After 17 seasons and over 1,100 games in the NHL, veteran forward Paul Stastny has decided to hang up his skates. The announcement came in a recent article in The Athletic, where Stastny confirmed the news to Pierre LeBrun.

Stastny revealed,
"I haven't filed anything, but in early September we decided we were done."

He continued, "I didn't put anything out on social media or anything. I kind of came into the league quietly, and I'm leaving the league quietly. That's the way I like it."

Stastny's decision was well-known among those close to him, and news naturally spread.
Drafted in the second round, 44th overall, by the Colorado Avalanche in 2005, Stastny spent eight seasons with the team. He later played for the St. Louis Blues for four years and had stints with the Winnipeg Jets, Vegas Golden Knights, and, most recently, the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2022-23 season.
Over his 1,145-game NHL career, the 37-year-old tallied 822 points (293 goals, 529 assists) and 500 penalty minutes. In the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he posted 73 points (30 goals, 43 assists) in 118 games.
Stastny also proudly represented the United States in international competitions, including two Winter Olympics, where he won silver at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Congratulations to Paul Stastny on an outstanding NHL career, and best wishes in his well-deserved retirement!
