OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators have begun to adjust to life without Erik Karlsson.

Ottawa will be without its star defenceman for the remainder of the season as Karlsson underwent surgery Thursday for a lacerated Achilles after being cut during Wednesday's game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In addition to Karlsson, the Senators were already dealing with the loss of Jason Spezza who had back surgery. The Senators are also missing Milan Michalek, Peter Regin who has a chest injury and Guillaume Latendresse.

With so many players sidelined the Senators had no choice but to call in reinforcements.

New faces Friday included defenceman Eric Gryba and forwards Derek Grant and David Dziurzynski from the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators. None has NHL experience.
