Brian Rolston announces retirement from NHL after 17 seasons
Brian Rolston, a former member of the Devils and Bruins among others, announced his retirement on Tuesday after 17 seasons.
Brian Rolston didn't play in the NHL this season, but he was still technically an active NHL player. That was until Tuesday, when he announced his retirement.
"Getting the chance to play the game I love for 17 years has truly been a dream come true," Rolston said. "My career has taken me to many great places where I had the privilege to play with some exceptional teammates and in the best league in the world. The memories of all my experiences will certainly stick with me for the rest of my life. I am grateful for the overwhelming support of my friends, family and fans throughout my career."
Rolston, a first-round pick by the New Jersey Devils in 1991, played in 1,256 career games, most recently with the Bruins in 2011-12 after being traded midseason from the Islanders. He totaled 342 goals and 419 assists and was part of the Devils' Stanley Cup team in 1994-95, his rookie season.
Rolston also represented Team USA in the 1994, 2002 and 2006 Olympic Games, helping the USA to a silver in Salt Lake City.
