Ottawa 'will always be my home' says Karlsson after trade

The Ottawa Senators may have traded captain Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks, but he said that he still considers Ottawa “home.”

“It’s a very emotional and sad day for me and my family, but it’s an unfortunate part of the business,” Karlsson said at a press conference Thursday, choking back tears. “(Thank you) to the city of Ottawa for taking me in and making it my forever home.”



There was skepticism and disappointment, to say the least.
