Josh Gorges, who can become an unrestricted free agent this off-season, isn't ready to retire yet.
"I'll take some time, then when it's enough I'll reevaluate things and kind of see what's in store," Gorges said. "Obviously, there's one thing left undone, and that's winning it all. It'd be hard to say that I don't want to go back and have a chance at that. ... That fire to win that is still there, so we'll wait to see what the summer brings." The 33-year-old defenseman appeared in 34 games during the 2017-18 campaign. Apr 10 - 8:39 AM
