Mathieu Dandenault Retires

from hockeyfights.com,

Mathieu Dandenault, a veteran of 13 NHL seasons and a three-time Stanley Cup winner, officially announced his retirement from the National Hockey League today.

“It was a childhood dream of mine to play in the NHL and having the opportunity to play for two original-six franchises made it even more special,” said Dandenault. “I grew up a huge Montreal Canadiens fan so skating out onto the ice in Montreal for the first time as a member of the Habs is something I will never forget. I feel honoured to have my name engraved on the Stanley Cup as a Detroit Red Wing. I would like to thank the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens organizations as well as the fans, my family and friends.”

Wow, that really sucks.

I still remember his first NHL goal was against his childhood idol, Roy, in the game that ended Roy’s MTL career.

Hope to see you around.
