Alfredsson still ailing, unsure of return date
Daniel Alfredsson confirmed on Thursday that he is still suffering from concussion symptoms. There is no timetable set for his return.
KANATA, Ont. -- Daniel Alfredsson spoke to the media Thursday for the first time since receiving a hit to the head from the Rangers' Wojtek Wolski last Saturday.

The Ottawa Senators captain appeared woozy after the hit, and has not played since. Although he is not experiencing headaches, Alfredsson confirmed on Thursday that he is still suffering from concussion symptoms. There is no timetable set for his return.

SOG: 29 | +/-: -3
"I'm OK, not great,” Alfredsson said. "If I'm at home with the kids and I do too much, I get light-headed and a little dizzy and I have to sit down for a bit. Until that's gone, I'm not going to do anything physical."

He may lack a solid date for return, but the winger remains positive that he will rejoin his teammates in the near future.

"It's a different feeling. I'm hoping that in a few more days, it's going to be a lot better."

The Senators, who had a six-game winning streak snapped Tuesday against Boston are back in action Friday night, hosting the Montreal Canadiens, and again Saturday when the Buffalo Sabres visit Scotiabank Place.

Ottawa is off to a 7-6-0 start, with its 14 points good for second place in the Northeast Division.
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.
