Bryan Bickell Will Retire After Two More Games

from Kurt Dusterberg at NHL.com,

Carolina Hurricanes forward Bryan Bickell will retire from the NHL after playing in the Hurricanes' final two regular-season games, he told NHL.com on Saturday.

Bickell, who rejoined Carolina on April 3 after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November, has played in the Hurricanes' past two games.

"I've made the decision with my family that I'm going to call it quits, so it's just these last two games," said Bickell, who will play at home against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; FS-CR, FS-MW, NHL.TV) and at the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

Bickell, 31, said he did not plan to call a press conference.
