Head coach Darryl Sutter, Alec Martinez #27 and Dustin Brown #23 of the Los Angeles Kings attend practice in preparation for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series against the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium on January 24, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
