Daniel Alfredsson Signs With Detroit Red Wings


Daniel Alfredsson spent his every one of his 1178 career games in an Ottawa Senators jersey has left and signed with the Detroit Red Wings. Alfredsson has been the captain in Ottawa since 1999. The deal is worth $3.5 million with an additional $2 million in incentive bonuses.

Alfredsson is 40 years old now, but still has the ability to put up numbers. The former 6th round pick has seen his numbers decline, but put up 10-16-26 last season in 47 games. He’s a six time all star as well in his 17 season career.

Alfredsson adds to the Swedish arsenal that the Detroit Red Wings have acquired over the years. The Wings are currently looking into Mikhail Grabovski and Stephen Weiss as well as watching UFAs Daniel Cleary, Valtteri Filppula, and Damien Brunner.
