Daniel Alfredsson can't even play with his kids, let alone think about playing hockey again anytime soon.

The Senators captain looked fine as he faced the media Thursday at Scotiabank Place for the first time since suffering a concussion Saturday against the New York Rangers, but he didn't sound optimistic about rejoining the Senators in the near future.

The 38-year-old Alfredsson is still woozy after taking a shot to the head from New York Rangers winger Wojtek Wolski last Saturday and isn't even willing to discuss a return date.

Alfredsson said he gets dizzy and tired playing with his four children at his west-end home. He hasn't done any physical activity since the incident and none is yet planned.
