Speculation mounts after Karlsson keeps puck from last home game





As speculation builds about the future of no. 65, Sens fans were quick to surmise Monday could very well have been Erik Karlsson's final game as an Ottawa Senator.

Just after the Sens suffered a brutal 6-5 loss in their last home game against the Winnipeg Jets, the beloved captain picked up the game puck and stuffed it down his pants as he skated off the ice.

Fans reacted on Twitter with disappointment about what it could mean as questions are being raised about whether or not the star player will stay on with the team next season.

Others were more optimistic.

Maybe Karlsson just wanted a cool souvenir from a fun game.

But some felt it was a clear sign Karlsson is on the way out. 

Karlsson realizes there's cameras in the arena, correct? Lol.

Karlsson taking the puck and then skating around looking at th crowd meaningfully? Not something my heavy heart needs right now

Wow! Erik Karlsson grabbing puck at the end of a loss in final home game of the season? Seems rather cryptic. Let the speculation begin in earnest. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Sens?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Sens</a>

Realistically, Karlsson is probably grabbing that puck because he really has no idea how things might play out this summer. But still. Siiiiiigh. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Sens?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Sens</a>

Oh no... Karlsson picked up the puck. Damnit. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Sens?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Sens</a>
