Erik Karlsson inks 8-year deal to stay in San Jose

Erik Karlsson, the most illustrious UFA of 2019, is staying in San Jose.

As a result of Karlsson re-signing with San Jose, the Ottawa Senators will receive a second-round pick instead of a first-round pick in 2021 since the Sharks did not advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Karlsson's purported deal will make him the highest-paid defenseman in the National Hockey League, besting the eight-year, $88 million deal the Kings signed Drew Doughty to in 2018.

When Karlsson was eligible to sign an extension last summer, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty signed an eight-year, $88 million extension.

"We are extremely pleased that Erik and his wife Melinda have committed to the San Jose Sharks and that they have done so prior to July 1", general manager Doug Wilson said. "He is a difference maker who consistently makes the players around him better".

"I'm super excited to continue my journey with the Sharks", Karlsson said.

Facebook won't directly control the coin, nor will the individual members of the consortium known as the Libra Association. Bowles will be taking up his new role as Facebook's London-based director of public policy in September 2019.

The 2018-19 season was Karlsson's first in the Bay Area after a September trade from Ottawa, and the Swede finished with three goals and 45 points in 53 games.

Karlsson underwent groin surgery following the post-season, but has already begun rehabilitation and is expected to fully recover in time for the 2019-2020 campaign.

Further to @TSNBobMcKenzie's report on Erik Karlsson, I'm told the deal is indeed done: 8 years max deal, north of $11 million per season... the Sharks with a huge move in keeping the superstar D from hitting the market.

The Sharks acquired the six-time All-Star and two-time Norris Trophy victor from the Senators in September. "But the dedication I witnessed from my teammates, coaches, staff and organization showed me that we all have a great future ahead of us, and that we are capable of fighting for that championship year in and year out".

But the Sharks, who reached the Western Conference final before losing to the St. Louis Blues, have apparently done enough to convince Karlsson to sign long term.

Karlsson's big cap hit will make it hard for the team to bring back some other names from last year's roster that are in search of new deals - including Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton, Joonas Donskoi, Timo Meier (RFA) and Gustav Nyquist.
