After appearing that he was on the verge of signing a deal with the Philadelphia Flyers – he was even listed on the Flyers’ training camp roster — veteran forward Dan Cleary chose to re-sign with the Red Wings for one year.
Cleary has worn No. 11 in Detroit since joining the team in 2005, while Alfredsson donned the No. 11 with the Sens for nearly two decades and also wears the number when he represents his native Sweden in international competitions.
There is no word yet on what number Alfredsson will wear for the Red Wings.
