Erik Karlsson is still in San Jose, and rumors are still circulating everywhere on social media.

Two main contenders have emerged to acquire the latest Norris Trophy winner: the Hurricanes and the Penguins.


For weeks now, this has been the only information we had.

However, the situation has shifted as one team is getting closer to securing the prized defenseman.

The Picture is Getting Clearer



Elliotte Friedman stated on NHL Network that the situation is reportedly leaning towards the Pittsburgh Penguins as Karlsson's next destination.

Latest on #Karlsson Watch from Elliotte Friedman on NHL Network today: The situation ebbs and flows, but it's still Pittsburgh and Carolina. The most recent word is that it's tipping "more towards Pittsburgh" as of a couple of days ago.


That would be a major addition to help the Penguins' aging core in their pursuit of another Stanley Cup.

Honestly, we would love to see that happen, and Kyle Dubas probably feels the same!
