Scott Stevens has retired.

The 41 year-old had 196 goals, 908 points and 2,785 PIM in 1,635 games with Washington, St. Louis and New Jersey. He also had 26 goals and 118 points in 233 playoff games and was named the Conn Smythe trophy winner in 2000, as the MVP in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Stevens played 22 seasons and more games than any other defenceman in NHL history and is a sure fire hall-of-famer. We wish him well.

Martin Brodeur believes that defenseman Scott Stevens is set to retire.

''It's my gut feeling,'' Brodeur said last night. ''I didn't get in contact with him at all in the off-season, and for him to miss that much time and keep saying that he doesn't know yet, doesn't know yet, well that doesn't sound too good. The 41-year-old Stevens has not played a hockey game in anger since January 2004 when he was diagnosed with post concussion syndrome.

The New York Post is reporting that sources close to Scott Stevens say Stevens is leaning towards returning to the Devils this season after recovering from post-concussion syndrome.

Stevens hasn't played since early January, 2004, although he was cleared by doctors to play last November. The 41-year-old defenseman would be a welcome addition to the Devil defense although fantasy-wise, Stevens' value is now limited. If signed, Stevens puts a further strain on New Jersey's $39 million salary cap which is already over $44 million.

There has still been no decision from Scott Stevens if he will retire this year.

Stevens has been cleared by doctors to play after suffering a concussion 20 months ago. The 41-year-old defenseman has to decide if he wants to play another year. If not, the Devils defense would be Rafalski, Paul Martin, Malakhov, Matvichuk, Dan McGillis, Colin White and Sean Brown.

The Devils are being patient waiting for captain Scott Stevens to decide if he wants to continue his NHL career.

Stevens is contemplating retirement after missing the end of the 2003-04 season because of his latest concussion. Should Stevens return, the Devils would have severe cap problems that would require dealing some of their higher-priced players. Look for Viktor Kozlov to be dealt before October 1st.

Scott Stevens has fully recovered from post-concussion syndrome and is deciding if he wants to return for one more hockey season.

The 41-year-old rearguard last played on January 7, 2004 and will have some catching up to do if he is to skate again for the Devils. Of course, we would never count the competetive Stevens out.

Scott Stevens has reported that is healthy and ready to play this season.

Stevens did not suit up after suffering a concussion on January 7, finishing with 3 goals and 12 points in 38 games with New Jersey. He apparently has been symptom-free all summer and is itching to get back playing. The 40 year-old veteran is still a solid NHL defenceman if healthy, but fantasy-wise he should not be on most if not all teams.

Scott Stevens (post-concussion syndrome) has resumed taking part in his off-season workout program.

It is unknown whether Montreal-based concussion specialist Dr. Karen Johnston has cleared Stevens to take part in full-contact practices and games.

Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello told reporters that Scott Stevens is doing very well and that the Devils expect him back this upcoming season.

That of course, is if there is hockey this season. Stevens, who is recovering from post-concussion syndrome, last played on January 9th.
Fri, Jul 2, 2004 11:13:00 AM

Scott Stevens told the New York Post that he intends to play again next season.

Stevens, who missed the Devils' last 44 games suffering from post-concussion syndrome, is confident he will make a 100% recovery in time to play whenever the upcoming season commences.

Scott Stevens has still not received medical clearance to resume playing.

GM Lou Lamirello confirmed yesterday that there is still no timetable for Stevens' return. For all intents and purposes, Stevens will not be back this season at all. If New Jersey is to repeat as Stanley Cup champions, it will be without their hard hitting blueliner.

It is being reported that Scott Stevens may play for the Devils' farm team today.

Although no one will confirm or deny the rumour, Stevens may suit up for Albany this afternoon as they play their season finale. If Stevens is this close to returning, it would be a huge boost to the Devils' lineup to have him back on their blueline. We shall see what happens, as Stevens' return has been very secretive to date.

It does not look as if Scott Stevens will play much, or at all, in the first round of the playoffs, reports the Star Ledger.

He has been skating the past two weeks after missing the Devils' past 43 games with post-concussion syndrome, but he has not been cleared to play by head-injury specialist Dr. Karen Johnston. There is no word as to when that clearance will be given. The Devils are approaching the post-season assuming that Stevens will not be playing. You should too.

After an appointment with noted concussion specialist Dr. Karen Johnston, Scott Stevens was not cleared to practice with the Devils, reports The Star Ledger.

He is still not 100%, and will not practice with the team, until he is. As such, there is no timetable for Steven's return to action, and we would therefore not recommend him in any playoff pool.
