There was real estate news coming from the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

Senators’ back-up goalie Robin Lehner has bought the house of former teammate and Ottawa’s ex-captain Daniel Alfredsson, according to a report in the Ottawa Sun.

“I’ve got two dogs, too…When family comes over (from Sweden), I need rooms for them to stay in,” Lehner told the Ottawa Sun.

“I haven’t really had a life outside of hockey these last four years. It’s just been hockey and a little travel here and there. Over the last four years, I’ve probably lived close to a year in a hotel. Now I have my base. Now I know where I am.”

Alfredsson, 40, spent 18 years with the Senators before he signed with the Detroit Red Wings as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

His time in Ottawa came to an end a while ago, however the circumstances of this summer were magnified Wednesday, when Alfredsson made his regular season debut in a Red Wings uniform.

    When he goes to non sports related social events in the US, does he get to tell women that he owns the house of a former senator with a long term of service?

    Also, do the ghosts of mustaches past haunt the halls?

    Good thing Alfie has more class than his former owner. If he didn’t, he would demand his new tenant immediately pay a 1 million dollar security deposit with the threat of eviction.

      My jokes were pretty bad, but I’m not even sure what this means.

      (And thats coming from someone who just insinuated that mustaches have souls.)
