The US Open is currently underway at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The matches are being broadcast by the network ESPN.

ESPN is known for their lack of NHL coverage, so it wasn't much of a surprise when the cameras panned to a certain someone in the stands and he wasn't recognized.

Ottawa Senators' blueliner Erik Karlsson is coming off an epic 71-point season, but is coming off major offseason surgery and still hasn't stepped back onto the ice.

He might not be ready for opening night, but he's certainly enjoying his time away from the rink.
