Dillon Fournier has decided to end his playing career due to a chronic shoulder injury.
Fournier was taken by Chicago with the 48th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but his pro career never really got off the ground. He's had multiple shoulder surgeries since suffering an injury in 2014 and only played in four ECHL games during the 2016-17 campaign. "It’s one of those things," Fournier's agent, Jim Nice said. "‘Am I going to keep banging around? For what purpose? To play in the East Coast League?’ I think he just had enough mentally is the way to put it. ‘I’m a young man. I have my whole life ahead of me. If I have another surgery, what if it happens again? I want to pick up my future kids and toss them in the air.’ It wasn’t easy obviously. It’s all he’s ever known in life." Fournier plans to return to school to finish his education. Thu, Jun 8, 2017 11:12:00 AM
