Longtime Senators Captain Daniel Alfredsson Hopes Karlsson Stays in Ottawa


Alfredsson hopes Karlsson stays with Senators

--

GATINEAU, Que. - Daniel Alfredsson admits the uncertainty about Erik Karlsson's future is making things tough for Ottawa Senators fans.

For one day at least, two of the most prominent figures in Senators history were at the same venue in the capital region, as Karlsson watched Alfredsson compete in a local golf tournament on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, assistant general manager Randy Lee is awaiting a court date for harassment charges in Buffalo and Alfredsson was quoted as saying he hopes the team gets a new owner to replace Eugene Melnyk earlier this year.

Karlsson did not talk to reporters on Tuesday. The Senators said they offered the 28-year-old captain an extension on Sunday, but there has been no indication whether the star defenceman is interested in remaining with Ottawa after his contract expires at the end of the 2018-19 season. …
