Alfie's coming back! RT @svtlehmann: Daniel Alfredsson har bestämt sig för att fortsätta karriären. — Stefan G:son (@steffeG) June 28, 2013 Daniel Alfredsson has decided to play another year. "The playoffs felt great. No backproblems". #nhl #sens — Marie Lehmann (@svtlehmann) June 28, 2013 "The chance to maybe play one more Olympics wasn't part of my desicion to continue BUT I'd like to, ofcourse", Daniel Alfredsson #sens — Marie Lehmann (@svtlehmann) June 28, 2013 To the surprise of almost nobody, Daniel Alfredsson has decided to return for one more season. Being the team`s franchise player and long serving captain of a currently developping team, this is absolutely fantastic news. Despite his drop in offensive production from last season (0.79 PPG to 0.55), Alfie is still a key contributor to his team`s success. Among Sens forwards, he was second in 5-on-5 ice-time, first in 5-on-4 ice time, and 4th in 4-on-5 ice time, and had great possession numbers at even strength. His drop in production is most likely due to the amount of injuries the team had, and a big regression in his shooting percentage after shooting above his career average last season. With him returning, the Sens will keep their deep forward group from the playoffs of: Michalek-Spezza-Silfverberg Conacher-Turris-Alfredsson Greening-Pageau-Condra Zibanejad-Smith-Neil With a healthy lineup, and maybe with the aquisition of another Top 4 defenseman, the Sens should have a pretty good shot at winning the cup in what might be Alfredsson`s final season. It's a beautiful day !!! #perfect — Erik Karlsson (@ErikKarlsson65) June 28, 2013
