Update: Karlsson signed a seven-year, $45.5 million extension with the Senators on Tuesday, the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Recommendation: The 22-year-old defenseman notched 78 points (19G, 59A) and a plus-16 ratio in 81 games this past season. Senators owner Euguene Melnyk said in a press release that he feels this commitment will be great for both sides, and went on to say, "Erik is the type of player and person that embodies an Ottawa Senator, and we are confident that on a personal basis, he will quickly become a role model for many of our young Sens fans and a great contributor to our community."
