Updates on Connor McDavid and Micheal Ferland, plus the latest on the Senators, Jets and Canadiens.

OTTAWA SUN: The Senators and former captain Daniel Alfredsson are still working out the details of his new job with the organization.
NBC SPORTS: The Winnipeg Jets have offered Thomas Raffl, brother of Philadelphia Flyers winger Michael Raffl, a professional tryout.
