Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson says he expects to be '100 per cent' at the start of training camp next month.

Karlsson who suffered a serious Achilles injury last season is in Sweden participating in pre-Olympic camp and told Swedish reporter Marie Lehmann of SVT that he should be fully recovered soon as his foot remains numb from missing a few nerves.

"I'm sure I'll be able to skate 100 per cent when the season starts" said Karlsson. "This summer has been my best so far workout-wise.

"The normal feeling isn't there but I'm getting used to not normal. It's not really connecting down there."
