At some point, Daniel Alfredsson could return to a front office position with an NHL team. For now, though, Alfredsson says it’s time “to be a stay-at-home dad for awhile.” Alfredsson, who abruptly resigned as the Ottawa Senators senior advisor of hockey operations in early July, says his focus is on becoming more involved in the daily lives of his four sons, including helping coach them in minor hockey. Until Monday, the longtime Senators captain had been silent on his reasons for leaving the organization. After officially retiring as a player with the Senators in 2014, he had spent the past two seasons working closely with former general manager Bryan Murray, current general manager Pierre Dorion and assistant general manager Randy Lee. “I have a couple of projects on the go, but nothing major,” said Alfredsson, who put his golf game to the test during Monday’s Brooke and Friends Pro-Am at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club. “Once school starts, it’s full on with activities with the kids. We’re moving into a new house here in the fall, so we have a lot of planning to do with that. So, it’s going to be a quiet year for me, overall. “With all the changes in coming back to Ottawa (from Detroit), first renting a house, then buying a house, there have been a lot of adjustments for the family.” Alfredsson insists that Ottawa is home.
