"If I feel I'm going to play next season, maybe I should play somewhere," Alfredsson told the Sun. "Not that I have to, but it's probably a good idea.
"I'd play some games, and just have a great experience. I'm not looking to go to a Swedish league or the Russian league, I don't think. The way I feel now, I don't think I would be motivated enough, if they cancelled the season, to really do a full push there."
After playing in a charity game held for victims of Hurricane Sandy in Atlantic City and spending time with Coyotes captain Shane Doan in Phoenix, Alfredsson might have found some great motivation to get back in the game in attempts to possibly return to the NHL next season.
"I don't know," Alfredsson said about committing to next year. "I'll take it as it goes, and go from there."
In 75 games with the Senators last season, Alfredsson posted 27 goals and 32 assists for 59 points.
