Karlsson named NHL's Second Star

by Craig Medaglia / Ottawa Senators

Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson is getting some League-wide recognition for his play over the past week as he was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week for the week ending January 25th.

From the NHL...

SECOND STAR – ERIK KARLSSON, D, OTTAWA SENATORS

Karlsson tied for first among all players with three goals/points in two contests, helping the Senators (19-18-9, 47 points) pick up three out of a possible four standings points. He scored his ninth goal of the season in a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers Jan. 20. Karlsson then found the back of the net twice, including the game-winning tally, in a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs Jan. 21. It marked Karlsson's seventh career multi-goal game and first since Nov. 5, 2013 (2-0—2 at CBJ). Since entering the NHL in 2009-10, only Shea Weber (9) and Mike Green (8) have more multi-goal performances among defensemen. A 24-year-old Landsbro, Sweden, native, Karlsson shares first on the Senators with 11-22—33 in 46 appearances this season. His 33 points also rank sixth among all defensemen in 2014-15.

Here's a nice look at some of his recent handiwork against the Toronto Maple Leafs last Wednesday...
