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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
