I don't know of them offhand but I know there are guys in the NHL who have returned after a torn Achilles and I don't recall there being a huge drop-off.
Also as someone pointed out it wasn't a complete tear and the most devastating part of that injury is the shortening of the tendon and that isn't the case in Karlsson's situation.
Lastly, even if he did lose some speed he would still be the class of the NHL.
