Alfredsson Extends

The Senators have announced that their captain Daniel Alfredsson has extended his stay with the team for four years... on top of the four (including this season) already on the books. Alfredsson, 36 in December, will now theoretically remain with the team for the remainder of his career. With Spezza signed on for six seasons (also including this one) and Heatley signed on for seven (you guessed it, including this one), the team has their best line for an awfully long time.

The contract is reportedly worth $22 million over the four season of the extension, which is a very cap friendly number for the Senators, averaging $5.5 million per season, which is an absolute bargain for the team.

Alfredsson has had himself a productive start of the year, scoring 3 goals and 6 assists in 9 games. He's been a big reason why Dale C. has moved up quickly in the Draft standings.
