Matt Cullen retires from National Hockey League after 21 seasons

Matt Cullen retires from National Hockey League after 21 seasons”

Cullen already has his retirement mapped out - he plans to play plenty of hockey with his three sons. Internationally, Cullen won a bronze medal for the United States at the 2004 World Men's Hockey Championship in Prague.

Joe Thornton, a forward who turned 40 on July 2, is older than Miller but is an unsigned free agent, as are forwards Patrick Marleau (40 on September 15) and Chris Kunitz (40 on September 26). I'm 40 years old.

Cullen had been the oldest active player since January 29, 2018, when Calgary Flames forward Jaromir Jagr was assigned to Kladno in the Czech Republic.

The B's captain will play at least one more year and will celebrate his 43rd birthday while (hopefully) heading into the home stretch of the 2019-20 season preparing for another Stanley Cup run. He is recovering from a fractured jaw sustained in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues but said after that series he expected to be ready for training camp.

The 42-year-old forward, born in Virginia, Minn. rounded out his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins finishing with seven goals and 13 assists in 71 games. I've never done anything. Even if we had won the Cup I would have been done.

The veteran center announced his decision to hang up the skates via the Penguins' Twitter account on Wednesday. "It just felt right and I really at peace with everything when it was over". I never wanted to do anything else. He scored 266 goals and posted 731 points with the Ducks, Florida Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators, Wild, Nashville Predators and Penguins.
