Karlsson registered two assists during Saturday's 4-3 triumph over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

The Swedish defenseman has been ridiculously hot to start the year with six multi-point games already this year. With a goal and 17 points in only 11 games, it's safe to say that the 27-year-old defenseman is over the foot injury that kept him on the sidelines earlier in the season and he's well on his way to another Norris Trophy-caliber season so play him every night.

Karlsson set up two goals against the Avalanche in Sweden on Friday, including the game-winner in overtime.

EDGE Analysis

What a special moment for a special player. The NHL scheduled back-to-back games between the Senators and Avalanche in Karlsson's native land, and it was icing on the cake for the puck-moving defenseman that he was able to factor into the game-winning goal that went to forward Mark Stone. Karlsson's up to 15 points (one goal, 14 assists) through 10 games, and the foot injury that delayed his campaign seems like a distant memory at this point. Use him well.

Karlsson collected two assists during Thursday's 3-1 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

The fantasy stalwart is up to 12 assists through eight games for the campaign, and this was also his fourth multi-point showing. Karlsson is a set-and-forget asset in all settings until proven otherwise.

Karlsson had an assist and three blocked shots in a 5-4 shootout loss to New Jersey on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Karlsson continues to produce at a high level whenever he's healthy, and his blocked shot total will further erase any doubts that he's at full strength. Even with Ottawa depleted right now, he remains a threat whenever he steps on the ice.

Karlsson picked up two even-strength helpers during Thursday's 5-4 win against Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The dynamic blueliner is already up to eight assists despite playing in just five games this season. Karlsson also added two blocked shots and a season-high four hits on the night. He's clearly recovered well from his offseason ankle surgery and will continue to be an elite, every night scoring threat.

Karlsson tacked on three assists and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 6-3 home win over the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second consecutive game for which Karlsson's notched a trio of assists. Even though he missed the season's first five contests with his foot injury, you can expect the elite playmaker to finish near the top of the league in points and helpers if he stays out of the trainer's room for the bulk of the year.

Karlsson registered three assists -- with two on the man advantage -- to complement eight shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime home loss to the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

Arguably the top defenseman in the entire league, Karlsson rebounded nicely from his season-debut showing against the Canucks on Tuesday, when he went minus-2 over 22:25 of ice time. The Swede logged nearly five minutes more in this latest contest, suggesting that he may finally be over the foot injury that had been affecting him since the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Karlsson (foot) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's contest against Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

The all-world defender was forced to miss the team's first five games on 2017-18 after undergoing offseason surgery to repair the foot injury he battled through last postseason. Despite waiting until Monday to even go through a practice with contact, starting Karlsson on Tuesday should be a no-brainer for fantasy owners.

Karlsson (foot) ditched the non-contact jersey for practice Monday, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Karlsson has not suited up for the Sens this season, as he continues to recover from offseason surgery. Being cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction; however, the team has not yet given him the green light to play. Ottawa is in action Tuesday against Vancouver, which could mark the defender's 2017-18 debut -- although Thursday versus New Jersey gives him a little more time to get back to 100 percent.

Karlsson (foot) could play as early as Tuesday against Vancouver but still doesn't have a definite return timeline, according to head coach Guy Boucher, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Senators enter their game against Edmonton on Saturday with a solid 2-0-2 record, so ensuring Karlsson is 100 percent healthy before returning should remain priority No. 1. Of course, fantasy owners would love to have the elite defenseman back as soon as possible, but avoiding further aggravation of the long-standing foot injury is critical to Karlsson posting another monster campaign.
