Daniel Alfredsson is back for at least one more season!


alfie1 cbc sean kilpatrick cp Daniel Alfredsson is back for at least one more season!

The Ottawa Senators announced Friday that captain Daniel Alfredsson has expressed interest in returning to the team for an 18th season.

“I was told late this morning that Daniel had a desire to come back and play for the Senators,” general manager Bryan Murray said on the team’s website. “So we now have an opportunity to negotiate with JP Barry, his agent and see if we can get a contract that should allow that to happen.”

Alfredsson, 40, had a salary-cap charge of $4.875 million in 2012-13, the final season of a four-year contract that started in the 2009-10 season. Murray said he hoped to begin talks on a new deal for Alfredsson sometime over the weekend.

“JP was traveling today so I really didn’t have a chance to get any other information other than Daniel informed him that he would like to play and that we should start talking,” Murray said. “That will start hopefully sometime over the weekend, and we’ll see where it takes us. Hopefully we can get a deal done fairly quickly.”

Earlier Friday, Alfredsson told a Swedish reporter that after taking some time off he felt a desire to return.

“I needed a few weeks to see if the necessary urge for summer training and pre-camp was there,” he said. “And it is.”

Alfredsson, captain since the start of the 1999-2000 season, led the Senators in scoring with 10 points in 10 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He tied for second on the Senators with 10 goals and was third with 26 points in 2012-13, playing 47 of 48 games.

Taken by the team in the sixth round of the 1994 NHL Draft, Alfredsson is the franchise’s all-time leader in games played (1,176), goals (426), assists (682) and points (1,108). He’s second in goals and third in points among Swedish-born NHL players.

Alfredsson said though the chance to play for Sweden in the 2014 Olympics in Russia wasn’t a driving force to his return, the opportunity to represent his country at the Games for a fourth time would be something special. He had team-highs of five goals and 10 points in eight games to help Sweden win the gold medal at the 2006 Games.

“The chance to maybe play one more Olympics wasn’t part of my decision to continue but I’d like to, of course,” he said.



Flyers and Mark Streit agree to 4 year $21M contract!


061213 mark streit 600 Flyers and Mark Streit agree to 4 year $21M contract!

Defenseman Mark Streit has signed a four-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers, the team announced Friday.

The deal is worth $21 million, an average annual value of $5.25 million.

Streit would have become an unrestricted free agent July 5. The Flyers acquired his rights from the New York Islanders on June 12 in exchange for minor-league forward Shane Harper and a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

“The future is bright,” Streit said at the time of the trade. “[The Flyers] were in the Cup Finals three years ago, and there is so much skill and a great mix between veteran players and young players, so I’m pretty confident and I truly hope [a contract is ] going to get done soon.”

Streit, 35, finished the 2012-13 regular season with six goals and 27 points in 45 games, then added two goals and five points in six Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Earlier this month, the Flyers announced they intended to use contract compliance buyouts on forwardDanny Briere and goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.

Alex Tanguay traded back to Colorado!


 

alex1 Alex Tanguay traded back to Colorado!

The Colorado Avalanche acquired forward Alex Tanguay, a member of their 2001 Stanley Cup-winning team, along with defenseman Cory Sarich, from the Calgary Flames on Thursday in a four-player trade.

The Avalanche sent forward David Jones and defenseman Shane O’Brien to the Flames.

“This trade adds needed size up front and grit on the back end while also allowing us to get younger,” Flames general manager Jay Feaster said in a statement. “We like the fact that Jones plays a north/south game, drives hard to the net, kills penalties and is a right-hand shot. O’Brien is a hard guy to play against, knows how to get under the skin of the opposition and stands up for his teammates. We are pleased to add both of these players to our organization.”

Tanguay, 34, will be returning to the team with which he spent the first six seasons of his NHL career. A 1998 first-round pick of the Avalanche, he joined the team in 1999-2000 and had 17 goals and 51 points as a rookie. Tanguay was even better in his second season, scoring 27 goals and finishing with 77 points. He added six goals and 21 points in 23 Stanley Cup Playoff games, and scored twice in Colorado’s 3-1 victory against the New Jersey Devils in Game 7 of the Final.

The Avalanche traded him to Calgary in 2006 after he had a career-high 29 goals and 78 points. He scored 22 goals and had a career-best 81 points in 2006-07, his first season with the Flames. But after one more year in Calgary, he spent a season with the Montreal Canadiens and another with the Tampa Bay Lightning before returning to the Flames in 2010-11, putting up 22 goals and 69 points in his return. He declined to 13 goals and 49 points in 2011-12 and finished with 11 goals and 27 points this past season.

In 922 NHL games, Tanguay has 249 goals and 762 points. He also has 19 goals and 59 points in 98 playoff games.

“We are excited to have Alex back with the organization,” Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic, a former teammate, said in a statement.  “He is coming off a solid season and his experience will be beneficial to our young players. Cory is a veteran defenseman who will help our back end.”

Sarich, who waived his no-move clause to allow the trade to happen, is a 34-year-old stay-at-hole defenseman who has 20 goals, 148 points and 1,051 penalty minutes in 915 regular-season games, including two assists and 16 penalty minutes in 28 games in 2012-13. He was a member of the Lightning’s 2004 Stanley Cup-winning club and has spent the last six seasons with the Flames.

Jones, a 28-year-old native of Guelph, Ontario, has spent six seasons with the Avalanche, totaling 70 goals and 56 assists in 272 games. He had three goals and nine points in 22 games with Colorado in 2012-13 after back-to-back 20-goal-seasons.

O’Brien, 29, has played 483 career games with Colorado, the Nashville PredatorsVancouver Canucks,Tampa Bay Lightning and Anaheim Ducks. He had four assists and 60 penalty minutes in 28 games with Colorado in 2012-13. In his career, the native of Port Hope, Ontario, has 13 goals, 88 points and 853 penalty minutes.
