Ex-Senator Alfredsson Intends To Retire

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) told TSN's Darren Dreger that he doesn't intend to play this season, likely spelling the end to his professional hockey career.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson hasn't directly informed the Red Wings of his decision, but he's expected to do so in the coming days after an injured disc in his back cut his comeback bid short. The longtime Senators forward was one of the best two-way players in the league during the prime of his career, and was effective all the way to the end, leading the Red Wings in scoring last season at age 41. He accumulated 444 goals and 713 assists over his 18 NHL seasons.

Alfredsson Still Weighing Options

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) will make a decision on whether to retire or return to the Red Wings before the end of November, Louis Jean of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson has not ruled out playing this year, but with him still dealing with soreness in his back, the report adds he will likely retire if he does not skate with the Red Wings within the near future.

Return To NHL Growing Unlikely For FA Alfredsson

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) appears increasingly unlikely to play this season, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Johnston said that a source close to the situation told him last week that Daniel Alfredsson's chances of returning were below 50 percent, with the veteran winger experiencing continual problems with his back. He's since scaled back his skating in an effort to regain strength, but it seems as though retirement is starting to look like a more attractive option to Alfredsson. If he fails to show improvement in the coming weeks, expect Alfredsson to make some sort of announcement regarding his future plans.

Alfredsson Reports Improvement With Back

News: Daniel Alfredsson said Wednesday that he's experienced improvement with his back injury and expects to resume skating soon, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson will likely increase his activities slowly as he looks to put the persistent back problems behind him. The 41-year-old hasn't indicated definitively that he wants to return to the Red Wings this season, but the team would surely welcome him back if he remains interested. He led the team in scoring last season with 49 points in 68 games, showing he's still got something left in the tank even at his advanced age.

Daniel Alfredsson: Seeing Back Specialists

News: Daniel Alfredsson is visiting with back specialists and is not going to training camp with the Red Wings, Helene St. James of The Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: With Daniel Alfredsson's back ailing, it's looking more and more likely last year may have been his final season. Alfie has said he won't come back unless he's 100 percent, and although he wants to return to Detroit, it remains to be seen whether his body will let him.

Alfredsson Suffers Setback, Delays Signing

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) suffered a setback while skating last week and will likely enter Red Wings training camp without a contract, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson, who had been weighing retirement versus playing another season, was skating daily with the Red Wings last week before his back pain resurfaced. While Detroit GM Ken Holland dismissed the injury as the "nothing major," the 41-year-old Alfredsson previously stated he didn't want to return for a 19th NHL season unless he felt he still had something to offer as a lineup regular. He would seem to have something left in the tank after he tied for the team lead in scoring with 49 points in 68 games last season, but his desire to return could be lessened if the back pain becomes a chronic issue.

Alfredsson To Decide on 2014-15 In Mid-September

News: Daniel Alfredsson may not make a decision on returning to the NHL for 2014-15 until mid-September and could even come to training camp in Detroit on a tryout, according to Ian Mendes of TSN1200 Ottawa.
Analysis: Alfie had 49 points in 68 games last season, but is 42 and on the downside of a glorious career. The Wings might actually be hoping he retires after Thomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist stepped up late in the season and will press for more playing time this season.

Red Wings' Alfredsson Won't Rush Decision

News: Daniel Alfredsson hopes to play for the Red Wings next season, but he is not expected to make a decision on his retirement until August or September, the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson plans to either play for the Red Wings or retire, depending on how his back feels once he starts skating in August. He'll likely remain unsigned through most of the offseason, and it seems that he has no intention of talking to other teams.

Detroit's Alfredsson Unsure About Future

News: The Red Wings would like to re-sign Daniel Alfredsson for next season if he does not retire, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson was surprisingly productive at the age of 41 in 2013-14, with 18 goals and 31 assists in 68 games. If he did come back, he would likely get more rest in order to keep him fresh for a last run at the Stanley Cup.

Wings' Alfredsson (Back) Playing Saturday

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) will play Saturday against the Bruins.
Analysis: After missing both Game 3 and Game 4, Alredsson was back at practice Friday and will be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 5. His return means Todd Bertuzzi will take a seat.

Detroit's Alfredsson (Back) Practices Friday

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) returned to practice Friday and it appears he may be healthy enough for Saturday's Game 5 against Boston, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock had previously said Daniel Alfredsson should return Saturday and the timeline seems to be holding true. The Wings need some sort of spark from Alfredsson as they try to stave off elimination in Game 5.

