Brian Leetch has officially retired from hockey.
Leetch last played in the 2005/06 season as he suited up for Boston, scoring five goals and 32 points in 61 games. Leetch sat out all of last season as he considered a couple of teams including the Atlanta Thrashers, but never did sign. Leetch had a Hall of Fame career in the NHL, winning the Norris Trophy twice, the Conn Smythe once and garnering 10 all-star selections in his 18 year career. Leetch leaves the game with 247 goals and 1,028 points, including a 102 point season in 1991-92. "I have been fortunate to be an NHL player since 1988," Leetch said in a statement. "I missed being in the NHL this past season, but believe it was the right time for me to stop playing." We wish Leetch good luck in his future. His next hockey stop will be the Hall of Fame.
