STOCKHOLM — IIHF.com is proud to offer a 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Fan Q&A with Daniel Alfredsson, the captain of Sweden.
Known for his excellent two-way play, the 39-year-old forward from the NHL’s Ottawa Senators — also the National Hockey League's current longest-serving captain — had a pair of assists in Sweden’s opening 3-1 win over Norway, and added the game-winning goal in a 6-4 victory over Denmark on Monday.
In 54 career World Championship games through today, Alfredsson has 19 goals and 23 assists. At the Worlds, he has twice won both silver (1995, 2004) and bronze (1999, 2001). But the four-time Olympian’s crowning international achievement is Olympic Winter Games gold from Turin in 2006.
This product of Frölunda Gothenburg has played 1,131 NHL games to date and became the 75th player in league history to reach the 1,000-point plateau on Oct. 22, 2010. He also scored his 400th career NHL goal on Dec. 30, an overtime game-winner against the Calgary Flames.
Feel free to ask Alfredsson about anything you’ve always wanted to know about him: about representing Sweden, life in the NHL or his life away from the rink.
