Daniel Alfredsson may be down to his final chance to win his first Stanley Cup championship. He's moving his family to Detroit to try to make it happen.
Alfredsson, the now former Ottawa Senators captain, signed a one-year contract reportedly worth $5.5 million with the Detroit Red Wings on Friday to chase what he called his dream with an organization that has won the Stanley Cup four times since he came into the NHL in 1995.
Alfredsson was the longest-serving captain in the NHL at 14 years and had spent his entire 17-season NHL career in Ottawa, going to the Stanley Cup Playoffs 14 times and the Stanley Cup Final in 2007. He said it wasn't until he could start talking to other teams as a free agent earlier this week that he decided moving away from Canada's capital city would give him the best chance to win the Stanley Cup.
