OTTAWA, Ont. – A rough-voiced Daniel Alfredsson took his place at the forefront of a media scrum for the final time this season, and still provided no indication as to whether he would return to the Ottawa Senators for a 17th year.
The 39-year-old admitted that he's been missing some time with his four young sons, which has been bothering him, but his boys want to see him continue his career.
"It feels at times when you play a lot, you're tired and you have a lot of practices … when you're home I don't have the energy I would like to play with the kids," Alfredsson said. "I miss a lot of their activities – that's going to play part of it. I'm sure the kids would like to see me play another year, there's no question."
