Star defenceman Erik Karlsson’s career will likely still thrive, despite his season being cut short, says a sports expert.
Karlsson’s left Achilles tendon was lacerated by Pittsburgh Penguins’ winger Matt Cooke’s skate Wednesday night.
Recovery is expected to take three to four months following Karlsson’s Thursday morning surgery in Ottawa.
