Karlsson hasn't played since sustaining a 70-percent tear of the Achilles' tendon in his left leg when he was stepped on by the Pittsburgh Penguins' Matt Cooke during a game Feb. 13.

The 2012 Norris Trophy winner underwent surgery to repair the cut Feb. 14, and was expected to miss 3-4 months. He had 10 points in 14 games at the time of the injury, and was averaging 27:03 of ice time per game.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
