from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
It was Erik Karlsson’s time to shine.
While captain Daniel Alfredsson was the star of the NHL all-star show, the Senators defenceman also received top billing as the hockey world found out how good this 21-year-old has the potential to be.
If he wasn’t already getting consideration for the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenceman, he certainly is now.
He probably won’t beat Zdeno Chara or Nicklas Lidstrom in voting, but at least Karlsson should be on the ballot.
“(All-star weekend was) great for him,” said teammate Jason Spezza.
Actually, it couldn’t be better.
