Has Alfredsson Played His Last Game?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Once again, Daniel Alfredsson performed with incredible passion, like a man who may never do so again.

Afterward, he even admitted it could have been his swan song.

Moments following Thursday’s 4-3 loss to the Czechs in Stockholm that knocked he and his Swedish teammates out of the world championship, the Senators captain was described as being “distraught” as he told local media that “this might have been my last hockey game.”

Alfredsson will now return to Ottawa and make the much-anticipated decision of whether to retire or play a 17th NHL season. Despite his comment in the aftermath of an emotional game, it’s unlikely he has made a final determination.

He’ll be back if he’s physically. This year was too great for Ottawa. If he doesn’t come back, it’ll be because of the two concussions suffered this year.
