Hal Gill Retires

from the NHLPA,

Hal Gill has announced his retirement from the National Hockey League (NHL) after 16 seasons.

Gill played in a total of 1,108 career NHL games with six teams: Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators and the Philadelphia Flyers. He scored 36 goals and 148 assists for 184 points in his NHL career. Gill, a six-foot-seven, 243-pound defenceman, played on the Stanley Cup-winning Penguins in 2009 after reaching the Cup Final in back-to-back seasons.

“I am so thankful to have played for such great organizations. I was lucky to have made amazing friendships throughout my career and live in so many beautiful cities. I would like to thank the fans for their support, the coaches for their direction, the team staffs for their efforts, and most of all, my teammates for their camaraderie (and keeping me in line),” said Hal Gill. “Thank you, as well, to Global Hockey Consultants for their commitment to building my career, and to my family for staying strong through the lows and steady through the highs. I’m very excited for the next chapter of my life.”
