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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
