With the Detroit Red Wings done for the season, veteran winger Daniel Alfredsson will be taking his time to decide whether he'll keep playing in the National Hockey League next fall.
"I love the game, it's the best job you can have," he explained Tuesday as the players left Joe Louis Arena for the summer. "I'll sit down with my wife and we'll go from there."
Alfredsson, 41, signed with Detroit last summer on a one-year, $5.5 million contract after 17 seasons with the Ottawa Senators. The Red Wings made the playoffs for the 23rd straight season with a wild card berth, but were knocked out in five games by the Boston Bruins in Round 1.
Alfredsson has 444 goals and 1,157 points in 1,246 career NHL games.
