Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson will be out "weeks" with what is suspected to be a separated shoulder, according to the Ottawa Sun. Alfredsson hurt his shoulder in the first period of Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Penguins. A Swedish newspaper reported Thursday that Alfredsson will be out for four weeks but should be ready to play for Sweden in the Vancouver Olympics. The Senators began play Saturday in seventh place in the Eastern Conference and are already without center Jason Spezza and winger Nick Foligno . Both have knee injuries.

LAKE ORION, Mich. -- Helen Alfredsson turned the first round of the 49th U.S. Women's Open into a one-woman demolition derby at Indianwood Golf and Country Club yesterday.Alfredsson, 29, reeled off eight birdies in posting a 32-3163 over the 6,244-yard, par-71 course. It elevated her name to the highest level of single-round scoring in a major championship, man or woman, a level previously reserved for the likes of Nicklaus, Norman, Miller and Sheehan."When you're shooting a good score, sometimes you don't realize it," the Swedish star said.

LAKE ORION, Mich. -- Helen Alfredsson, on her way to making a shambles of the 49th U.S. Women's Open, wound up making a shambles of her own round yesterday.Alfredsson, who had led through the first two rounds, got the margin to seven before losing eight shots to par in the last 11 holes. Lost, too, was the lead.Patty Sheehan, who knows a little something about collapsing in a U.S. Women's Open, turned out to be the beneficiary of this backup in the third round at Indianwood Golf and Country Club yesterday.

There is the baseball cap that has become a trademark. There are the multilingual outbursts, usually directed at errant golf balls. And there is her old college nickname -- "Crazy" -- given by her former coach.Meet Helen Alfredsson, the polar opposite to every Swedish athlete you can name and, as her performance the past year might suggest, the next big star on the LPGA Tour.Alfredsson's accomplishments in Europe already have made her recognizable name back home -- she was the 1989 European Tour Rookie of the Year and the 1990 Women's British Open champion -- it took a two-shot victory at this year's Nabisco Dinah Shore to bring her the start of that kind of attention in the United States.
