This tweet just came across my twitterfeed and made my day a lot better:
Erik Karlsson skates! Less than 2 months after slicing his achilles, Karlsson looked very good in a workout this am with MarcPower. #cbcott

Even if Karlsson can’t get back before the playoffs, his return to the ice should at least bolster the mood of his teammates who haven’t had a lot of positive lately.
Karlsson getting on the ice, means he could concievably return at some point, but it is too early to put a timetable on it.
