Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Erik Karlsson. Karlsson played a full 82 game season for the Senators less than a year after having his Achilles cut by a skate during the 2013 campaign. He established a new career high in goals with 20, finished in the NHL's top-10 in assists with 54 and led the Sens in scoring with his 74 points. Playing for Team Sweden at the Olympics, Karlsson finished in a tie for the tournament scoring lead with eight points, was named the top defenceman at the tournament and was named to the tournament all-star team. He received Ottawa's nomination for the Masterton Trophy from the local chapter of the PHWA for such a strong return from injury but was ultimately not named one of the three finalists.

Taking a look at the less conventional statistics, Karlsson was one of the Sens' top possession players as well with the Senators taking 54.8 per cent of the shot attempts with Karlsson on the ice. Defensively, he saw his role on the penalty kill expand, playing roughly 25 percent of the team's shorthanded minutes.

To recap his season, here's Erik Karlsson one-on-one with Sens TV.
