Erik Karlsson will have an MRI and X-rays on his injured left heel next week, but the Ottawa Senators defenseman said Saturday he expects to fully recover.

Karlsson played the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs with two hairline fractures in his foot.

"I'm going to have to go over that this week," Karlsson said at Canadian Tire Centre, where the Senators cleaned out their lockers after being eliminated with a 3-2 double-overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final on Thursday. "Haven't really done much the previous two days. I'm going to go get an MRI and some X-rays done next week, and we'll go from there, but hopefully it shouldn't be an issue come the start of next year."

Karlsson revealed after Ottawa advanced past the Boston Bruins in the first round that he sustained the injury blocking a shot late in the regular season. In the postseason, he played after having his foot frozen and being injected with painkillers.
