Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson plans to begin off-season workouts next week, looking to see if he has what it takes to return for another NHL season.

In an interview on The Team 1200, Alfredsson said he hopes to know where he stands when it comes to his playing status within two or three weeks.

"I'm going to try to start working out next week," said Alfredsson, who attended the Ringside for Youth charity amateur boxing event Thursday night at the CE Centre. "I think as that goes on for a few weeks, I think I'll know where my head is."
