The Ottawa Senators have announced that their Captain Daniel Alfredsson will play his 17 career NHL season.
Im excited to get ready for another season, said Alfredsson. Ive been training for about a month and a half and my body feels a lot further ahead of where it was last year at this point. I expect to come into camp stronger and fitter than I did last year.
This is great news for the Sens, their fans, and Alfie fantasy owners. Alfredsson will return to the second line and play with Kyle Turris. The left wing position was opened up by the Foligno trade and potential candidates to see top six duties include Guillaume Latendresse, Jakob Silfverberg, Mika Zibanejad, and Mark Stone.
This is also a major boost for the Sens power play as Alfredsson runs the power play with Spezza.
