Daniel Alfredsson, Senior Advisor of Operations for the Ottawa Senators, announced today that he is stepping away from the game of hockey to “evaluate his next professional challenge.” More from the release:
“I want to thank the Senators for the opportunity; it has enabled me to understand the type of commitments required to work in hockey should I determine that to be my future path. Our first order of business is getting established in our new home in Ottawa and returning to Gothenburg, with my family, to visit Swedish family and friends for the summer. We look forward to sharing the details of what’s next for the Alfredsson family in the future.”
The all-time leading scorer in Ottawa’s history with 1108 points and 426 goals, Alfredsson joined the Sens’ front office months after retiring from the game as a player. There is no speculation as to why the Senators legend left the organization.
