Don’t count out Daniel Alfredsson from returning this season.
The Ottawa Senators captain could be back, if only to prove to himself that he doesn’t need surgery to repair his problems with back spasms. Alfredsson has been doing an assortment of exercises in attempt to avoid going under the knife, which could sideline him for four to six weeks in the summer.
“I guess we still have some optimism that he might play by the end of the season and that’s our hope and wish,” coach Cory Clouston said before Saturday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
“He just wants to see if the things that he’s working on right now can allow him to play games without surgery. So, if he does play games, to him the more imformation the better. He’s a competitive guy. He sees the team winning games now. He really wants to be part of it, but the other end of it, he wants to make sure he’s exhausted all avenues.”
