It's somewhat unsurprising that an injury forced hulking, defensive defenseman Sami Salo to retire.
Salo was an effective force when he was in the lineup, but perhaps the 40-year-old Finn was blocked from reaching his full potential due to a long list of injuries during his career. To name just a few, Salo tore his pectoral muscle, suffered a right foot infection from abrasions made by his skate laces, took a slapshot that ripped up muscles in his buttocks and tore his Achilles tendon.
