Ian Mendes Takes Erik Karlsson to Ikea

Sportsnet's Ian Mendes took the Senators' first-round selection to Ikea to get to know the prospect a little better.

The entire article can be found here.

As we cruise down the 417 highway towards IKEA, our conversation flows effortlessly from topic to topic. Erik explains how he worked out with NHL players last summer near his hometown of Landsbro, Sweden. He proudly mentions that he scored three times on five penalty shots against New York Rangers superstar Henrik Lundqvist during one session.
Though these pieces are largely fluff, it still offers some insight into the prospect that hockey fans will surely enjoy over a long, hockey-less summer.

Ballhype: hype it up!
