Sens captain Daniel Alfredsson to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson was scheduled to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Friday.

The NHL team said doctors will remove a bone chip that was dislodged from his right knee during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins last Sunday. A team spokesman said Alfredsson is expected to be out of action for 10-14 days.

Alfredsson has recorded two assists in two games this season. The 35-year-old right-winger had 89 points (40-49) in 70 games last season.

Ottawa took three of four possible points from the Penguins in Alfredsson's native Sweden last weekend. The Senators are home to the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

Alfredsson has recorded 849 points (331-518) in 855 career NHL regular-season games. He has 80 points (43-37) in 101 career playoff games.
