Darcy Tucker has announced his retirement after 15 seasons in the NHL.
"It was one of those things that all players agonize over a bit," Tucker said. "Through the summer and working out, figuring out what I want to do and where I want to go, if it was going to happen at all, nothing came across the plate that was overly intriguing for me. The only thing that would have kept me to try to play was try to win the Stanley Cup before I retired, but that wasn't going to come to pass, so I buckled down and made the decision." Tucker had 215 goals, 476 points, and 1,410 penalty minutes in 970 games with the Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Colorado Avalanche. Fri, Oct 1, 2010 01:59:00 PM
