Daniel Alfredsson has been named an assistant coach




The Senators also relieved a member of Smith's coaching staff.

#Sens also fired assistant coach Davis Payne.


After hiring Martin last week as a special advisor it seemed like only a matter of time before Smith would be out the door and after losing 4 games in a row, enough was enough.
