Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators is the #1 defense points-only hockey pool pick. He is a Swedish born player who is 23 years old. A couple seasons ago, he scored 25 points more than any defensemen, winning the Norris Trophy. He may not be rock solid in the defensive zone, but he is dynamite in the offensive zone. He is quick on his skates and effective with his breakout passes. A downside to drafting is he is coming off major surgery of his Achilles tendon. He claims that he recovered fully.
