So the 2011 all star game is now over, and Ottawa is up next year, so time to wrap up the weekend as it pertained for the Senators. To be honest, there wasn't much action for young Erik, as he may as well been almost invisible this weekend.
On Friday he was picked last amongst defenceman, on Saturday all he did in the skills competition was make a few one timer passes to Zdeno Chara and giggle about everything Daniel Sedin said to him, though he did score a pretty sick shootout goal before not getting a shot off in round 2. And today during the actual game, he had zero goals, zero assists, good for zero points and an even +/- in 20 mins of ice time.
Basically he was invisible, but still a good experience for the youngster, even if he didn't get to suit up next to his idol in Lidstrom. Don't worry, he will get his chance to play against him on Wednesday when Detroit plays at SBP.
Thoughts on Karlsson's ASG weekend?
UPDATE @8:12pm - The weekend was not a total loss as young Erik got some pub as the picture for Deadspin's ASG coverage open thread.
