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

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
