TORONTO (November 5, 2013) – Jason Arnott, a veteran of 18 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons, a Stanley Cup champion, and a 12-time 20-goal scorer – including three seasons when he scored over 30 goals – officially announced his retirement from the NHL today.
Arnott played for six teams – Edmonton, New Jersey, Dallas, Nashville, Washington and St. Louis – in his NHL career. He played in 1,244 NHL games, while scoring 417 goals, 521 assists and 938 points, and recording a plus-minus of +81 and 1,242 penalty minutes. Arnott’s career was highlighted by his Stanley Cup-winning goal for the New Jersey Devils in double-overtime in game six of the 2000 Stanley Cup Final against the Dallas Stars.
“I would like to thank everyone who helped me throughout my NHL career, including my family, friends, teammates and fans. Playing in the NHL was my dream, and I am very proud and appreciative of the fact I was able to play at the highest level for 19 years, with the best players in the world,” said Arnott. “Each of the teams I played for provided me with great experiences and memories, and our Stanley Cup team in New Jersey certainly stands out among all of them.”
