Erik Karlsson Facts

Karlsson is known for his offensive ability. He is a defenseman blessed with excellent hockey sense, confidence and coolness. Everything looks so easy and natural when Karlsson has the puck under control in the offensive zone. He is a terrific passer and an outstanding push rusher.

The knock on Karlsson is his defensive game and size. However, his all-world skating and anticipation allows him to be alright defensively.

The fact that Karlsson likes to get involved physically and can deliver rather good hits is a big plus. Now that he's added a considerate amount of bulk, his physical play is more effective. - Elite Prospects (2015)

There are definitely some things you can implement into your game, but there is no other Erik Karlsson on planet Earth

Chris Wideman (Ottawa) 2017

I’d challenge anyone in this league to say that there was a more spectacular player or even defenceman

Pierre Dorion (Ottawa GM) 2017

This is a guy you’re going to look at for the next 50 years and go 'wow’. This is going to be one of the greats
