Erik Karlsson records two assists

Karlsson picked up assists on San Jose's first and third goals in their loss to the Stars.

Fantasy Impact

San Jose's veteran defenseman has two multi point outings in his last five games and is up to 33 points (10 goals, 23 assists) in 45 contests this season.

Erik Karlsson finds twine late in 5-3 home loss

Jeffrey Viel found the Sharks first goal at the end of the second period to get the team on the board to make it 4-1, just his third strike of the season. Period three got interesting, as Rudolfs Balcers picked up his seventh goal of the year to make it 4-2 before Erik Karlsson closed the gap to one, adding his own scoring strike to narrow the Avalanche’s lead to just one with 1:25 left to play. The scoring came a bit too late for the Sharks though, as the Avalanche closed it out with an empty-netter to make it 5-3 and end the comeback attempt.

Fantasy Impact

It was the defenders ninth goal of the season and 29th point as he logged 26:09 of ice time for a -2 rating. Karlsson hasn’t been much of a fantasy factor this season.

Erik Karlsson provides helper in Sharks' loss

Erik Karlsson assisted Rudolfs Balcers for the first goal of the game, but the Sharks would be shut out thereafter and go on to lose 2-1 to the Penguins.

Fantasy Impact

Karlsson has 23 points with 14 hits and 31 blocked shots on the year. There are probably better options available for fantasy managers, but he can fill a spot vacated due to Covid if necessary.

Erik Karlsson lights lamp versus Flames

Erik Karlsson's goal began San Jose's comeback in the second period and he assisted Logan Couture a few minutes later to tie the game en route to a 5-3 victory.

Fantasy Impact

Karlsson has five points in his last five games and has 21 blocked shots and seven hits on the season. He is seeing over 20 minutes of ice time per game, but his shot percentage is twice his expected so beware some regression.

Erik Karlsson scores game winner in OT versus New York

Erik Karlsson picked up his fifth goal of the season in overtime during the Sharks' 2-1 victory over the Islanders.

Fantasy Impact

Karlsson has five points in his last five games and 13 points overall. However, his shot percentage is twice his career average so the defenseman comes with a warning tag currently.
