On the Ottawa Senators …

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen: Defenseman Erik Karlsson had been hoping to play this weekend, but GM Pierre Dorion said that won’t happen.

“We’re hopeful that he will play at some point in time next week,” Dorion said.

When Karlsson is ready to return, they want him to be able to play his usual 25 to 30 minutes a game.

Johnny Oduya could be ready for Saturday night.
