Karlsson chasing milestone Top-10 scoring spot

If Erik Karlsson finishes in the top 10 of NHL scoring, he’ll be the first defenceman to do that since Paul Coffey, then of the Pittsburgh Penguins, did it in the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season, and Brian Leetch of the New York Rangers did it in 1991-92.
Coffey was tied for sixth with 58 points, while Leetch was ninth with 102 points.
Al MacInnis of the Calgary Flames finished ninth in 1990-91 with 103 points, and Coffey, again with the Penguins, finished ninth in 1989-90 with 103 points.
Karlsson went into Wednesday’s game sitting in ninth spot with 69 points.
