New York Rangers forward Markus Naslund has announced his retirement after 15 seasons in the National Hockey League.
The 35-year-old veteran signed a two-year, $8 million contract as a free agent with the Rangers last summer, and still had one year remaining on the deal, worth $3 million.
"I would like to sincerely thank Glen Sather and the New York Rangers for giving me the opportunity this past season in New York," said Naslund in a statement. "I would also like to thank the Vancouver Canucks and all of their fans for their support over the 11-plus seasons I was a part of their organization, as well as to the Pittsburgh Penguins where I began my NHL career."
