If Daniel Alfredsson is going to retire, the Ottawa Senators are going to give him all the time he needs to think about it.
Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports the organization will not pressure their team captain into deciding whether or not he wants to play next season.
“He’ll make the decision when he’s ready,” said a league source Saturday. “He needs time.”
This is the second summer in a row we’ll get to do the retirement dance with Alfredsson.
Alfredsson, 40, helped the Senators to the playoffs yet again this season in a year where not much was expected of the team. After dealing with a host of key injuries, the Sens finished seventh in the East and upset the Montreal Canadiens in the first-round of the playoffs. It’s a one round improvement on how the team did last season when they lost in seven games to the New York Rangers.
