Two-time Stanley Cup champion Jamie Langenbrunner announced his retirement Wednesday, the National Hockey League Players' Association announced in a press release.
Langenbrunner, 38, spent 16 full seasons in the NHL and parts of two others. He won the Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars in 1999 and the New Jersey Devils in 2003. He represented the United States twice in the Olympics and took home a silver medal from Vancouver in 2010.
In 1,109 games he had 243 goals and 420 assists for 663 points. He also had 34 goals and 87 points in 146 Stanley Cup Playoff games. Langenbrunner had 10 goals and 17 points during the Stars' Cup run in 1999; he had 11 goals and 18 points in the Devils' Cup run in 2003.
Langenbrunner also played for the St. Louis Blues.
"It was a dream come true to have the opportunity to play in the NHL for 16 seasons," Langenbrunner said. "The friendships I developed with my teammates, and also the people in the communities where I played, will always be cherished by my family and I. I would like to thank Bob Gainey, Lou Lamoriello and Doug Armstrong for giving me the opportunity to play against the top players in hockey, in the best League in the world. I'd also like to thank my coaches and teammates for helping a kid from Minnesota enjoy a long, fulfilling hockey career. Finally, I'd like to thank my truly amazing family for all their sacrifices they made so I could live my dream."
