All Hail King Alfie
Special shoutout to Daniel Alfredsson, who on this day 10 years ago, wore the C for the very first time. It's hard to believe, but he has been with the team since 1995-96. He is the face of the franchise and will be the first modern Senators player to have his number retired. He is by far the most beloved player and with good reason. His heart, character and skill, have made him a legend in Ottawa and with me. As reported 3 months ago by Sens Town, he is also the NHL's longest serving captain, entering his 10th year with the C. He is the definition of a pro, on and off the ice he is a player that everyone looks up to. Nothing I say could possibly do him justice, so I will end it here. I think I speak for everyone when I simply say, ALFIE! ALFIE! ALFIE!
