Senators’ Erik Karlsson Says Ankle is 110 Percent

Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson is feeling pretty good about his ankle, although there is uncertainty surrounding his future in Ottawa.

Karlsson never seemed to get back on track after missing the first 5 games of last season after undergoing surgery on his ankle to repair tendons.

Karlsson now says his ankle is feeling better than it ever has.

“I think it’s better now than it was before because you work on it so much,” Karlsson said, according to The Athletic’s Chris Stevenson. “I’m very optimistic moving forward from here. It shouldn’t be an issue for me whatsoever, so that’s nice.

“110 (percent) probably,” Karlsson said. “It’s that good.”

“I’m seeing another ankle specialist in Ottawa a lot, too,” Karlsson said. “Mostly it’s just getting strength back and getting used to the feeling, which takes a bit of time now and that time is past. I’ve got my new normal again and it feels great.”
