"I've played a long time in this league and played a lot of playoff games but haven't won the Stanley Cup. That's what you dream about and that's the only reason I'm still playing, I guess." Alfredsson has 18 goals and 49 points in 67 games this year.

Daniel Alfredsson had an assist in Detroit's 4-1 loss on Sunday.

Mar 17 - 9:10 AM

Daniel Alfredsson remains without a point since returning to NHL action, as he was unable to help the Detroit Red Wings get on the scoreboard in a 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

The 41-year-old hasn't scored a point in his last four games, and has only provided six SOG and a -1 rating in that span. It's unclear how much offense the veteran will be able to create with key Red Wings out of the lineup.
Mar 9 - 3:19 PM

Daniel Alfredsson is having such a good time playing for the Red Wings he may return for the 2014-15 season.

The Wings only signed the former Senators' captain to a one-year $5.5 million contract believing that he would only play one more year. However, Alfredsson has been effective in Detroit with 37 points and is certainly enjoying his time in the Motor City. "It was a big change moving and it took a little bit to get accustomed to everything, for it to feel natural coming to the rink, but I feel very welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed my time here," Alfredsson said. "As far as everything around the city, I have no questions about my future here. If my body and mind tells me there's more to give, I would definitely look forward to an opportunity to come back." This will certainly be a story to watch in the offseason.

Daniel Alfredsson lost some teeth in the second period of Tuesday's loss to New Jersey when a stick clipped him in the mouth.

Mar 5 - 10:03 AM

Daniel Alfredsson and his old pal Erik Karlsson are taking charge of a wounded Sweden squad, leading them into the quarterfinals with a 3-0-0 record.

Alfredsson leads the Swedish forwards with two goals and an assist through three games. Karlsson is playing in MVP form with three goals and five points through three games. Sweden is relying more heavily on Alfredsson, who won a gold medal in 2006, to lead the offense after injuries to Henrik Zetterberg, Henrik Sedin and Johan Franzen.

Daniel Alfredsson scored the only goal in Sweden's 1-0 victory over Switzerland on Friday.

Erik Karlsson and Patrik Berglund each registered an assist on Alfredsson's marker. Sweden normally superb offense has taken a serious hit due to the injuries to Johan Franzen, Henrik Sedin, and Henrik Zetterberg.
Feb 14 - 9:47 AM

Daniel Alfredsson was used on the point alongside Erik Karlsson on the power play for Sweden in Wednesday's tournament-opening win against the Czech Republic.

It was somewhat surprising that Phoenix blueliner Oliver Ekman-Larsson didn't get a chance to play with the top unit with the man advantage, but it's hard to argue with the result the team enjoyed in the game. Look for the veteran Alfredsson to maintain his role for the time being with Ekman-Larsson waiting with bated breath for an opportunity.
Feb 13 - 9:03 PM

Daniel Alfredsson potted a goal for Detroit in its 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday night.

The 41-year-old now has goals in two straight games (four shots in each) and three points in his last four games. He's really been just as advertised for the Red Wings this season -- if not better when you consider he's not getting any closer to his "prime." Alfredsson has 14 goals and 35 points. Tomas Jurco picked up the other goal. Pavel Datsyuk, Riley Sheahan and Danny DeKeyser had the assists.
