article imageDaniel Alfredsson back in Ottawa Senators jersey - for workout

By Marcus Hondro     Aug 20, 2013 in Sports
Ottawa - Detroit Red Wing Daniel Alfredsson took part in an informal skate with teammates on — whoops, make that former teammates — on Monday in Ottawa. The former captain of the Ottawa Senators didn't look out of place — he wore a Senators jersey.
Alfredsson ducked media after the skate at the Bell Sensplex but there is a photo floating around from it of him scoring in a Senators jersey, likely the last time such a photo will be taken. The 40-year-old played 17 seasons for the Sens and was their captain for 13 and all of his 1,108 NHL points (426 goals) were scored in a Senators jersey.
Social media got some hits about Alfie back in an Ottawa jersey and many Sens fans didn't like it, with one writing that it was akin to rubbing it in. His former teammate and fellow Swede, Ottawa's newest superstar, Erik Karlsson, simply told media afterwards that to him it looked "pretty normal" and said that after all "he's been wearing one for a long time."
Alfredsson bolted the Senators for Detroit in the off-season, signing a one-year deal. Early reports say he did so because he told his former team's brass that he thought he had a better chance at the Stanley Cup, which he's never won, in Detroit.
However, Alfredsson has recently said that his reason for leaving was that the Senators twice reneged on contract promises they had made and so he took the Wings offer.
