The NHL season is in full swing, which means the race to the playoffs begins now. One team looking to finally make the leap into the playoffs are the Ottawa Senators. After missing the playoffs in the 2015-16 NHL season, the Senators will be looking at their stud defenseman Erik Karlsson to step up and lead the playoff push.
It’s still early days but the Senators have won three of their first four games and Erik Karlsson has been the reason for the team’s hot start. The Swedish defenseman is T-7th in the league on points and T-3rd in the league for assists. One reason that Karlsson may have started the season so hot is because of his smokeshow girlfriend, Melinda Currey. The Canadian-born entrepreneur has been dating Karlsson for more than two years now, and I think wedding bells are in the couples’ future.
