Longtime Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson dressed for the warm-up with the Senators after signing a one-day contract with the club as part of his retirement announcement Thursday.

A sixth-round pick (No. 133) by the Senators in the 1994 NHL Draft, Alfredsson spent 17 of his 18 seasons in Ottawa, capturing the Calder Memorial Trophy in 1995-96, the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 2011-12 and the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award in 2012-13. He also led the Senators to the Presidents’ Trophy in 2002-03 and the Stanley Cup Final in 2007, when he led all players with 14 goals and 22 points in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Among his many accomplishments, Alfredsson ranks first in Senators history in goals (426), assists (682), points (1,108) and games played (1,178). He returns to Ottawa after a one-season stint with the Detroit Red Wings; he had 18 goals and 31 assists in 68 games.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist left the game against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday midway through the second period with an apparent upper-body injury.

With a little less than 9:00 remaining in the period, Hornqvist was hit by Canucks defenseman Ryan Stanton near the blue line closest to the Vancouver zone as play shifted back the other direction at Consol Energy Center.

Hornqvist immediately skated toward the bench and walked down the runway to the locker room.


Alfredsson skates with Senators one last time

OTTAWA -- It was a fitting ending to Daniel Alfredsson's last skate with the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Alfredsson, who's been dealing with recurring back problems, signed a ceremonial agreement earlier in the day that allowed him to retire as a member of the Senators, for whom he played 17 seasons.

He then skated in warm-ups with Ottawa as they prepared to play the New York Islanders at Canadian Tire Centre.

With a minute to go in the pregame skate, Alfredsson and the Senators engaged in a giant game of keep-away, the player with the puck trying to hang on to it against his teammates.

Keep-away was one of Alfredsson's favorites. It was usually the way he and a few of his teammates would conclude practice.

With the Foo Fighters' "My Hero" playing over the sound system, the fans cheered as Alfredsson grabbed the puck and stickhandled his way through a few of the other players.

It was a touching moment as Alfredsson, who played the 2013-14 season with the Detroit Red Wings, returned to the city where he started his NHL career to say thank you and goodbye to Senators fans.

"Oh my God, that could've been one of my best skates ever," Alfredsson said. "Just basically knowing that this is the last time I get to experience this and in this atmosphere. I couldn't have played, I'm not in good enough shape. But I skated a couple laps and you feel like, 'Maybe a few shifts.' It gets the juices flowing, the energy that's in the rink. It's incredible. "

ANAHEIM -- Ilya Bryzgalov admits he hasn't been staying in optimum playing condition. To hear him describe it, he's been in shutdown mode, living in southern New Jersey and coaching his son's hockey team.

He was driving his son to a hockey tournament when his agent called him with a suggestion.

"[He said] 'Maybe you should stop coaching and maybe you [should] have a desire to return to the NHL and play hockey,'" Bryzgalov said.

The agent told him his former team, the Anaheim Ducks, were interested in giving him a professional tryout contract, and Bryzgalov was excited at the opportunity to come home. He skated at Honda Center before he spoke with reporters by phone Thursday.

Alfredsson announces retirement after 18 seasons

Chris Stevenson - Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Daniel Alfredsson's remarkable NHL career will come full circle when he takes his final laps on the ice at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday.

Alfredsson, who was Senators captain for 13 of his 17 seasons in Ottawa, signed a ceremonial agreement Thursday morning and announced he will retire as a Senator.

He will wear the jersey he wore for his last home game as a Senator in 2013 and participate in the warm-up before the Senators play the New York Islanders.

Alfredsson left the Senators to sign a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings for the 2013-14 season, but recurring back problems led to his decision to retire.

"It's going to be really cool. I'm looking forward to it and it's going to be a great experience," Alfredsson said of skating as a Senator one last time. "Being out there with the boys again is going to be a special feeling. I'm going to try to not fall down."
