Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson might need some time to decide if he'll play in the NHL again, but he's made one decision: Alfie will join Team Sweden at the World Hockey Championships.

The Senators captain confirmed Sunday night he will fly to Sweden Wednesday and play at the world championships that open Friday in Stockholm and Helsinki, Finland.

Alfredsson said this has nothing to do with his decision on whether he'll play next season. The 39-year-old reiterated to the International Ice Hockey Federation's website he'll decide on his NHL future in the next couple of weeks.

"These are two separate things," said Alfredsson. "I will make the decision a couple of weeks after the World Championship."
