Senators Honor Alfredsson

from Rob Brodie of OttawaSenators.com,

One thousand games later, the love affair between Daniel Alfredsson and his adopted home remains as enduring as ever.

With a sellout throng of red clad fans chanting his name with great fervour, the Senators captain was honoured Saturday night during an emotional pre-game ceremony prior to Ottawa’s matchup with the Buffalo Sabres at Scotiabank Place.

It was a tribute to Alfredsson’s 1,000th game in the National Hockey League, a milestone he reached earlier this week against the Florida Panthers. But tonight was the night Alfredsson truly looked forward to — the chance to share it all with his family, friends and “some of the most passionate, enthusiastic fans in the NHL.”

“I thank you for your support through my whole career,” Alfredsson told the cheering fans in a speech that concluded the 11-minute ceremony. “It’s an honour to be the captain of year team.”
