Daniel Alfredsson made a surprise visit to the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association.

Alfredsson met up with a Midget B team during their practice. "It was a lot of fun," Alfredsson said. "The surprise of the kids -- they were just going to start scrimmaging when I stepped on the ice. And they said, 'What are you doing here?' They were so shocked." Alfredsson's visit was part of a larger NHLPA project to have professional players make surprise appearances in young players' practices during the lockout. So far at least 75 NHL players have participated.
