Senators’ Karlsson Leaves Game After Skate Blade Cuts Achilles

Erik Karlsson, the reigning Norris Trophy winner as the National Hockey League’s top defenseman, will be out indefinitely after his Achilles tendon was cut by a skate blade during the Ottawa Senators’ loss in Pittsburgh last night.

Karlsson was injured when he got tangled up with the Penguins’ Matt Cooke along the boards during the 4-2 defeat. No penalty was called on the play.

“He’s a player that’s irreplaceable,” Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson told reporters after the game. “It’s exciting to watch Erik play every night.”

Karlsson leads Ottawa with six goals and ranks second with 10 points. He has averaged 27 minutes, 3 seconds per game, fifth among all NHL players this season.

The 22-year-old Swede had to be helped off the ice after the injury occurred late in the second period. As Karlsson was being checked by Cooke into the boards along the side of the arena, Cooke’s left foot came off the ice and the blade of his skate contacted the back of Karlsson’s left leg.

The team hasn’t said how long Karlsson will be out of action.