Red Wings' Alfredsson Out For Game 4

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) will not play in Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson was quickly ruled out after he was unable to participate at morning skate, but coach Mike Babcock did say after the session that the veteran forward "should be ready by Saturday." It looks like the Red Wings will get Henrik Zetterberg back in the lineup following a two-month absence due to a back issue, lessening the impact of Alfredsson's unavailability.

Wings' Alfredsson Misses Practice

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) did not practice Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock did not provide an update on Daniel Alfredsson's status Wednesday, with the forward's status for Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins thus clouded.

Wings' Alfredsson Out Sunday

News: Daniel Alfredsson will miss Sunday's contest against the Blues, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: It appears to just be a day off for the veteran, as the report indicates he will be good to go for the start of the playoffs. Joakim Andersson will start in his place on Sunday.

Red Wings' Alfredsson A Game-Time Decision

News: Daniel Alfredsson will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Senators, Brendan Savage of MLive reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson returned from a lower-body injury Friday and was his typically productive self, registering a goal and an assist. However, he may be dealing with some residual soreness, and is thus questionable for Saturday's game.

Alfredsson In Lineup For Detroit Win

News: Daniel Alfredsson registered a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over Buffalo after not playing in Wednesday's win over Boston.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson was busy on Friday in the victory and figures to be one of the team's more important players in the last five games as the Wings vie for a playoff spot. He has four points in his last three games.

Red Wings' Alfredsson Likely Back In Friday

News: Daniel Alfredsson (lower body) took the ice for pregame warmups and will likely play in Friday's game against the Sabres, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Barring news of a surprise late scratch, it can be assumed that Daniel Alfredsson will rejoin the lineup. He was previously said to be doubtful for Friday, but it looks like he'll miss just the one game.

Wings' Alfredsson Dealing With Back Issue

News: Daniel Alfredsson (back) may be able to play Friday against the Sabres, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: The report clarifies that Daniel Alfredsson, who was given another day off on Thursday, is currently dealing with a back issue. "He's had the same thing, the back stuff, so he's getting it worked out," coach Mike Babcock noted. "He could be a go (Friday) though."

Wings' Alfredsson Doubtful For Friday

News: Daniel Alfredsson (lower body) did not skate Thursday and is unlikely to play in Friday's tilt, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson has been a consistent force for the Red Wings this season, but his body is starting to wear a bit. He hasn't skated since Sunday and doesn't have a timetable for return.

Wings' Alfredsson Out For Wednesday

News: Daniel Alfredsson (lower body) will not play Wednesday night against the Bruins.
Analysis: The team is describing Daniel Alfredsson as day-to-day for now, but it's definitely a situation worth monitoring as the playoffs approach. The 41-year-old winger has racked up 17 goals and 28 assists in 63 games this season, but it sounds like he may be starting to wear down with age.

Wings' Alfredsson Nets Last-Second OT Winner

News: Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game with one second remaining in overtime Thursday to steal a 5-4 win from Marc-Andre Fleury and the Penguins. He also notched a power-play assist in the contest.
Analysis: Alfie's on a little run over his last three, with five points, including the game-winning goal in consecutive games. The Wings need him, and he's stepping up -- he skated more than 20 minutes in this game for the first time since Dec. 19.

Wings' Alfredsson Nets First Goal In 10 Games

News: Daniel Alfredsson scored his first goal in 10 games in Tuesday's win over the Maple Leafs. The goal was the game winner.
Analysis: He's having a good offensive season, but his pace has slowed since injuries have decimated the Wings' lineup. He still has value as a complementary scorer, but he can't carry the mail like he used to (and is being asked to do now).

Detroit's Alfredsson Gets Practice Off Thursday

News: Daniel Alfredsson did not practice Thursday, but it is a maintenance day to get some immigration issues sorted out, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson is healthy and should slate into the lineup Friday against Edmonton. However, he is in the midst of his biggest scoring drought of the season, with no points in five March games. He should break out of the slump soon, but use him at your own risk.

Detroit's Alfredsson Should Play Thursday

News: Daniel Alfredsson should play Thursday despite losing a handful of teeth in Tuesday's game, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Daniel Alfredsson had what must have been a painful dentist appointment Wednesday, but he should be good to go for Thursday. Tuesday was the first time in five games Alfredsson didn't score, and he's been a reliable fantasy forward all season.
