Manny Malhotra: Looking to transition into coaching
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malhotra will hang up his skates in exchange for a clipboard, as he announced that he is retiring from professional hockey and looking to start coaching, Jeff Paterson of The Province reports.

Malhotra most recently played for AHL Lake Erie, but appeared in just 23 contests. Moving forward, the center will look to rejoin the Canucks organization as a coach instead. Selected seventh overall in the 1998 NHL Draft, the 36-year-old never quite lived up to expectations, with his best season coming in 2008-09 with the Blue Jackets (35 points and 28 PIM). Malhotra potted 116 goals in 991 career NHL games.

He saw just 9:31 worth of action during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Malhotra is a combined minus-3 over his last two games and skated just 12:03 against the Canucks on Sunday.After being a consistent 30-plus point scorer for three seasons (2008-2011), Malhotra has pretty much seen his best days pass him by. He has just four points through 15 games so far this season and should continue to anchor the Canes' fourth line for the foreseeable future.

Malhotra will be in the lineup Friday against the Lightning, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.Malhotra will return to the NHL after suffering serious vision issues that kept him away from the game in 2012-13. Consider him a high-risk pickup at this point, though he's capable of putting up 30 points over the rest of the season if he really is healthy.

Malhotra agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Thursday.Concerns about Malhotra's vision, stemming from a serious eye injury in 2011, resulted in the Canucks shutting Malhotra down just nine games into the 2012-13 season. The Hurricanes are evidently fine with where he's at, as they brought the 33-year-old aboard Thursday. He put up 30-plus points in three straight seasons from 2008-2011.
