Daniel Alfredsson RW DET 3 Days
Daniel Alfredsson was happy to close out a win for Detroit against his ex-Senators teammates in his return to Ottawa Sunday night.
"It was nice to kind of seal the game there, because they were pushing and I was thinking, 'here come the Pesky Sens again,'" said Alfredsson. "But we were lucky to get a bounce there and I was able to get free." He scored into an empty net to end the Sens' comeback try and it gave him a goal against all 30 NHL teams. Alfredsson also had an assist in the contest. He received some boos as the match went on, but he was welcomed back nicely at the start of the game.

Daniel Alfredsson scored a goal and collected an assist in his return to Ottawa, as his new team the Detroit Red Wings beat the Senators 4-2 on Sunday.
He's now closing in on a point-per-game with 21 (seven goals, 14 assists) in 23 games. He has five of those points in his past two contests. He might be getting a little lucky lately (including tonight's empty-netter), but he's still generating fantasy value after all these years ... just in a different uniform.

Daniel Alfreddson likley won't get the chance to play against his former team Saturday.
Alfredsson is making progress in his recovery from a groin pull but the Wings won't take any chances with him to avoid re-injury. It's too bad, because we're sure Alfie would have liked to avenge the Red Wings' October 23rd loss to his former club. Barring a setback, Alfredsson should be able to return Wednesday against the Bruins.

"It was good to get back on the ice today and work out, and we'll see how it is (Tuesday)."
