The Ottawa Senators have traded pending UFA Erik Karlsson tot he San Jose Sharks.

San Jose gets Karlsson and Francis Perron with Ottawa getting a first round pick in 2020, 2nd round pick in 2019, forwards Chris Tierny, Rudolfs Balcers, defenseman Dylan Demelo, prospect Josh Norris and a 2021 second round pick if Karlsson re-signs with the Sharks.

The Rangers had long been mentioned as a potential match for Karlsson and then as a third team that could help facilitate a trade between Ottawa and a team that needed cap space.

San Jose is projected to have $25.7 million in cap space after this season.
