Alfredsson to play in Cornwall charity match
By DON BRENNAN, QMI Agency
OTTAWA - Daniel Alfredsson has now decided to play with fellow locked-out NHLers in Monday's fundraiser at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
The game is the first in a series of charity matches for the group, which is made up primarily of Ottawa Senators who didn't go to Europe or Binghamton during the league's work stoppage.
It will also be the first in the area for former Montreal Canadien-Minnesota Wild Guillaume Latendresse since he signed with the Senators as a free agent in the off-season.
Other Senators in the lineup will be Peter Regin, Chris Neil, Chris Phillips, Zack Smith and Marc Methot. Free agent Jesse Winchester, a former Senator, will also take the ice, as will the likes of Montreal Canadiens Brian Gionta, Josh Gorges and Travis Moen, Winnipeg's Grant Clitsome and Pittsburgh's Tyler Kennedy.
The game starts at 7:30 p.m. and will raise money for the Cornwall Chapter of the Max Keeping Foundation and First Assist, a charity that funds programs to benefit First Nations youth in fly-in communities.
Tickets for the First Assist Charity Classic are $20. The group will play in Thunder Bay Nov. 12 then leave for a three-game tour of the Northwest Territories Nov. 18.
