Daniel Alfredsson could attend Detroit Red Wings training camp without a contract due to concerns over the state of his back, general manager Ken Holland said Wednesday.

Alfredsson “felt a little bit of a tweak” in his back after an informal skate last week, Holland told the Detroit Free Press. As a result, Holland said, “It’s possible Alfredsson¸comes to camp without a contract. We’ll see what happens over the next week.”

Alfredsson led the team with 49 points in 68 games last season, but stated he doesn't want to play again unless he can make a meaningful contribution. 

Holland referred to Alfredsson's back pain as "nothing major," however, it does put the winger's ability to resume his career in doubt for the time being.
