Scott Nichol has announced his retirement as a player.
He has been brought on board by the Nashville Predators to serve as the club's director of player development. "Every year we sit down as a family and go over if we want to keep going," said Nichol, who would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency in July. "We loved our time in St. Louis, and as a player you always want to play no matter how old you are. But I thought it was time. Nashville approached me, and it was hard to pass it up. I wanted to stay in the game and this was the best chance to give back to the game that gave so much to me. I'll be part of a great organization and I can still tell all of my bad stories and bad jokes and hopefully people will still laugh." Nichol played with Nashville from 2005-06 through 2008-09. He spent the past two seasons with St. Louis and will retire with 662 games of NHL experience under his belt. Wed, Jun 5, 2013 05:42:00 PM
