OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators (@Senators) general manager Pierre Dorion announced that captain Erik Karlsson had surgery earlier today to repair torn tendons in his left foot.
"Erik underwent surgery earlier today in Charlotte, N.C, to repair torn tendons in his left foot. The tears, which occurred during this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs, were found during an MRI as part of an extensive medical evaluation following the season."
"The recovery from this surgery is expected to take approximately four months. This timeline leaves us hopeful that Erik will be fully recovered and healthy to start the 2017-18 regular season."
