Senators Captain Alfredsson Returns for Game 6 Against Rangers

April 23 (Bloomberg) -- Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said he will return from a concussion tonight against the New York Rangers in Game 6 of their opening-round playoff series, after being sidelined the last three games.

Alfredsson, 39, told reporters after practice that he will play tonight at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, the National Hockey League team said on its Twitter page. The Senators lead the best-of-seven series, 3-2.

A six-time All-Star, Alfredsson suffered a concussion in the second period of the Senators’ 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2 when he was elbowed in the head by Rangers forward Carl Hagelin. Hagelin will also return to the lineup after serving a three-game ban for the hit.

Alfredsson has spent his entire 16-year career in Ottawa. He’s led the team in scoring five times, and his 1,082 career points rank fourth among active NHL players.
