A new series on CBC Television will follow some of hockey's top players not just on, but off the ice as well.

The Senators' Erik Karlsson is one of the two dozen NHL players chosen to be part of the series, starting Jan. 23 on CBC TV.

On Monday, Karlsson spoke one-on-one with the CBC's Sandra Abma.
