Daniel Alfredsson's recuperative powers could potentially have him playing as soon as this weekend.

The Ottawa Senators captain skated on his own Tuesday and head coach Craig Hartsburg has not ruled out the possibility Alfredsson could play against Phoenix on Friday or Boston on Saturday.

Alfredsson had surgery to remove a bone chip in his right knee last Friday but was able to ride a stationary bike on Monday.

"He's feeling pretty good," said Hartsburg to the Ottawa Sun on Monday.

"He's got very little swelling, which is a positive," Hartsburg told the newspaper. He's doing well, but every day we have to wait and see how he feels. I don't perceive it to be a real long time (before he's back in the lineup), but I don't want to put a time frame on it."

It was originally thought Alfredsson would miss between 10 days and two weeks.

The 35-year-old has two assists over his two games this season.

Alfredsson missed 12 games in 2007/08 with hip and groin and knee issues.
