GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Martin St. Louis on Monday made his first public comments since announcing his retirement in a press release July 2. He spoke about why he decided to retire and what he will be doing now.
There was, however, more to St. Louis' near 20-minute press conference. Here are some more quotes and tidbits from St. Louis:
St. Louis said the fact that he is a retired hockey player has already hit him because he has so much free time this summer.
"It's the first time in my life there is no agenda," he said. "I don't have to go training. I don't have to answer to anybody. It's actually a really nice place to be. I have enjoyed being with my kids. Every summer I am anyway, but when you're training, you're preparing for a season there is always a little stress that comes with that in the preparation, are you ready, are you not ready, are you doing everything you can. Now there is none of that. None of that crosses my mind. It's definitely a great place to be."
