A few days ago, news broke that Cody Hodgson, the former 10th overall pick, expressed his desire to come out of retirement and make a return to professional hockey after having to step away nearly a decade ago due to medical issues.

According to reports from TSN and Bardown, Hodgson has now officially returned to the game by un-retiring and securing a Professional Tryout with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.


Hodgson, forced into retirement at the young age of 26 due to a diagnosis of malignant hyperthermia, is making a comeback to hockey for the first time since the 2015-16 NHL season. His aim is to leave a mark on the AHL.


This unfolding story is garnering support from both media and fans alike, as Hodgson embarks on his journey to make a comeback and shape the end of his career on his own terms. No one wants to retire at 26, and Hodgson's redemption tour begins now.
