Erik Karlsson Has No Doubts Regarding His Ankle

from Chris Stevenson of The Athletic,

Karlsson made it clear he didn’t want to discuss the off-season developments with the Ottawa Senators, but he did address the condition of his surgically-repaired left ankle. Karlsson had surgery to repair torn tendons 13 months ago and it has been a long road back. He was wearing flip-flops at the Senators golf tournament last September because he couldn’t get his foot in his shoe. He didn’t skate with his teammates until Sept. 23 and he missed the first five games of the regular season....

“I think it’s better now than it was before because you work on it so much,” he said. “I’m very optimistic moving forward from here. It shouldn’t be an issue for me whatsoever, so that’s nice.”

Could he put a percentage on it?

“110 (per cent) probably,” he said, “it’s that good.”
