Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson named to NHL's All-Decade Second Team

The 2010s were pretty good to Erik Karlsson.

The Sharks' defenseman was named to six All-Star teams, won two Norris trophies and signed a lucrative eight-year, $92 million contract last summer to stay in San Jose.

Now, Karlsson has been named to the NHL's All-Decade Second Team.

Paired with Karlsson on the Second-Team blue line is Boston's Zdeno Chara.

Los Angeles' Drew Doughty and Chicago's Duncan Keith were named as the defensemen on the NHL's All-Decade First Team.

From Jan. 1, 2010 through Dec. 31, 2019, Karlsson played in 623 games with the Ottawa Senators and Sharks. He recorded 120 goals and 422 assists during that span.

Last month, NBC Sports ranked Karlsson as the third-best player of the decade behind Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.

At just 29 years old, Karlsson has plenty of good hockey ahead of him, and the Sharks are hoping he can help bring the first Stanley Cup to the Bay Area sometime in the near future.

NHL rumors: Sharks trade for defenseman Brandon Davidson from Flames

The Sharks were wheeling and dealing at the NHL trade deadline, and it didn't stop when they shipped Barclay Goodrow to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a first-round pick.

San Jose also acquired defenseman Brandon Davidson from the Calgary Flames for future considerations.

The 28-year-old has played in just seven games this season for the Flames and has been a bottom tier defenseman during his career.

He's on a $700K expiring deal with around $150K left, so this amounts to the Sharks just needed a body after trading Patrick Marleau, Brendon Dillon and Goodrow.

The Sharks went into the deadline without a first-round pick.
