Karlsson (personal) will return to the Senators lineup on Saturday.

Karlsson has missed the last two games following the death of his son. Despite the tragedy, Karlsson wants to play tonight against the Hurricanes, so he will replace Marian Gaborik as the Senators go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen. Karlsson has been hot as of late, picking up 20 points (3G / 17A) in his last 17 games.

Karlsson (foot) will make his season debut on Tuesday.

Karlsson missed the first five games of the season, but took off his no-contact sweater on Monday and skated alongside Dion Phaneuf in practice. After the session Karlsson confirmed that he will make his season debut on Tuesday. The Senators have yet to lose in regulation (3-0-2) and getting their captain back will be a massive boost. Karlsson is coming off of a season in which he recorded 17 goals and 54 assists (71 points) in 77 contests.

Karlsson (foot) ditched his no-contact sweater and skated on the top-pair in Monday’s practice.

Karlsson has missed the first five games of the season as he recovers from offseason foot surgery, but he was cleared for contact and skated as a regular in today’s practice which suggests his season debut is just around the corner. The Senators have done a really good job without their captain, starting 3-0-2 and winning all three of their contests on their recent three-game western Canada road-trip. Ottawa hosts the Canucks tomorrow and it looks like Karlsson will be ready to go.

Karlsson (foot) returned to the ice this weekend; still no timetable for his return.

Karlsson skated for the first time since undergoing foot surgery this offseason on Saturday, but was given Sunday and Monday off. Despite returning to the ice, the Senators still have not put a timetable on Karlsson’s return, but one has to believe that he has a chance to be ready for the season opener on October 5th.
