Jamal Mayers Retires

from the NHLPA,

Jamal Mayers, a Stanley Cup champion and valued teammate throughout his career, announced his retirement from the National Hockey League (NHL) today after 14 seasons.

“It really has been an amazing experience to have had the chance to play 14 seasons in the NHL, and finish it all off last season as a part of the Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup,” said Mayers. “Thank you to my mother Doreen, who gave me every opportunity to play this game while doing a remarkable job as a single parent of two in Toronto, my brother Allan for everything he did and gave up for me, and my stepdad Alan Crosswell. I would also like to thank my teammates, friends and fans, as well as Larry Pleau, Pat Brisson, Jim Nice and each of the five organizations I was fortunate enough to play for in my career. Certainly, those who sacrificed the most for my career were my wife and kids, and I can’t express enough how much their love and support has meant to me.”

He was a tough player.  Good fighter, too.  I hated him when he was with St Louis & Chicago but he did his job.  Respect.

Classy speech. And man… those eyebrows.
