Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators is our fifteenth hockey hottie for #30daysofhockeyhotties
Erik is from Sweden, a growing theme in these posts. At the 2009 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships Karlsson was selected to the all-star team, and was named the tournament’s best defenseman. Erik’s phenomenal play carried over into the NHL where he was the recipient of the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman in 2012.
Karlsson also got married recently 7-6-12 to his wife Therese in Sweden. Congratulations to the Mr & Mrs! We wish them all the best!
