Senators Camp: Alfredsson shows off wheels
Kanata, ON -- Training camp kicked off Saturday for the Ottawa Senators, with three teams taking the ice at the Bell Sensplex for practices and a scrimmage.

Daniel Alfredsson headed up Team Kyte (each squad is named after an Ottawa alumnus) and appeared to be skating well after recovering from off-season back surgery.

"I felt good," Alfredsson said. "I felt better than I expected, so that's good. It was a good first day and I'm real happy with it."

The Senators' captain demonstrated that he still has wheels in the Team Kyte practice, when he blew past defenceman Sergei Gonchar in a two-on-one drill. Stephane Da Costa, who showed his own speed during the Oshawa Rookie Tournament, also struggled to keep up with the 38-year-old veteran.
Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
