Daniel Alfredsson will be in a very familiar place Sunday night.
The 40-year-old right wing will return to Canada's capital city when the Detroit Red Wings visit the Ottawa Senators (5:30 p.m., NHLN-U.S., TSN, RDS, FS-D+). Alfredsson spent his first 17 NHL seasons with the Senators before signing with the Red Wings as a free agent last summer.
Alfredsson is the Senators' all-time leader in games played (1,178), goals (426), assists (682) and points (1,108).
"I think I'm anxious to play the game," Alfredsson said after practicing with the Red Wings at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday. "What happens is going to happen. It's a very different situation from anything I've ever gone through before, so I don't know what to expect or what's going to happen, but I'm hopeful that it's going to be a good night."
