Erik Karlsson, Elite Defenseman, Becomes Trade Target as San Jose Sharks Seek New Opportunities

Erik Karlsson's outstanding performance as a defenseman during the season has made him a standout player, etching his name in recent NHL history. Despite his remarkable 101-point campaign, the San Jose Sharks, unable to make the postseason, are now actively considering trading the seasoned 33-year-old.
The decision to potentially part ways with Karlsson is not solely based on his on-ice abilities but also influenced by the significant financial implications of his contract.

His upcoming 2023-24 season salary of $11,500,000, with a corresponding cap hit, poses a challenge for the Sharks. Karlsson's contract, totaling $92,000,000, features a combination of signing bonuses and base salary, spanning from the 2019-20 season to the conclusion of the 2026-27 campaign.
As of the latest update on June 16, 2023, the San Jose Sharks are actively engaging with Karlsson to explore trade options during the offseason. The organization is committed to navigating the complex trade landscape in search of a suitable destination that can both accommodate Karlsson's exceptional skills and his substantial contract.
