As a tribute to our fallen captain I thought I would share a site that reminds us Senators fans of all the wonderful things Daniel Alfredsson has done for us.
Ottawa Senators Captain Daniel Alfredsson underwent arthroscopic surgery today on his right knee. The Swedish born superstar had aggravated a bone chip that came loose last Sunday in Stockholm.
The bone was removed successfully and there is no prognosis on when he will return to the lineup. The average time for athletes to heal from this type of procedure is usually 2-4 weeks. The Senators staff thought it would be best to get it done now so that Alfie could be healthy for the majority of the season thereafter.
In the meantime Jarko Ruutu will fill Alfredsson’s spot on the first line with Heatley and Spezza. Luckily, the Senators have a less than demanding schedule over the next two weeks that sees them play a total of 5 games all at home.
I have included a link to a short animation of a typical bone chip being removed from the knee.
