Sens' Karlsson won't play until he's 100 percent, even if it's not until November
Charles LeClaire / USA Today Sports

It's looking less and less likely that Erik Karlsson will be ready to play opening night.

The Ottawa Senators' all-world defenseman continues to recover from offfseason surgery to repair torn tendons in his foot, an injury he played through during the postseason. And at a team golf tournament Monday, he reiterated he won't rush a return to the ice.

"I'm going to come back when I'm 100 percent - whether that's in October or November," Karlsson said, per Ian Mendes of TSN 1200.

Still, he doesn't appear too concerned about the process.

The Senators are scheduled to open their season Oct. 5, with 11 additional games over the course of the month.
