Senators’ Karlsson answers questions about captaincy, media spotlight

Mid-to-late August is the time of year that most NHL players--at least those who have established longer-term homes in particular locales--begin showing up near their places of employment.

Wiercioch wants to stay with Ottawa Senators

It used to be an NHL player -- especially one who had yet to establish himself as a regular -- would never think of buying a house in the city where he played the majority of his games.
