Daniel Alfredsson is "honored and humbled" to see that the Ottawa Senators will retire his number this season.
The Sens made the announcement during a news conference on Tuesday."I’m extremely humbled," Alfredsson said. "It sounds really good when Mr. Melnyk and (master of ceremonies) Gord (Wilson) talk about what I achieved with all the goals and points ... I played for a long time so you have to get old to do that. Nothing would have been possible without the teammates, the coaches, the staff, family and (his) parents from an early stage. That’s what came to mind when I was told I was going to get this honor." The 43-year-old scored 429 goals and 1108 points (both are franchise records) while playing for the Sens. The ceremony will take place before a game against the Red Wings on December 29th. Aug 17 - 9:23 AM

The Ottawa Senators announced that they'll be retiring Daniel Alfredsson's number 11 this season.

The ceremony will take place before Ottawa's home game against Detroit on Dec. 29. Alfredsson scored a franchise-best 429 goals and 1108 points during his time with the Senators. He served as team captain from 1999-2000 to 2012-13. Daniel is an iconic figure in the history of our franchise. We are very excited to announce that the Senators Player Honouring Committee has unanimously decided that as we embark on the Ottawa Senators 25th season in the NHL, this would be the perfect time to have Daniel’s number 11 raised to the rafters of Canadian Tire Centre," said Senators owner and chief executive officer Eugene Melnyk. "Daniel has consistently demonstrated class and excellence throughout his NHL career so it is only fitting his jersey number be retired to hang alongside the number 8 of legendary Frank Finnigan."

Daniel Alfredsson has agreed to a one-year extension with Ottawa to continue serving as the team's senior advisor of hockey operations.

"It is great to have Daniel back as part of the Senators' hockey department," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "It is wonderful to know that Daniel and his family are returning to Ottawa and will once again make the nation's capital their home. I look forward to the contributions Daniel will continue to make with our hockey club and in the community."

The Ottawa Senators have appointed former captain Daniel Alfredsson to their front office staff as the team’s senior advisor of hockey operations.

Alfredsson's name reigns over Ottawa's leader boards across most offensive categories, including games played, goals, assists, and of course, points. So it's no surprise their recently retired and beloved former captain would "begin the second part of his storied hockey career right where he belongs – with the Senators," as owner Eugene Melnyk put it. Alfredsson will be serving as an adviser to GM Bryan Murray and will range in responsibilities from scouting to player development all at the NHL level.

Daniel Alfredsson is expected to meet with Senators general manager Bryan Murray within the next couple of weeks to figure out a front-office role, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.

The Senators aren’t set on giving him a title, but they intend to make sure he gets a role where he can learn the ropes of different aspects in the front office. Ottawa wants to make an announcement before the season starts.

Wearing a suit is a different kind of challenge than wearing a sweater for the Ottawa Senators, as it seems Daniel Alfredsson will learn.

The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch spoke with anonymous league executives who wonder if Alfredsson will put in the work to be a successful front office figure in Ottawa. We've seen examples of great players failing (Wayne Gretzky) and flourishing (Steve Yzerman), so it's all about what Alfredsson is capable of and willing to do.

Daniel Alfredsson is reportedly close to finalizing a role in Ottawa's hockey operations department.

It didn't look like Alfredsson left the organization on the best terms before he signed with Detroit Red Wings for the 2013-14 campaign, but the two sides were able to reconcile any differences. An official title for Alfredsson isn't known at this time. His role and addition to the team in a front-office capacity is expected to be announced by the Senators prior to the start of training camp.

When Daniel Alfredsson does return to the NHL, it might be as a coach.

Alfredsson was regarded as more likely to take a front office job, but he doesn't want to rule out the possibility of pursuing a career in coaching. "I really enjoyed coaching the boys and it was a big learning curve for me as well," Alfredsson said. "You know it's easy when you see things on the ice, 'Just do this' but you have to be able to explain it to eight year-olds or 12 year-olds in a way they might understand it and I really enjoy that. It's challenging, and I'm learning a lot from it too. I think I'm helping the kids become better and thinking in a different way than maybe I have with other coaches." He's not putting a timetable on himself, but he's not expected to return to the NHL in time for the 2015-16 campaign.

Former Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson had some nice things to say about current captain Erik Karlsson.

"I think Erik has been superb, handling everything that’s happened this year and being where (the Senators) are," Alfredsson said of the current captain. "Outstanding." Karlsson lived with Alfredsson when he was a rookie in Ottawa, and he has since grown into one of the best offensive defensemen in the league. The 24-year-old has one goal and four points in five playoff games in 2015. The Senators are looking for force a seventh game in their series against Montreal on Sunday.

It was reported last week that Alfredsson had decided not to play in 2014-15 so this was the logical next step. Our hats go off to an excellent player and an incredibly productive career.

Nothing has changed for Detroit when it comes to the possibility of signing Daniel Alfredsson.

"We're not putting any timetable on it," GM Ken Holland said. "Daniel said he was feeling good but is not to the point where he can talk to me about what would be his next move. I haven't heard from Daniel (since). We're giving him time. Nothing has changed." The only condition may be that the Red Wings would need to see Alfredsson skate with the team for two to three weeks before presenting him with a new contract. Detroit's offense could certainly use the boost that Alfredsson bring, especially on the power play.

Daniel Alfredsson isn't skating at Joe Louis Arena anymore and it appears as though he might retire.

"He was feeling pretty good but was getting frustrated because he wasn't getting over the hump," Detroit GM Ken Holland said. "He would feel good, push it and have a setback. He was frustrated because he was not able to get to the point where he wants to be at to tell me he wants to practice with us." Alfredsson isn't sure if his situation will change, but the Red Wings want to give him more time. The veteran winger hasn't spoken publicly about the matter. A decision on his future may come shortly if he isn't able to fully regain his strength.
