The Detroit Red Wings will have veteran forward Daniel Alfredsson back in the lineup Friday against the Montreal Canadiens as they attempt to build off a shootout win Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Alfredsson had missed the past six games with a back injury. He has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games in his first season with the Red Wings. During his career with the Ottawa Senators, he had 31 goals and 105 points in 89 games against the Canadiens.
"It's been really good three days of skating and no issues so I'm ready to go," Alfredsson told MLive.com. "It's always frustrating to be out and now be able to skate like I have and have no issues it feels great actually."
