The Predators forward announced his retirement from the National Hockey League after 14 seasons in a story published Wednesday for The Players Tribune.

Fiddler gushed about each organization he played for throughout his retirement announcement and discussed his love for hockey at an early age.

However, during his final year playing professional hockey, Fiddler was traded back to the Predators from the New Jersey Devils, leading to an incredible run he will never forget.

Fiddler, who made his National Hockey League debut with Nashville in 2002, collected 104 goals 157 assists and 558 penalty minutes in 877 career contests with the then-Phoenix Coyotes, Dallas Stars, Devils and Predators. "All the people I've mentioned in this story helped a kid, who nearly missed his chance, make it to the National Hockey League".

Fiddler says coming full circle was special with the Predators' run to the Stanley Cup Final a "perfect way to finish my career".

He was acquired by the Predators from the Devils on February 5, and played 20 regular-season games (one goal) and nine Stanley Cup Playoff games (one goal, one assist) with Nashville. "Even though we didn't quite get the job done, it was an fantastic few months", he penned. That call to my parents in 2002? "But here we are", Fiddler wrote in The Players' Tribune.
