Chad LaRose has…probably…retired…

According to the Raleigh News & Observer's Luke DeCock, the Carolina Hurricanes are pretty sure that Chad Larose, the first player to graduate from Peter Karmanos's Plymouth Whalers of the OHL to first his ECHL team, the Florida Everblades, and then the Carolina Hurricanes, has retired, but nobody's quite sure what LaRose's plans involve, and there's a simple reason for that confusion:

His contract with the Hurricanes expired June 30. He didn’t show up for his end-of-season exit interview, according to Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford. He has not been reachable through multiple phone or text messages this summer.

LaRose joined the Hurricanes as an unknown. He leaves a mystery.

Continued with a superb profile of LaRose and an in-retrospect look at his career.

I always wondered if he was related to Rosie LaRose…

I always liked LaRose.  Gritty player.  I hope his head’s clear and this isn’t indicative of bigger personal issues.
