David Backes Retiring With The St. Louis Blues

from David Backes at Blues website,

And now we are here, my NHL chapter has concluded.

The game got faster and younger and I haven't been associated with either of those adjectives in a long time.

My final goal was to play 1,000 games, but I came up 35 short.

In the end, it's not that all these numbers don't matter - they do, and I am damn proud of them. But the metrics that mean the most to me are the countless experiences and everlasting relationships that the game provided me.

That's what I find is beyond measure.
