Alfredsson out Tuesday with hip injury
Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson will not be in the lineup when his team visits the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night.

Alfredsson, who has 5 points in eight games this season, is reportedly suffering from a hip flexor that will keep him sidelined as Ottawa goes for its third win in a row. As a result of the injury, Ottawa has called up forward Kaspars Daugavins from its AHL affiliate in Binghamton.

Alfredsson was quoted in Monday's Ottawa Sun as saying, "I'm feeling okay, (but) the last four or five days I have felt my hip flexor get weaker and weaker. … It's at a point where if I look after this now, it won't become more of an issue."

The 38-year-old Swede expects to be back in the lineup Thursday when the Senators host the Florida Panthers.
Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
