Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson has agreed to a month-to-month contract with Jokerit of SM-liiga, the club announced Wednesday.

Karlsson, the 2011-12 Norris Trophy winner, is expected to make his debut with the Finnish club Saturday.

In 81 games last season with the Senators, 22-year-old Karlsson had 19 goals and 59 assists.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
