Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson was held without a point for the 10th consecutive game Wednesday night during the team's 3-0 loss at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks.

The streak is the longest drought in Karlsson's illustrious career, which was previously held at eight games, set during his 2009-10 rookie season.

Unsurprisingly, the Senators have struggled amid the lack of offense from their best player, compiling a 1-8-1 record during those contests.

Amazingly, Karlsson still has 17 points in 21 games despite the cold spell. His overall individual performance may be an afterthought, though, as the Sens continue to fall in the standings, currently sitting in sixth in the Atlantic Division.
