  • The best free-agent defenseman is not hitting the market.
  • Multiple reports have Erik Karlsson staying in San Jose, with TSN’s Pierre LeBrun tweeting that an eight-year contract worth north of $11 million per season is done.
  • Extending Karlsson is be a big-time coup for the Sharks and general manager Doug Wilson, who took a risk by trading for Karlsson on an expiring deal last September.
  • It appears that both sides enjoyed their year together and are interested in continuing the relationship.
  • When the re-signing is made official, the Ottawa Senators will receive a 2021 second-round pick from San Jose as a provision of the deal that sent Karlsson to the Sharks last fall.
  • Back in May, Sharks fans were concerned about the tone of Karlsson’s end-of-season tweet when the club was eliminated from the playoffs. Supporters read into the tweet as more of a goodbye message to the organization.
