Veteran forward Daniel Alfredsson has resumed skating in Sweden and could re-sign with the Detroit Red Wings in the coming weeks.

"My take is we're probably going to try do something with Alfie," Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland told's Ansar Khan. "He had a good year, 18 goals. When he was healthy, he was valuable."

Alfredsson was Detroit's leading scorer last season with a team-high 49 points in 68 games, despite dealing with a lower back injury during the second half of the year.

The unrestricted free agent told the Red Wings earlier this offseason that he would either return to Detroit for a 20th NHL season or retire, depending on how he felt after a few weeks of skating in August. Holland admits that while Alfredsson's health is a concern, the 41-year-old can still contribute if he returns to Hockeytown.

"Certainly, I don't look at Alfie thinking he's going to play 82 games," Holland said. "When you got (Gustav) Nyquist and (Tomas) Tatar and (Tomas) Jurco and (Luke) Glendening and (Riley) Sheahan, if we can get a certain amount of games out of (Alfredsson), we would feel like he would be a real positive addition.
