OTTAWA SUN: Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson had an impressive debut with Finland’s Jokerit, scoring the game-opening goal as Jokerit downed HPK 5-1.
TSN.CA: NY Rangers winger Rick Nash is listed as “day-to-day” as an MRI showed no serious damage to a shoulder he injured during a game with HC Davos on Friday.
