Alfredsson rejoins Senators staff in unspecified role

Daniel Alfredsson is back with the Ottawa Senators organization with no official title, president of hockey operations Steve Staios told Postmedia’s Bruce Garrioch.

“At this point in time, it’s best for him to be around the players and the coaches quite a bit more,” Staios said. “We’re going to see how this evolves, but he’s officially back with the organization.”

Alfredsson is widely regarded as the best player in Senators history. He played 17 seasons with the club from 1996-2013 and is the franchise’s all-time leader in goals (426) and points (1,108). In 2016, he was the first player to have his number retired by the organization and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last year.

Alfredsson worked as Ottawa’s senior adviser of hockey operations after his playing career but decided to leave the organization in 2017 when his contract expired after two seasons.
