San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson is expected to be sidelined at least two months after undergoing surgery to repair a small muscle tear in his left forearm, the team announced Tuesday.

Karlsson’s surgery was performed Monday at Kaiser Permanente in San Jose. The team announced the two-time Norris Trophy recipient will be re-evaluated in mid-March.

Karlsson, 31, has recorded 26 points (eight goals, 18 assists) in 33 games this season.

He has 651 points (151 goals, 500 assists) in 821 career games with the Ottawa Senators (2009-18) and Sharks.
