When the San Jose Sharks acquired Erik Karlsson in 2018, it was considered a huge blow to the Ottawa Senators’ credibility and a major win for San Jose.

Injuries have also played a factor, with checking line forward Zemgus Girgensons sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury in training camp. Two weeks ago, the Sabres lost two defensemen: Jake McCabe sustained a season-ending knee injury and William Borgen was sidelined indefinitely with a broken forearm.
