Daniel Alfredsson Injury Update: Senators Captain To Return For Game 6

Daniel Alfredsson will be on the ice at Scotiabank Place in Kanata, Ont. on Monday night as the Ottawa Senators look to dispatch the top-seeded New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Alfredsson made the announcement to the media gathered at the morning skate just outside the Nation's Capital before Game 6.

Alfredsson has been out of the lineup since Game 2 against the Rangers, when he suffered a concussion after taking an elbow to the head from New York forward Carl Hagelin. Hagelin was suspended three games for the hit and missed Games 3, 4 and 5. He'll also return to the lineup in Game 6.

Alfredsson, the captain of the Senators, is obviously a key part of their equation. Hagelin is a vital contributing factor for the Rangers as well, so in an elimination game, it's good to see both players can put the incident behind them and find their way back into the lineup.
