from Rick Weegman of the Duluth News Tribune,
The former Cloquet High School star was to be feted for his 18-year playing career, one which organizers of a fundraising hockey game at the Heritage Center apparently believed to be over after hip surgery ended Langenbrunner’s season with the St. Louis Blues after just four games.
But the ceremony was a late scratch as Langenbrunner has no plans on retiring.
“I’m not ready yet,” he said before taking the ice at the Heritage Summer Hockey Classic. “After going through the surgery (for a torn labrum), I feel as good as I have as far as skating. It’s great to get to a point where there’s no pain skating, and I’m looking forward to continuing my training this summer and see where it takes me.”
An unrestricted free agent, Langenbrunner can sign with any team.
“It’s a process of waiting to see what teams need,” he said. “They went through their prospect camps, and then teams reconvene and figure out what they want to do — whether they want to bring in a veteran guy or if they are going to go young. We’ll see in the next couple weeks if there’s a good opportunity, and, if not, then I will figure out the next stage of life.”
