(TSX / STATS) -- Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson will make his season debut in Tuesday's home game versus the Vancouver Canucks, the team announced Monday.

Karlsson missed the Senators' first five games of the campaign after undergoing offseason surgery to fix tendons in his left foot. Ottawa has played well in the absence of the two-time Norris Trophy recipient, winning three straight to improve to 3-0-2 on the season.

Karlsson recorded 18 points while playing in all 19 postseason games last spring for the Senators in their run to the Eastern Conference final.
