Daniel Alfredsson will return to Senators for upcoming NHL season

Daniel Alfredsson will be returning for an 18th season with the Ottawa Senators.

The 40-year-old Alfredsson had been contemplating retiring after last season, but the Senators received word from his agent today letting them know he'd be back.

Alfredsson has served as Ottawa's captain for 14 seasons.

In 47 regular-season games with the team last year, the native of Goteborg, Sweden, scored 10 goals and 16 assists. In the playoffs, he scored four goals and six assists in 10 games.

The six-time NHL all star has scored 426 goals and added 682 assists in 1,178 career N-H-L regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
