What you say: Alfie leaves the Senators

Reaction was swift on twitter as news spread that Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson left to join the Detroit Red Wings.

I’ve attached a photo of Daniel Alfredsson, taken at a charity event and I have a comment that I would like to go with it, just to show the more ‘human’ side of the man.

My comment:

“I wanted to post this photo of Daniel Alfredsson, not in a hockey jersey, not on the ice, in this moment he was at ‘Ringside for Youth’ for the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club, one of many worthy organizations that he championed. At the end of the day Alfie was not just the captain of a hockey team, he was OUR captain. Whether you followed hockey or not. We will miss him, but the character of the man remains unchanged. He deserves our sincere thanks for caring and sharing so much of himself in our community. ‎#PraiseAlfie, one of the true greats.”

thanks so much!
