Erik Karlsson has denied a major rumor regarding him and a former teammate.

Karlsson Denies Burns Rumor

Since Brent Burns was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, a rumor has swirled around stating that he and Erik Karlsson have a bad relationship.
Yesterday, Karlsson was asked about their relationship and quickly shot it down.
Max Miller of The Hockey News reports:
Karlsson denies any reports of a strained relationship with former Sharks teammate Brent Burns.

Says they are pretty good friends.

The Offensive Hit

When Karlsson and Burns played together, both saw a drop in their production.
While they could connect for plays like this, they filled the same phenotype.
In their final season playing together, they combined for a 111-point pace. After Burns got moved to Carolina, the two combined for 162 points (101 for Karlsson, 61 for Burns).
With Karlsson getting a fresh start in Pittsburgh, he will play against Burns a lot more and will look to compete with him for a division title.
