Long time NHL veteran Mike Grier, who played fourteen seasons with Edmonton, Washington, Buffalo and San Jose, has officially announced his retirement. As per the NHLPA statement:
“Grier, 36, appeared in a total of 1,060 regular season NHL games, recording 162 goals and 221 assists for 383 points. He also played in 101 NHL playoff games, as his teams qualified for the playoffs in 11 of his 14 seasons in the league.”
SPECTOR’S NOTE: I always enjoyed Grier’s aggressive, physical style of play. Best of luck to him and his family in his retirement.
