven-year, $38.5 million contract back in 2016, has not played in a game for the Islanders this season.
