With no relief in sight for his ailing bad back, Daniel Alfredsson is set to retire on Dec. 4th in Ottawa, and possibly as a member of the Senators.
Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun has confirmed that the Senators will hold a ceremony for its former captain prior to the club’s game versus the New York Islanders at the Canadian Tire Centre on Dec. 4.
Alfredsson spent the 2013-14 season with the Detroit Red Wings following a dramatic split with the Senators. The 41-year old has totaled 444 goals and 1,157 points in 1,246 games over his career.
It is possible that the Alfredsson signs a contract with the Senators to retire as a member of the team he spent 17 seasons with.
