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
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.
