Alfredsson returning for 18th season

FROM Alexei Yashin to Radek Bonk to Erik Karlsson, the Ottawa Senators have gone through plenty of changes in their 20-plus years as an NHL franchise.

Daniel Alfredsson has been the constant since he entered the league in 1995, and that won't change any time soon.

The 40-year-old Alfredsson will return to the Senators in 2013-14 for his 18th season, the team confirmed Friday. Few players embody an organization as much as Alfredsson, who has served as captain for 14 seasons.

Alfredsson is a six-time NHL all-star and recently won the Mark Messier Leadership Award. Coach Paul MacLean said that trophy could be renamed for Alfredsson some day if the league wanted to do so.

Habs buy out Kaberle

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens made it official on Friday that they have used a compliance buyout on defenceman Tomas Kaberle.

Kaberle, a 14-year NHL veteran, had one year remaining on his contract with a salary cap hit of US$4.25 million.

Kaberle spent two seasons with the Canadiens. He had three goals and 25 points in 53 regular season games.

He was acquired on Dec. 9, 2011 from Carolina in exchange for Jaroslav Spacek.

Jackets extend coach

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Todd Richards got a vote of confidence from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.

The club signed Richards to a one-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

The 46-year-old Richards has a record of 42-38-9 in his 99 games with the Blue Jackets, including a 24-17-7 mark and franchise-best .573 winning percentage in 2012-13.

Poile gets U.S. post

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Nashville Predators general manager David Poile will fill the same position for the 2014 U.S. Olympic men's hockey team.

USA Hockey announced the selection Friday. Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero will serve as associate general manager and former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke will be director of player personnel.

They were to be formally introduced at a Saturday news conference, when USA Hockey announces its head coach for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

Poile was an associate general manager for the 2010 U.S. team that won a silver medal.
