The 40-year-old Alfredsson agreed to a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings Friday.
According to the Detroit Free Press the contract is worth as much as $5.5 million.

Alfredsson has scored 426 goals and compiled 1,108 points during his career. He served as the Senators’ captain since 1999.
