Karls­son set to be toast of the coast

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

The San Jose Sharks swung a mon­ster deal to ac­quire cap­tain and All-Star de­fense­man Erik Karls­son from the Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors on Thurs­day.

The Sharks sent for­ward Chris Tier­ney, de­fense­man Dy­lan DeMelo, prospects Josh Nor­ris and Ru­dolfs Bal­cers, a con­di­tional 2019 sec­on­dround draft pick and a con­di­tional 2020 first-round pick to the Sen­a­tors in ex­change for the four-time All-Star and two-time Nor­ris Tro­phy win­ner as the NHL’s to de­fense­man.

The deal also in­cludes two ad­di­tional con­di­tional picks. Ot­tawa re­ceives San Jose’s 2021 sec­ond-round pick if Karls­son re-signs with San Jose, and the pick be­comes a first-rounder if the Sharks reach the 2019 Stan­ley Cup fi­nal.
