Karlsson out at least one week for Sharks

Defenseman believed to have groin injury @NHLdotcom

Erik Karlsson will be out least one week for the San Jose Sharks because of what is believed to be a groin injury.

The defenseman didn't play the third period of a 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday after missing a 5-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

Karlsson previously had missed nine games with the injury before returning Feb. 16.

In his first season with the Sharks after being acquired in a trade with the Ottawa Senators on Sept. 13, Karlsson is second among San Jose defensemen with 45 points (three goals, 42 assists) in 52 games, behind Brent Burns' 70.
