WASHINGTON, D.C. - Erik Karlsson appreciates the support from Senators owner Eugene Melnyk.

But the Senators all-star blueliner considers the whole incident with Matt Cooke slicing Karlsson's Achilles tendon is in the rearview mirror. He'd rather close the book on that chapter of his career.

Though league officials won't confirm it, it's believed Melnyk and Senators GM Bryan Murray were at the NHL's head office in New York Monday to present the findings of an investigation the club did on whether the incident was accidental.

Karlsson, who had his tendon slashed 70% on Feb. 14 in Pittsburgh, doesn't sound like he'll be waiting to get the results from Melnyk.

"I heard about it," said Karlsson. "It's not something that I'm personally involved in or something I put any focus on."
