The team isn't talking, but it now seems like the rumors of an injury to Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson is far more than just a rumor.
While the Senators themselves have yet to comment on the situation, there is no longer any doubt that not all is well with their elite defenseman. First, reports surfaced yesterday that Karlsson was spotted limping around, and now we have more bad news from practice.
After initially failing to appear at all during the practice, Karlsson made his way to the ice towards the end of that practice and skated around in a track suit. That being Senators insider Bruce Garrioch is reporting that it was just a few short minutes before Karlsson pulled himself off the ice again.
Still no official comment from the team, but the signs do no not look good.
